Suspected Ritualists Behead 2-Year-Old


A sordid story of man’s inhumanity to man was told yesterday in Minna as a two-year-old girl was beheaded and vital parts of her body taken by suspected ritualists in an uncompleted building at Kafin Tela/Tunga area of the state capital.

NEWSMEN findings revealed that Ummul-Khairu Muhammad was beheaded in the building which was a few metres away from her family house where children normally gather to play.

The people of the area were taken aback yesterday afternoon when they went into the building to find the body of the baby that left home about 10am and whose parents thought was with one of her peers dead.

The mother, Malama Fati Muhammad, who is 22 years old, said that the late baby was her first child , that she had already prepared her to go for Quranic school that morning only to find the body later dumped in the uncompleted building after she finished house chores and was looking for her.

Fati, known as Maman Ummi by neighbours, said that she normally went everywhere with her daughter but the daughter had soaked her clothes in water and she decided to change them and, before she could put her another dress, the little girl sneaked out to her usual playing ground before she was found beheaded.

When contacted, the Niger State police public relations officer, ASP Richard Oguche, confirmed the incident.

He said the police had promptly mobilised its men for adequate intelligence operation with the aim of arresting the perpetrators of the inhuman act.
