The building, located on the outskirts of the community, was said to be owned by an elderly man (names withheld) who died few days ago after which his younger brother took possession of the said building, as the deceased’s immediate family reside outside the community.
According to Vanguard, the immediate family visited the place on Monday night towards preparation for the burial only to discover an existing shrine erected by their uncle. Items found at the shrine include blood soaked clothings, calabashes and clay pots filled with blood.
The family reportedly raised the alarm that attracted the Community Development Association CDA, but they said their uncle claimed that his conduct was in their favour. However, the CDA trailed the report until the early hours of yesterday and alerted the Police that went into action and uncovered more items like human parts and charms but the suspect was said to have taken to his heels before the arrival of the Police.
Upon investigations, two other suspects were said to have been arrested in connection with the crime. The scene attracted crowd and caused panic in the Community but a team from the Area Command was said to have assured residents of their safety.
Exhibits found at the scene have been taken away by men of the Nigeria Police for investigations.
