    Police Parade Ritualist, Bank Syndicate In Enugu

    The Enugu State Police Command, yesterday, paraded a suspected ritualist, identified as John Igwe, who was arrested for being in possession of a human head.
    The commissioner of police in the State, Mr. Nwodibo Ekechukwu, who paraded the suspected ritualist alongside other suspects, said Igwe was nabbed on his way to Ebonyi State for an alleged money-making ritual.
    According to the Commissioner, “On 16th of this month, at Amaechi-Idodo, along Enugu-Abakiliki Express Way, our men intercepted a Toyota bus conveying three passengers; on searching the vehicle, they discovered a human head.

    “Investigation revealed that one John Igwe from Effiom in Ebonyi State was in possession of the unlawful object. He said he had suffered a lot, breaking stones to make a living, and later met a friend, who introduced him to a native doctor, known as Ifeanyi. The native doctor, thereafter, requested him to bring human head for the ritual that will be made available to him.”
    Also paraded is an alleged leader of a syndicate, who specialises in manipulating bank data of individuals.
     The Commissioner disclosed that the suspects used various means to access personal information of individuals, stressing that “they go to communication service providers and apply for welcome back of registered numbers.

    “When they obliged, they ex-communicate the true owners of the numbers so that when their bank account officers try to contacting them to verify some transactions, they can’t be reached”.
     While identifying the suspected leader of the syndicate as one Felix Thompson Onyebuchi, an indigene of Obingwa in Abia State, the CP said he came all the way from Lagos to Enugu for the illegal job.
    He further stated that the group, who had earlier succeeded in withdrawing the sum of N11m from a customer’s account, was on the verge of withdrawing another N50m, when they were apprehended.

    Four pregnant girls, who were arrested alongside an operator of a suspected ‘baby factory’, were also paraded. The baby factory is said to be located at Ogui-Eke in Udi Local Government Area of the State.
    Ekechukwu disclosed that the suspect, who runs a clinic in Enugu metropolis, is in the business of getting pregnant teenage girls or luring them to be impregnated and then nurturing them before they are delivered of the babies at the clinic.
    He stated that upon delivery of the babies, the suspect, who claims to be a nurse, would pay the girls N10,000 before selling off the babies at the rate of N300,000 and above.
