The Police Is Your Friend.
The 25-year-old man was arrested after the police found him with a severed head which he claimed belongs to his dead son. He was on his way to meeting the buyer at a location in Azare town before nemesis caught up with him last Thursday.
Maikudi [translates to a rich man in Hausa language] is the name of this wretched ritualist from hell who reports say, lives in Galambi village of Miassau Local Government Area.
His son was recently buried in a village in Bauchi state, police said.
He confessed in a police report that he had to go back to the grave yard on the night his deceased son was buried to exhume his body and cut off the head so he could sell it for money.
Aliyu Babayo is one of the witnesses present at the time Maikudi was arrested by a team of police officers. According to the onlooker, the suspect looked unfamiliar and may not be an indigene of Missau local government area which he claims to be.
“He is not an indigene of Missau; nobody knows his identity. We understand he is on transit that is all we know about the suspect,” the witness said.
