The Enugu State Police Command has arrested a man who allegedly abused a minor s*xually for money ritual in the state.
The state Police PRO, Ebere Amaraizu, said this in a statement in Enugu on Sunday. He said the suspect was nabbed on December 11, 2106, after the police got “a lot of report” about him.
He added that his eventual arrest was through intelligence by detectives of the command.
He said the suspect, a resident of Opanda in the Uzo-Uwani area of the state, often had anal s*x with his victims.
The police spokesman said the suspect had believed that wealth could be gotten through money ritual by s*xually abusing male and female minors.
“He has s*xually abused no fewer than 11 minors through their anus. The suspect revealed that he has a white cloth with which he used to clean the face of his victims, usually within the age range of three, four, seven, eight, nine and eleven.
“He further revealed to the police that as soon as the white cloth was used to clean any face, the person would lose consciousness and follow him to where he will abuse him or her through the anus.
“This is for the purpose of reaping the victim’s destiny, which in turn would help to boost the process of his financial acquisition and wealth,” he said.
When asked whether he had started getting the money, Amaraizu said the suspect replied that he was still in the process as it needed to be completed with at least 15 minors.
The police spokesman said a full-scale investigation had started into the activities of the suspect with a view to arresting his accomplices if there were any.
Amaraizu said the suspect had been cooperating with policemen that were interrogating him.
“The suspect is now regretting his alleged nefarious activities of s*xually abusing minors.”
