A 27-year-old man has escaped death by its whiskers after he was attacked by a suspected ritual killer in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital.
It was gathered that the incident happened in the early hours of Tuesday, Septemeber 29, around Obafemi Awolowo stadium.
According to an eye witness, Wole Williams, the victim suddenly ran out of a bush path of the stadium calling for help after being attacked by a suspected ritualist.
“I was here when we suddenly saw the man running out of the bush, at first, we thought it was two madmen fighting because we had lots of madmen living around this place, we decided to move close to him when they continued shouting for help, on getting there, he explained how a ritualist suddenly grabbed him from behind and started eating his mouth, palm and had removed his teeth while he struggled with the ritualist before he eventually escaped,” the witness said.
A search party was organised to fish out the suspected ritualist.
“While searching for the suspected ritualist, a small place serving as a shelter for the ritualist was seen covered with mosquito net.” the witness added.
According to Nigerian Tribune, items such as bones suspected to be remnants of the part of victims, mosquito net, iPhone charger, bags, ATM cards, male and female clothing, an MP3 player were discovered at the scene.
While the victim was being taken to a hospital by the police, angry mobs descended on the mentally challenged men in the area who they suspected to be the perpetrators of the crime.
Many reactions bordered on Nigerians keeping safe in these “ember” months because it is believed that ritualists work overtime du ring those months.
