Police Arrest Three Ritualists Operating Fake Churches, Shrines In Abuja
The long arm of the law has caught up with three suspected ritualists who allegedly engage in diabolical practices and operate fake churches and shrines within the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
The suspects are 28-year-old Uluko Adukwu, 38-year-old Salisu Aduh, and 24-year-old Adams Halilu.
Police Operatives from Zone 7 stormed Jikwoyi and Orozo along Karu at about 4:00 pm on Wednesday, where they apprehended the three suspects alongside two boys, aged 11 and 13, believed to be their victims.
“All suspects confessed to having been involved in using charms to defraud people, especially giving charms to cybercrime and internet fraudsters, aka Yahoo Plus, who in turn use the charm on their victims, which sometimes results in the death of some of the victims in order to achieve their aim and get whatever they want from their victims,” the Zonal Command Spokesperson, SP Sunday Bako, said.
Three empty caskets, one Toyota Prado Jeep, one Lexus 330 Car, 15 mobile phones, some clothing and women’s underwear believed to have belonged to the dead victims were also found at the scene of the crime.
Meanwhile, the AIG in charge of the Zone, now DIG Kayode Egbetokun, has admonished worshippers to be careful where they worship and report suspicious activities to the Police.
