The Zone 7 Abuja Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), a Superintendent of Police, Istifanus Sunday Bako, said that the Police have arrested suspected ritual killers, who were operating fake churches and shrines in Abuja.
Bako said that Police operatives from Zone 7, Abuja, on April 5, 2023, at about 4:PM, based on intelligence gathered and led by a team of detectives, stormed Jikwoyi and Orozo along Karu, the FCT Area of Abuja, and arrested three suspects, Uluko Adukwu, 28, Salisu Aduh, 38 and Adams Halilu, 24, together with two small boys of ages 11 and 13 suspected to be their victims, all residents of Abuja and all from Kogi State.
Bako further said: “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.
“During the operation, three empty caskets, one Toyota Prado Jeep, one Lexus 330 Car, and fifteen mobile phones were recovered from the suspects; some clothing and women’s underwear believed to have belonged to the dead victims were also found at the scene of the crime.
