The suspects are identified as; Samuel Peter Tsado, Mohammed Ghara aka Madi, Abubakar Mohammed aka Mallam Baba Pati, Mohammed Ahmadu, and Bala Karin.
Sources say the suspects cajoled their victim, a suspected prostitute, to a secluded residence and allegedly beheaded her for money ritual purposes
“On June 29, 2021, at about 23:08hrs, an unknown young person, later identified as Samuel Peter Tsado ‘m’ of Patigi town in Patigi Local government area of Kwara State, went to one Victory Hotel Patigi and requested for the service of a commercial sex worker by name Abigail ‘f’ (other names unknown).
“After the monetary negotiation of N5,000:00, both Peter and Abigail left the hotel premises to an unknown place, ever since then both of them were not seen again.
“On the receipt of the report of a missing person, the commissioner of police, who suspected a foul play directed the case be taken over by the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for a discreet investigation,’’ the State’s Police PRO, Okasanmi Ajayi, said in a statement on Friday.
The investigation, however, led to the arrest of one Samuel Peter Tsado, who confessed that he actually contracted the deceased for sex.
He also confirmed that he and one Mohammed Agbara ‘m’ a.k.a. Madi, both agreed and planned how to make money ritual and in furtherance of their desires, they planned on how to source for the human head that would be needed for the money rituals which prompted him to leave his house at Patigi for Victory hotel with his motorcycle where he approached the late Abigail, a sex worker, who agreed to follow him home after agreeing on N5,000:00 for the night.
Eons Intelligence gathered that at Samuel Peters’ home, where Mohammed Gbara ‘m’ an accomplice was already waiting, Abigail was strangulated by the duo of Samuel Peter Tsado and Mohammed Gbara.
The head of late Abigail was severed with a knife. The headless body of the deceased was conveyed by the suspects on Samuel Peter Tsado’s motorcycle and dumped in the bush along Patigi/Rifun road.
The Police PRO added; “Both Samuel and Mohammed went separately away to reassemble in Bida, Niger state on June 30, 2021. While in Bida, the deceased head was kept in Mohammed Abubakar ‘m’ a.k.a. Mallam Baba Pati’s home, awaiting the arrival of the ritualist from Maiduguri in Borno state for the money ritual exercise.
“Investigation took detectives to Bida and Minna in Niger State where three other suspects were arrested. They confessed to the offence and also confessed to have been involved in an earlier ritual attempt using the hand of one victim yet to be identified.
