A 23 Year Old Driver Lynched In Anambra State Over Attempted Ritual

IgbereTV reports that a 23-year old man, known as Samuel, has been lynched by angry mob for allegedly attempting to use a 4-year old girl for ritual in Awka, Anambra state.

Samuel who was from Benue State and a driver with a private school in the area, was said to have attempted to kill the little girl in her mother’s shop while she was away.

The mother of the little girl, who is a petty trader, went to buy food for the daughter when she was attacked by Samuel.

The little girl’s mother, Mrs. Ginika Eze, a 42 years old native of Alumona-Nsukka, Enugu state, said Samuel’s plan was to kill her daughter for ritual purposes.

She said, “I brought my daughter to stay with me at the shop so at to keep eye on her since her school was on mid-term break. When she complained she was hungry and wanted to eat beans with bread for lunch, I dashed to a nearby shop to buy the items.

“It was not long my attention was drawn to my stall where my daughter was struggling with a man almost half Unclad. He was kissing her and handling her breast, while saying, “I must drink your blood.”

The woman said she raised alarm as the man was already kissing her all over her face and was about to rape her.

“Luckily, some boys within the area ran to the scene of the incident and started dragging my daughter with him. By then, blood was already dropping from her face as the man held her tight in his arms.”

Also a witness who preferred anonymity, said the deceased was shouting for blood and was about to suck the girl’s blood before he was lynched. He said the father of the deceased had already been contacted.

The Police spokesperson, Haruna Mohammed who confirmed the incident said the deceased was probably under the influence of some hard drugs.

He said, “He captured the 4-year-old girl and was molesting her sexually before he was arrested by some civilians who carried out jungle justice on him. When the police arrived the scene, the boy, who was probably in his late 20s, was lying motionless on the ground while his assailants had dispersed.”

“He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was confirmed dead. Investigations are still on to ascertain what transpired and to arrest perpetrators of the crime.”

Haruna said he has made no arrest in connection to the crime. He revealed that the little girl was undergoing medical treatment.
