A man with hunchback who was declared missing two weeks ago has been found dead in a suspected case of ritual killing, IgbereTV reports.
Mr Suberu Dada, of Obeiba Ihima, Okehi LGA, Kogi State, was kidnapped on Nov 22. Unfortunately, his decaying body was found today, Dec 8, at Iruvochinomi, Ege, Adavi LGA in Kogi state.
Kogi politician, Natasha Akpoti had taken to Facebook two days after his kidnap to share a “missing person” post, begging the public to reach out if they have information that could lead to his rescue.
She explained at the time that he was “abducted by gunmen in a black SUV while waiting to cross the road leading to Oride mosque, beside St. Paul’s Church Obeiba, Ihima.”
She later gave an update that the missing hunchback man was found dead.

“Update on the Missing Person
With a heavy heart the good public is notified of the death of Mr. Suberu Dada who was declared missing on the 23rd of September 2020.
His remains were found in the early hours of today (8th December 2020) at Iruvochinomi, Ege, Adavi LGA, Kogi state.
This demonic and inhuman act was most likely done for political rituals the very day he was kidnapped.
May God forgive his sins and grant him paradise

Here’s drawing the good public’s attention to the suspected kidnap of one Mr. Suberu Dada, of Obeiba Ihima, Okehi LGA, Kogi State.
He was abducted by gunmen in a black SUV while waiting to cross the road leading to Oride mosque, beside St. Paul’s Church Obeiba, Ihima.
Eyewitness reported the vehicle drove quickly from Okene axis, picked him up and sped off through Ege Road.
Any information leading to his whereabouts should be made known to the nearest Nigeria Police and all social media platforms including members of his family and friends.
We pray God protects him safely till his return and touches the heart of the kidnappers to release Suberu unhurt.

It is suspected that Suberu Dada was murdered for ritual purposes because of his hunchback.
His death comes years after Nigerian hunchbacks cried out that their lives are endangered because of the belief that their condition makes them potent for money rituals. They believe that the ritualists kill people with hunchback in order to extract their hunch for ritual purposes.
