Reports says, the suspects identified as John Igwe and other culprits Ifeanyi Nwanguji, Chibueze Nwanga and Offor buike were travelling from Enugu to Abakiliki when the police stopped the bus they boarded for a ‘stop and search’ operation.
According to reports by the Enugu State Police Command, the suspect John Igwe hid a human head in a black nylon bag inside his travelling bag. The suspect confessed to have engaged in money ritual because of poverty and that he only exhumed a corpse and cut off its head at a cemetery in the Emene area of Enugu.
“A friend took me to a native doctor in Abakiliki and I was asked to go and bring human head. I was going there with the human head when I was arrested. “I got it (human head) at the cemetery; I did not kill anybody. It is for money ritual; I have suffered so much in life,” Igwe said.
