Three suspects were arrested on Wednesday, April 5, 2023, by a team of detectives who had been on their trail. The suspects, Uluko Adukwu (28), Salisu Aduh (38), and Adams Halilu (24) were nabbed around 4 pm following intelligence reports on their activities around Jikwoyj area of Abuja. The suspects were found in the company of two small boys of ages 11 and 13, who are suspected to be their victims at the time of the arrest.
Public Relations Officer, SP Istifanus Sunday Bako, disclosed that the detectives stormed Jikwoyi and Orozo along Karu in the FCT Area of Abuja and apprehended the suspects. According to him, all suspects confessed to being involved in using charms to defraud people, particularly giving charms to cybercrime and internet fraudsters, popularly known as Yahoo Plus. These cybercrime fraudsters use the charm on their victims, which sometimes leads to the death of some of the victims in order to achieve their aim and get whatever they want from their victims.
The police spokesperson also revealed that 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.
Meanwhile, the Zone 7 AIG, Kayode Egbetokun (now DIG Kayode Egbetokun), has encouraged worshippers to be careful where they worship and report suspicious activities to the police. On his last day in office, he busted the ritualist’s gang.
