A 19-year-old, Sunday Owo, has been apprehended with fresh human parts at a healing home, Centre for Psychic Healing and Administration, Awka, Anambra State.
The body parts recovered from him by the police included the genitals, fingers and blood-filled bottle of a child suspected to have been killed by him.
The owner of the healing home, Ifeanyichukwu Ilonzo, who squealed on Owo, said he hailed from Ohaukwu in Ebonyi State.
Owo said he was asked by one Blessing to get the human parts and bring them to a natural healing home in Awka for money ritual.
He said he paid Blessing N50,000 for connecting him to the healing home.
He confessed that the victim, whose parts he had, was about four years old and that he killed him in a stream in his town and threw the head and other parts into the stream.
Two said: “She (Blessing) brought me here two days ago and said that madam instructed her to tell me to bring these body parts that I will have money.
“Her name is Blessing.
“She is also from Ebonyi State, but she said we can’t get these parts here, so we went back to Ebonyi State where I got them and brought it here.
“I don’t know where Blessing is now.
“I paid her N50,000 for linking me up.”
Ilonzo, however, said she invited the media and the police on seeing such strange thing.
She said: “I and my staff were on ward-round after morning prayers when we saw the man with the human parts.
“He said he was looking for me as he had brought the items.
“When the content of the black bag was opened, l instructed my staff not to let him go and invited security agencies and the media to witness what we saw.
“One Blessing Eze had come for healing of fibroid and l gave her prescription, after which she left but had not returned.
“Eze’s consultation card bears Ifite-Awka as her address.
“This is some of the suspected frame-ups by people who wish to undo me.
“I had witnessed such attempts in the past, including failed efforts to take my life.”
The spokesman of the Anambra State Police Command, Mohammed Haruna, said investigation had commenced into the incident.
