Bauchi State Police Command has recovered the genital organ of a 6-year-old girl mutilated by two ritualists, Abdulkadir Wada Haladu, 19, and Adamu Abdulrauf, 20, in Jama’are town.
The Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Ahmed Mohammed Wakil, disclosed this to newsmen during a media briefing Wednesday.
According to him, the fleeing suspect, Haladu, was arrested in connection to the crime in Mararraba, Nasarawa State, where he voluntarily confessed and implicated his friend, Abdulrauf.
Speaking with newsmen while being paraded, the arrested suspect, Haladu, said, “I am not the one that removed the genital part of the victim.
“It was my friend (Adamu Abdulrauf) who cut off her Virgina but I accompanied him and took part in the operation.
“While he was removing the genitals, an Almajiri entered the uncompleted building, so we rushed out of the building and ran away to the ritualists who instructed us to bring the genitals to make money.”
“I met my friend in the house of ritualists and the man collected the two knifes used in the operations and wrapped them.
“My friend also removed the cloth he used in the operation and the ritualists asked us to go.
“When I heard that the police came to our house looking for me, I ran away because I knew the ungodly act we committed but regret my action because I cannot do this to my younger sister,” Haladu said.
The police PRO said a Mirinda bottle containing the suspected genital organ (complete Vulva; Libia Majora, Libia Minora and clitoris) was recovered in the house of Haladu.
Other exhibits recovered from the suspects’ hideout include; two knives, three bottles containing native medicine, one carton containing some native dry medicines tied inside polythene bags; one dry animal skin, two Islamic native black boards, one calabash, one hoe and two locally made dishes”
