A suspected ritual identified as Achor has been apprehended while trying to sacrifice a nine-year-old girl in Ibaa community, in the Emuoha Local Government Area of Rivers State.

It was disclosed that the parent of the minor had raised alarm after she went missing when she went to dispose of refuse in a nearby bush.

A source who spoke on the incident noted that Achor took the minor to an abandoned compound and was about performing the ritual when he ran out of luck.

It was disclosed that the suspect tied the nine-year-old girl with white cloths, applied white clay on her body, while a coffin was already stationed for the ritual purpose when he was caught.
