Enugu: Native Doctor, Others Storm Catholic Cemetery, Harvest Human Parts


A native doctor and three other accomplices have being arrested from exhuming human parts from tombs inside a Catholic cemetery at Ajaba Mmaku, in the Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State.

Sources told SaharaReporters that on Saturday, a man in charge of the bakery section within the church premises caught the suspects harvesting human parts in the cemetery

When the suspects realized that the baker had sighted them, they approached him and made him promise to conceal the information. The baker agreed to their demands as he was scared that they might hurt him.

However, when they left him he went back and informed the priest in-charge of the church.

The sources said that the suspects, on sighting the priest and some people, took to their heels.

The source said, “Because the Neighbourhood Watch (local vigilantes) of Mmaku had been alerted, so they gave a hot chase arrested three and one escaped.

“Those arrested include Aloysius Okeke (aka Aloy Ojoma), Israel Okoli, and Amaechi Udeji, all from Enugu Afam Village in Agunese Mmaku Autonomous Community.”

Meanwhile, the source said that manhunt for the fleeing suspect had been intensified, adding that business of getting human parts for ritual purposes had been on for some time in the community and neighbouring communities.
