A gang of ritual killers, who confessed to kidnapping, defiling and butchering one miss Chigaekwu from Umunachi village last year, have reportedly been arrested by vigilantes in Nkwerre, Imo state on Thursday.
Interestingly, two pastors of the Lord’s Chosen Catholic Charismatics Church are said to be members of the six-man gang.
Mr. Marcel Ezenwa who shared the story on Facebook, said one of the pastors was arrested by Imo State Rapid Response Squad Command while he was in church ministering to children.
According to him the gang was busted by the vigilantee in Nkwerre through the assistance of some youth leaders before the police were invited to the crime scene in Umugara village Nkwerre to take over the case.
Three of the men have been arrested while three are still at large, he said.
Those arrested have been singing and have confessed to being behind the kidnap of a 12-year-old girl from Umugara village for ritual purposes for a token of N500,000 and another N500,000 after delivery of human parts or victim. They also confessed to being part of a gang that kidnapped, defiled and butchered one miss Chigaekwu from Umunachi village last year.
