Penis thieves on rampage in Abuja, Kogi, others
Strange men and women, who are in the “business” of diabolically stealing men’s manhoods, obviously for ritual purposes, are on rampage in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, neighboring Kogi and some other states in the country.
Their modus openrandi is simple and almost the same. They just touch your body, or exchange word or money with you, and then you immediately feel a body shock, and your manhood suddenly goes flat and disappears without trace!
In one incident in Kogi State, for instance, a middle-aged man suspected to be a manhood thief was recently caught and beaten to a stupor in Lokoja, Kogi state capital.
Eyewitnesses said the incident happened when the suspect visited a shop behind Dunamis Church in Lokoja, ostensibly to buy bread.
It was gathered that pandemonium ensued when the shop owner felt a shock sensation in his body immediately after his encounter with the purported customer and then touched his manhood, only to discover that it had disappeared.
He then screamed for help, pointing at the suspect, following which neighbours and passersby gathered and gave the suspect a the beating of his life.
One eyewitness said that the suspect consequently confessed to the crime following the thorough beating, and restored the shop owner’s manhood.
Periscope International gathered that similar incidents have reportedly occurred in Karaworo and Ganaja areas in the State capital, with all the suspects receiving mob actions and confessing to the crime.
For instance, in the Adankolo area of Lokoja, a boy selling doughnuts was said to have screamed after the disappearance of his manhood after being paid by a man who bought doughnuts from him.
However, in his own case, the suspect man could not be found after the incident to restore the boy’s diabolically stolen manhood.
Also, at Ganaja Village, a passenger cried out after being touched by a fellow passenger in a Tricycle, culminating in the sudden shock and disappearance of his manhood. The suspect was beaten blue and black but refused to accept responsibility for the alleged crime.
Again, two suspects are said to be in the custody of the ‘A’ Division of the Nigeria Police, Lokoja, after being almost lynched by a mob around Old Market area for for allegedly harvesting the manhood of a man.
SP William Aya, Police Public Relations Officer, Kogi Command, who confirmed the incidents, that said the Police had received the reports and investigations were ongoing.
Aya however cautioned the public against taking the law into their own hands, warning that once there was such allegations, the people should report to the Police to enable them to conduct a thorough investigation into such allegation.
Meanwhile, in the Federal Capital, Abuja, a young boy who owns a kiosk, where he sells soft drinks and some other provisions accused a man of stealing his penis after the suspect allegedly touched him.
The shop owner alleged that the suspect had pretentiously come to buy a bottle of Coke and some bread from him.
“He told me to give him coke and bread but he said that he did not have money.
“Once he touched me, I felt my penis fell flat, nothing was there again,” he told newsmen.
The situation had attracted an angry mob that manhandled the suspect while insisting that he returned the alleged missing penis.
It was gathered that when the mob increased in number, holding different dangerous objects, the suspect, who initially insisted that he was innocent, subsequently confessed to the crime.
The mob then first forced the suspect to twice cross over the victim who laid flat on the floor under duress but the victim’s penis failed to be restored.
The victim returned after 15 minutes with a disappointing look, and this led to the mob battering the accused.
It took the intervention of police operatives, who arrived the scene of the incident and led both the accused and the victim away to the Wuse Magistrate Court to save the suspect from the wrath of the red-eyed mob.
Sources said that similar cases have taken place in parts of Abuja, such as Kuje, Gwagwalada, Bwari and Mpape, among others.
It was also gathered that incidents of manhood stealing are occurring by the day across the country with similar cases being reported from other major cities like Lagos, Port Harcourt, Kaduna, Enugu, among others.
