The Nigeria Police operatives from Zone 7, Abuja, on Wednesday, April 5, 2023, apprehended three suspects, one Uluko Adukwu (M), 28 yrs, one Salisu Aduh “M”, 38 yrs and Adams Halilu ‘M’ 24 yrs together with two small boys of ages 11 and 13 suspected to be their victims, about 1600hrs, based on intelligence along the Jikwoyi, Orozo and Karshi area of the FCT.
The three suspects all from Kogi State and residents of Abuja confessed to having been involved in using charms to defraud people, especially giving charms to cybercrime and internet fraudsters popularly referred to in Nigeria as Yahoo Plus.
According to the suspects, these yahoo plus boys in turn use the charm on their victims, which sometimes results in the death of some of the victims in order to achieve their aim and get whatever they want from their victims.
A statement signed by the Zone 7 PRO SP Istifanus Sunday Bako emphasised that during the operation, three empty caskets, one Toyota Prado Jeep, one Lexus 330 Car, and fifteen mobile phones were recovered from the suspects; some clothing and women’s underwear believed to have belonged to the dead victims were also found at the scene of the crime.
The Zone 7 AIG, Kayode Egbetokun (now DIG Kayode Egbetokun), encourages worshippers to be careful where they worship and report suspicious activities to the police as on his last day in office busted the ritualists gang.
