stealing meat from a butcher’s shed at the popular Ogbete main market in
the state.Marketers at the abattoir section, located at Akwata side of the market,
before now, were said to have raised the alarm over the ‘mysterious’
disappearance of meat from their shed.
The incident happened on Saturday when the man was caught after stealing meat weighing over 22 pounds.
A Facebook user, Egwuatu Chukz, who shared the photos, said the Hausa
man casually strolled into the shed, brought out a sack and started
stuffing large chunks of meat into it, completely ignoring the fact that
there were other people around.
After loading the huge amount of meat inside the sack he came with, he
raised it on his head and started walking away with the meat. He was
said to have moved quite a distance ahead when one of the meat sellers
called him back, and tried to interrogate him.
The suspect refused to answer and this drew the attention of the crowd.
The crowd succeeded in stopping him and quizzing him on how he managed
to have access to the meat and he couldn’t give any reasonable answer to
Few minutes after he was caught, he was stripped naked and paraded and
some charms which he tied to his arm and leg were reportedly revealed.
Daily Post gathered that from his consequent lame confession after the
charms were exposed, he had been perpetrating the act for a long time
but he is usually invisible when performing the evil operations, with
the use of his charms.
He confessed that he had been involved in the act for quite some time
and during all his operations, he uses the charms to transform himself
into an invisible being.
But for the intervention of the police, the yet-to-be named suspect would have been lynched.
