Uncle Kills 7-Year-Old Male Twins For Rituals In Delta
An uncle is on the run after killing 7-year-old twins for rituals in Delta state.
The 7-year-old male twins went missing only for their disemembered bodies to be found in a bush after their uncle, Onuwa Oliseh, lured them into the bush within the neighbourhood and killed them on Friday, March 6.
According to reports, the incident happened after they returned from school. He was said to have removed some of their body parts for money rituals and dumped the remains.
Investigation by operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team in the state led to the arrest of Onuwa’s accomplice, Kelvin Uzor, who is also a relation of the twins.
“Police got information that on March 6, the twins were missing from their parents’ house. Their bodies were later found in the bush on March 8 with some parts of their bodies mutilated. Their eyes, hands and private parts were missing. Police began investigation and generated enough intelligence that led to the arrest of Uzor. He confessed that they were a three-man gang and wanted to do money ritual with the body parts,” a senior officer said.
18-year-old Uzor, in his statement, admitted the twins were killed for rituals but denied partaking in their murder. Uzor revealed further that the initial plan was to use an elderly woman in the community for the money ritual but he prevailed on the gang to spare the woman because she was generous.
The remains of the twins had been deposited at the General Hospital, Igbuzor while IRT detectives led by DCP Abba Kyari had launched a manhunt for their uncle.
