•As Zamfara police recover eyes, manhood removed from nine-year-old boy
A 57-year-old man, Aminu Baba, who was arrested for allegedly conniving with three others to kill a nine-year-old boy and remove his body parts, for which he paid N500,000, has said he enjoyed consuming human parts, with the throat as his special delicacy.
The startling revelation was made on Thursday, January 13, 2022, at the press briefing by the Commissioner of Police in Zamfara State Command, Ayuba Elkanah.
The police commissioner said that Aminu Baba was arrested with Abdulshakur Mohammed (20), Abdullahi Buba (17) and Ahmad Tukur (14).
According to Elkanah, one Ali Yakubu Aliyu had reported at Central Police Station, Gusau, on December 12, 2021, at about 2pm that his nine-year-old son, Ahmad Yakubu, was missing.
“On receiving the report, police detectives swung into action and commenced a discreet investigation into the matter.
“On 28th December, 2021 at about 0930hrs (9:30am), the police detectives received an intelligence report with regards to the earlier report that on same date at about 0900hrs (9am), a corpse was found in an uncompleted building at Barakallahu area Gusau, with its two hands and legs tied with rag and head covered with polythene bag.
“Detectives proceeded to the scene and found the corpse with some of the human parts removed, and later evacuated it to the hospital for autopsy.”
He stated further that on January 4, 2022, at about 2am, police detectives, acting on intelligence report, arrested the four suspects linked with the case.
During interrogation, one of the suspects, Abdulshakur Moh’d, confessed that the killing and dismemberment of the boy was the third time he was contracted by Aminu Baba to source for human parts at the sum of N500,000, and he was successful before his arrest.
He said that he planned with Abdullahi Baba and Ahmad Tukur, deceived the victim and took him to an uncompleted building where he killed him and removed his intestines, throat, manhood and two eyes.
He added that he took the human parts to Aminu Baba and was paid N500,000 as initially agreed on.
In his confession, Aminu Baba, a father of 19 children, disclosed that he usually ate the human parts and identified throat as the most delicious part. He also said that he used to sell some of the parts.
The Commissioner of Police said that the suspect’s revelations were assisting police investigation in arresting other members of his gang.
