CONFESSION: We Kill And Sell Human Body Parts - Suspects

The Police Command in Plateau on Monday arrested two men for allegedly killing a nine-year-old girl, Ummi Abdullahi.
The command said the suspects were also alleged to have sold the girl’s parts to another person for N400, 000.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Chris Olakpe, who briefed journalists in Jos, said the suspects got late Ummi on her way to buy massa, a local food, for her father, Abdullahi Umar.
“On November 14, one Mr. Abdullahi Umar of Dauda Area, Nasarawa Gwong, reported at the Nasarawa Gwong Police Station that his daughter was missing.
“The next day the corpse of late Ummi Abdullahi was found at the back of an uncompleted building in Fillin Sukuwa area, Jos, with her mouth, tongue and private part removed.’’
The commissioner said that when the woman selling the food was invited by the police, she fingered one Auwalu Sani.
“The police later arrested Sani and during interrogation, he confessed to have conspired with one Nafiu Usman to sell the girl to one Alhaji Aminu Sale at of N400, 000.”
Olakpe said the suspects confessed that they had earlier sold one Hajara Abubakar, 12, to the same person, who paid them N300, 000.
“The evidence of the suspects against Alhaji Aminu Sale is overwhelming and he is also in our net,’’ he added.
He said the police had also arrested two women, Mrs. Chundun Jugu and Mrs. Elizabeth Zakari, both of Angwan Takai in the Bokkos Local Government Area, for conspiring to steal a one-week-old child.
Olakpe said the suspects deceived the mother of the boy, Mrs. Zainab Zakari, while on admission at Godiya Clinic, Bokkos, after she delivered her child through caesarian.
“The women deceived the mother that the wife of the Plateau Governor was visiting Bokkos to provide assistance to women that delivered babies through caesarian.
“They took away the baby to an unknown destination but were later arrested in Bukuru, Jos South Local Government,’’ the News Agency of Nigeria quoted the police commissioner as saying to journalists.
Olakpe said that Chindun had earlier deceived her husband that she was seven months pregnant, adding that she stole the child to show her husband that she had delivered.
