A suspected ritualist has been arrested after he abducted a three-year-old girl and inserted a stick into her private part.
It was gathered that that satanic incident happened on Tuesday, February 28, 2016, when the suspect sneaked into the children's playground and kidnapped the girl and took her into the bush where he assaulted her, causing damages to her vagina.
He was however apprehended when the girl's playmates raised an alarm leading the community youths to mobilise and comb the forest where he was arrested before he could cause untold damages to the toddler.
The suspect was then handed over to the police at Ikang Police Division, while the girl was rushed to the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital (UCTH), where emergency surgeries were conducted on her.
Uche Okoro, a medical worker at the UCTH who volunteered to pay part of the medical expenses, revealed that the baby was brought to the hospital in critical condition.
“The incident happened at Ikang in Bakassi LGA. The three-year-old girl was brought to the UCTH in a critical condition. She was said to have been abducted by a suspected ritual killer and taken to the bush.
Another girl that was with her when the incident happened immediately raised the alarm and a search party went to look for the little girl. She was found in the bush and the suspect was apprehended.
Meanwhile, another one-year-old baby was found dead not too far from where the girl was rescued. The girl was already bleeding profusely because she had machete cut and a wood was forced into her vagina. It was learnt that the suspect was handed over to the police while the child was brought to us for treatment."
