Punch reports that the suspect was working as a security guard with the  Nnewi Anglican diocese at its proposed university site at Ozubulu.

According to the reports, the suspect allegedly used the facility to sell and supply human parts to eaters and ritualists.

When reached, the administrative secretary of Diocese of Nnewi Anglican Communion, owners of the higher institution the suspect allegedly guarded, Ven. Dr. Godwin Agba, however, denied that the suspect was employed at their facility.

A source said, “An eyewitnesses said the suspect whose name was not given was seen by hunters during a hunting expedition who had no premonition that a human killer was in the bush.

“The hunters were in the bush with their two dogs which went ahead of them, only to come back to inform their owners with signs they interpreted to mean that there was an unusual discovery.

“When the hunters followed the dogs to a particular point in the bush,  they were startled to see fresh dismembered human body including the legs, hands, and head without the ears as well as clothes suspected to belong to victims spread on a tree.

“The hunters including one Mr. Paul and Chimezie were said to have rushed back home to contact members of Ozubulu vigilance group who immediately followed them to the spot in the bush but could not see those human parts anymore.

“After a long search, a man was seen in the bush who happened to be a security man working at a higher institution under construction.

“He was confronted by a combined team of the hunters and vigilantes who arrested him in connection with the discovery”.

The source adds that the suspect was overpowered before he finally led them to the river bank where the human parts were hidden.

Punch reports that the suspect roasted the human parts for his customers who would show up in the forest late at night to buy the parts for rituals or for eating.

The remains of the victims found with the suspect has been deposited at the mortuary while the suspect has been handed over to the police.

The Anambra state commissioner of Police, Mr. Sam Okaula, has confirmed the arrest of the suspect.

However, he said that there was no evidence yet to suggest that the suspect was a seller of human parts.

He said, “ He is with us. Some human parts were found in his possession, and I think he is just a cannibal.”

The suspect will remain in police custody until further investigations into the case are completed.
