He said; “It was on Sunday that it happened. Her mother sent her to go and make her head. Later, it was discovered that the girl was missing and they searched the whole area to no avail. It was on Monday morning that they saw her body parts scattered inside a newly demolished church just close to their residence. We suspected that the girl was drugged because a bottle of Bobo drink was discovered at the scene.

He said: “This place, before it was demolished, was serving as a shrine but the owners pretended that it was a church. They were doing many fetish things. The place was demolished recently because the owner of the land sold it. The girl is an Hausa girl. They scattered her body parts we have discovered some, while we are yet to see others.”
