The young man, who said he hails from Ebonyi state, was caught with the flesh of the pubic region of the victim, including the penis and fingers. .
He also had with him, a bottle filled with the blood of his 4 years old victim. He claimed that he was asked, by one Blessing, to produce the human parts and bring to a natural healing home for money ritual. .
Owo further told newsmen that he paid the said Blessing, who is at-large, N50,000, for connecting her to the healing home. The murderer confessed that he killed the boy at a stream in his town and threw his head and other parts into it. .
“She brought me here two days ago and said that madam instructed her to tell me to bring these body parts, that I will have money,” he added.
Addressing newsmen, the owner of the healing centre, Dr. Mrs. Ifeanyichukwu Ilonzo, said she had to promptly invite the media and police on seeing the bloody parts as, according to her, such a thing had never happened before in her centre. .
“I was with my staff doing ward rounds after morning prayers when we saw the man and on questioning him, he said he was looking for me as he had brought the items,” Ilonzo said. .
“I was surprised because I have not seen the young man before nor had any discussion whatsoever with him,” she added.
Ilonzo said she suspected a foul play by people who wished to frame her, saying that such attempts had been made in the past, including a failed assassination attempt. .
She urged the police to identify the parents of the murdered child and the murder accomplice, Blessing.
