A 16- year-old teenaged girl, simply identified as Amina Abdukadir has been killed by suspected ritualists in Minna, the capital of Niger State.
The badly mutilated body of the deceased was found in an uncompleted building yesterday at New Market area in the metropolis.
It was learnt that the shop owners immediately reported the incident at the Central Police division, Minna.
An eye witness’s account disclosed that parts of the girl’s body were mutilated, while a police source said that it was a violent killing and could not be ascertained if it was for ritual purposes.
The Niger State command, police public relations officer, Richard Adamu Oguche, who confirmed the incident, said that the uncle of the girl, Abdulkadir, identified the body of the deceased.
He said it was a violent killing, saying that no part of the body was tempered with. He, however, said that the police is on top of the situation and that investigation is on to get those responsible for the dastardly act.
