A 19-year-old man, Sunday Owo, was on Thursday arrested with fresh human parts at a healing home in Awka, Anambra State.
Owo was caught with fresh male genital, human fingers and a bottle filled with the blood of a child.
The suspect told journalists that he hailed from Ohaukwu Local Government Area of Ebonyi state and was directed by one Blessing to procure the human parts and bring to a natural healing home in Awka for money ritual.
He confessed that he paid Blessing, who was at-large as at press time, the sum of N50,000 for connecting him to the healing home.
Owo told journalists that his victim was a four-year-old boy he killed at the stream in his town and threw the head and other parts into the stream.
“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.
“Her name is blessing, she is also from Ebonyi state, but she said we can’t get these parts here so we went back to Ebonyi State here I got it and brought it here, I don’t know where Blessing is now.
“I paid her N50, 000 for linking me up,” he said.
But Mrs Ifeanyichukwu Ilonzo, owner of Centre for Psychic Healing and Administration (CEPHA), Awka, said she had to invite the media and the police on seeing such strange thing.
Ilonzo said she and her staff were on ward-round after morning prayers when they saw the man with the human parts who said he was looking for her as he has brought the items.
She said when the content of the black bag was opened, she instructed her staff not to let him go and invited security agencies and the media to witness what she saw.
She said one Blessing Eze had come for healing of fibroid and that she gave her prescription after which she left but had not returned.
She said the Eze in question, whose consultation card she produced, used Ifite-Awka as her address.
Ilonzo stated that she suspected frame-up by people who wished to undo her as she has had such attempts in the past, including failed efforts to take her life.
She urged the Police to identify the owners of the child that was murdered and the Blessing that was working as his accomplice, adding that human life was sacred.
SP Haruna, the Police Public Relations Officer of the command, said the suspect has been arrested, and would come up with the position of the police on the matter later.
