A 10-year-old girl has been tragically killed by suspected ritualists in Guyaba village of the Kirfi Local Government Area of Bauchi State.
According to village sources, her parents declared the victim missing for a few days before she was found dead, with some of her body parts missing.
However, details are still sketchy on how the victim was killed as of the time of writing this report.
Confirming the incident to DAILY POST on Sunday, the spokesman of the state police command, SP Ahmed Wakili, said the Commissioner, CP Auwal Musa, has ordered an investigation into the gruesome killing of the little girl.
He said, “The CP, Auwal Musa Muhammad, has directed the DPO, Kirfi Police Division, to investigate and unravel the circumstance of her death, arrest and prosecute the perpetrators of the dastardly act. So the investigation is ongoing.”
The state’s First Lady, Aisha Bala Muhammad, has visited the victim’s parents.
She charged traditional rulers, faith-based bodies, and security agencies to fish out the culprits.
The latest killing comes two months after suspected ritualists killed a toddler, a one-half-year-old boy, Mohammed Abideen Musa, who was found dead with his vital organs missing in a school at Games Village in the Bauchi metropolis.
