Police Nab Isaac Ezekiel for Removing Uzairu Salisu’s eyeballs in Bauchi
In furtherance of our commitment to steaming down crime and criminality, the command has made adequate use of intelligence gathering towards continuous maintenance of law and order and this has yielded positively.
In a related development, sequel to the case of a suspected ritualist who plucked the eye of a minor, during the terrifying incident which occurred in the Jira Mountain Yelwa area of Bauchi Metropolitan, the suspect Isaac Ezekiel ‘m’ 32yrs of Rafin Zurfi Yelwa Bauchi Metropolitan has been arrested, where he voluntarily confessed to the unfortunate crime.
A prompt search of his house by the Police led to the recovery of Uzairu Salisu’s eyeballs.
Exhibit recovered from the suspect
1. The two human eyeballs in a calabash
2. Cable wire used in perpetrating the heinous act
3. Travelling bag containing some native medicine
Suspects arrested in connection to the crime;
1. Isaac Ezekiel ‘M’ 32yr-old of Rafin Zurfi Yelwa Bauchi Metropolitan.
2. Nensok Bawa ‘M’ 38yr-old of Kabwir District Kanke Local Government Area Plateau State.
3. Yohana Luka (AKA Doctor Samu) 52yr-old of Golbong Village Amper District in Kanke Local Government Area of Plateau State.
Findings reveal that in April 2022, Principal Suspect Isaac Ezekiel conspired with the two suspects above to conceive the idea to commit the atrocity of getting the eyeballs of a human being.
On 24th June 2022 at about 0900hrs the principal suspect Isaac Ezekiel lured one Uzairu Salisu ‘M’ 16yr of Jahun Bauchi Metropolitan into a nearby Bush for a casual job on his farm, the Isaac Ezekiel used a cable wire to strangulate Uzairu Salisu into a coma and use a knife to remove the two eyes for a ritual purpose.
Investigation is in progress, after which the suspects will be charged to court.
The task has not been an easy one, but in line with our constitutional mandate, we shall remain fierce, tireless, and relentless in committing ourselves to the safety and security of lives and property of the people of Bauchi state and the country at large.
CP Umar Sanda reassures commitment as the Command burst ritualist, tackled crime, and urged residents to be supportive.
