Native doctor, three others arrested for exhuming corpses in Catholic cemetery in Enugu

A native doctor has been arrested for exhuming human parts from tombs inside a Catholic cemetery at Ajaba Mmaku, in the Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State.

According to reports on Saturday, December 10, 2022, the native doctor was arrested along with three other accomplices in the community.

The suspects were said to have been caught harvesting human parts in the cemetery by a man in charge of the bakery section within the church premises.

The suspects after noticing that the baker had seen them, quickly made some promises to him to conceal the information, who agreed for fear of his life.

However, when they left him he went back and informed the priest in-charge of the church.

Community sources said that the suspects, on sighting the priest and some people, took to their heels.

“Because the Neighbourhood Watch (local vigilantes) of Mmaku had been alerted, so they gave a hot chase arrested three and one escaped.

“Those arrested include Aloysius Okeke (aka Aloy Ojoma), Israel Okoli, and Amaechi Udeji, all from Enugu Afam Village in Agunese Mmaku Autonomous Community.”

Meanwhile, the source said that manhunt for the fleeing suspect had been intensified, adding that business of getting human parts for ritual purposes had been on for some time in the community and neighbouring communities.

Efforts to get reaction of the Enugu State Police Public Relations Officer DSP Daniel Ndukwe were unsuccessful as he did not answer his calls at the time of filing this report.

It is, however, yet to be established whether the suspects had been handed over to the police or not.
