The spokesman of the command, DSP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, said they arrested the suspect after Sani, who earlier went to the native doctor for medication, reported the matter to them.

Kiyawa said, “After Sani went to the native doctor for medication, he then prescribed something for him and ordered that he mixed it with his urine and bathe with it for three days.

“Upon his return after the three days, the doctor again gave him some water to use, and later asked him to bring a new born baby from his relatives whose left eye would be used for ritual.

“This was what prompted him to meet his elder sister pleading with her to sacrifice her son for the ritual which he said was been prepared allegedly for a soldier.

“It was at that point that the sister became worried and took Sani to the police station where they reported the native doctor,” Kiyawa said.

The PPRO said the police, upon receiving the complaint arrested the native doctor in Hotoro.

He said they were also able to recover a coffin, calabash with some ritual inscriptions on it and other ritual materials during his arrest.

Kiyawa said the state Commissioner of Police, Habu Sani, has ordered the case to be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation.
