A middle-aged man, David Magaji and a witch doctor are in the police net in Nasarawa State following their alleged involvement in the death of a woman, Cecilia Magaji. She was the wife of the first suspect, David.
A source said on June 16, Cecilia attempted to reconcile with her husband by going to her matrimonial home. They had been separated for about 20 years.
The source said the deceased’s family became worried when she failed to return after three days.
The Nation learnt that the family contacted the deceased’s husband on the phone, and he assured them that she would soon return home.
The Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Nasarawa State Command, Cornelius Ocholi, who confirmed the arrest of the men, said the woman was allegedly invited by her husband for reconciliation, but she did not return home after several days.
He said the deceased’s brother, Pastor Emmanuel Ayede, lodged a complaint about the missing woman and the police swung into action. Her body was found some days later in a shallow grave, under a tree, on Tudun Ambassador Road, Lafia with some of the parts missing. He said they suspected ritual killing.
Ocholi said the body of the mother of four-two boys and two girls has been deposited at the mortuary of Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital, Lafia, and investigation is on to unravel the mystery behind her death.
