An indegine, Egobudike Okafor, said,” we are still in shock over the sad development. What would that man be doing with disected human flesh. The meat is that of a full human being, meaning that it was not for ritual purpose, but for suya . It is either the man is using it for suya or supplying someone preparing Suya.
” As for me and my family, we won’t ever eat suya again. I am warning my people to stop eating Suya. For crying out loud, what would a young man be doing with a full human meat ? The Police have arrested him, but they should not sweep the case under the carpet, because we want to know where he killed the person , who the victim is ,and for what purpose”.
John Nwaizu, said the man was seen very early in the morning in a suspicious manner and a police patrol team was contacted; the police arrived on time and picked the man. What they discovered with the man is like the eye seeing the ear; it was human flesh in a wheelbarrow. We are thinking that the human flesh was for suya. We have told our people to stop eating suya for the mean time. We are appealing to the police to fish out the syndicate and to reveal the identity of the person that was killed and disected like a goat”.
A Policeman who spoke on the condition of anonymity as he was not supposed to speak with the press, said, ” our men are interrogating the man. According to the man, he picked the body from the road. He claimed that the deceased was killed by a hit and run driver. But the questions are : why did he pick the body; where was he taking it to and for what purpose? These are the questions we have to ask him and I believe that my colleagues are doing wonderfully well in their interrogation. In due time, we shall let you know our findings. Some are claiming that he was using it for suya or supplying suya sellers, we shall soon answer all the questions and allegations raised “.
