The report of three boys caught burning a human head in Ogun state has generated reactions from Nigerians who were surprised and bothered by the increase in the number of suspected teenage ritualists.
The three boys according to a Twitter user, @Letter_to_Jack, were “17, 19 and 20 years old” and were “caught in Abeokuta around 3am this morning while they were burning a fresh human head (female) in a local pot in an uncompleted building for Rituals. The victim was identified as one Rofiat, a GF of one of the perpetrators.
“They lured Rofiat into their house, broke her neck and cut her head off with a machete. The videos are too gruesome to post here. They left Rofiat’s lifeless body in their room with blood all over, locked the door and proceeded to an uncompleted building to burn the head.
“This tragedy happened at Oke-Aregba in Abeokuta THIS MORNING, Saturday, 29th January 2022. A local Vigilante perceived the smell coming from the uncompleted building, when he got to where the smell was coming from, he saw that they were roasting a human head. My God!”.
Reacting, @Ikesmarto said; “At 17 I was writing waec o. Only yahoo.com I know that time despite having Nokia browsing phone since I was in jss3.”
@inkredible_h: “At 17 my biggest crime was joining people that didn’t pay school fees to chased out of school. Then join them at Markstop game center in Brown road. Aguda What the hell is wrong with these people“
@leumas_mahni_og: “Omo Markstop for Aguda and Ijesha for sanusi.. I make money for Ps2 that year sha. …. Even at 17/18 na to dey jump tutorials like “Concept and hybrid etc” to dey find Wetin no lost lol”
Some Nigerians however give their pieces of advice on how the menace can be curtailed.
@Archtwitz: “When majority of other youths they see as role módels are into Yahoo thro rituals to make money that’s what the society gets. If the society was to be full of youths gainfully employed through govt holistic initiative, their thinking would have been geared towards that direction”.
@Olivermzia: “The Govt can fight this pandemic by ordering Nollywood to ban movies that has “blood money or human rituals” in it. I believe Nollywood in the late 19s started instigating this nonsense into the minds of the masses. Before Nollywood came into play, nobody knew this nonsense”.
