CANNIBAL!Man with 3 human heads says ‘I eat human meat out of frustration’


The police in Sokoto have arrested a middle-aged man, Aliyu Adamu, for being in procession of three human heads at Takakume Village, in Goronyo Local Government Area of the State.

The police in Sokoto have arrested a middle-aged man, Aliyu Adamu, for being in procession of three human heads at Takakume Village, in Goronyo Local Government Area of the State.

Confirming Adamu’s arrest at the weekend, the police image-maker, ASP Muhammed Abubakar said the suspect was arrested following a tip off by some residents.

According to ASP Abubakar, Adamu owned up to the crime, adding that in the past one year, human meat had in fact formed part of his favourite meals.

How does he source his consignment? Adamu told police detectives that he exhumed bodies from their graves at the Takakume village cemetery.

Curiously, his mental recollection was vivid as he further told how he used to be a fish merchant in Nasarawa but decided to return to Sokoto when his business flopped.
However, Adamu attributed his present troubles to frustration, adding that he started eating human flesh as a result of poverty.

Sunday Sun learnt that Adamu had a bizarre modus operandi. For instance, any time he dug out a body and discovered that it was that of an infant, he took away the entire carcass. But if it turned out to be an adult, he simply severed the head only.
It was gathered that when his immediate family, including his mother, discovered his despicable life style, they disserted the family house, leaving him alone.

At Adamu’s house in Takakume village, Sunday Sun was shown a room where he allegedly kept the fabrics with which he wrapped the exhumed bodies.
At the Takakume village cemetery, detectives counted nine graves believed to have been emptied by Adamu.

One of Adamu’s neighbours described him as a quite man who was in the habit of keeping to himself. "Even when you greet him," the neighbour said, "he would not respond. You would always find him calm and sober, with his palms on his chin."
The Police Public Relations Officer said the suspect would be charged to court as soon as investigations were concluded.
