Gabriel Volts, a 33-year-old father from Delta State, has been arrested for reportedly decapitating his kid for ritualistic purposes.
According to DSP Bright Edafe, the state police command’s spokesman, the suspect kidnapped his son from his wife and then used a hand saw to cut off the boy’s head in the Etinabobo bush in Edo state.
“The Delta State Police Command has arrested Gabriel Volts, 33, for reportedly decapitating his son for ceremonial purposes. The suspect used a hand saw to decapitate and bury his one-year-and-eight-month-old baby at Etinabobo bush in Edo state for ritualistic purposes.
The defendant was detained when the child went missing, and he lied to the wife that the child was with his sister in Warri, which turned out to be false. This made the wife suspicious, and she subsequently contacted the police. Suspect has admitted to committing the claimed crime.
