A serial killer, who murders innocent people for money and mystic powers, has been nabbed in Benue state.
Iorwuese Kpila, a thirty-year-old alleged Benue serial killer and kidnap kingpin, said he killed his victims for money and mystic powers, The Nation reports.
The suspect disclosed this Friday when he was paraded before news men alongside other members of his gang by state Commissioner of Police Mukaddas Garba.
The suspects who are seven in number explained how they used to lure their victims who are mostly Okada riders and before killing them.
“We will tell Okada riders to drop us at a certain location and immediately we reach there I and my gang members will grabbed the victim and strangulate him with a rope, dig a grave, burry him and plant cassava on top of the grave, thereafter we sell the machine to a buyer,” Kpila said.
He said he had been killing for rituals, money and mystical power, adding that that “the ‘Queen’ who is a spirit told him to kill about 18 persons before he will have powers to appear and disappear.”
Even though he claimed to have operated in Ushongo for three months, but bodies exhumed seems to have been buried for more than a year.
Benue State Commissioner of Police Mukaddas Garba said investigation is still on but so far seven suspects have been so far arrested.
The Police commissioner appealed to members of the public to support the police by giving information about criminals and their activities.
