5-Year-Old Boy Beheaded In Nasarawa

The Nasarawa State Police Command has confirmed the beheading of a five year old boy by unknown assailants in Shabu Lafia LGA of the state.

The headless body was dumped in an uncompleted building, according to Ken­nedy Idirisu, the state police spokesperson.

DSP Idirisu told news­men on Tuesday in Lafia that the headless body of Meshach, son of one John Ona, was discovered on Monday. He said the police had begun investigation into the case.

Mr. Idirisu called on par­ents to properly watch over their children and wards.

A relative of the boy, Mary Adogo, said that the child went to excrete on Monday and never returned.

Ms. Adogo, Meshach’s aunt, said the boy was with his mother and other sib­lings before he went to ex­crete.

“After about an hour of not seeing him, the moth­er raised an alarm which prompted the family and neighbours to commence a search for him.

“It was in the process of the search that we found the headless body in an un­completed four bedroom flat not too far away from their residence,” Ms. Adogo said.

She said the family was able to recognise the de­ceased by his shirt and size since the perpetrators of the crime took away his head.
