A man said to be involved in digging out dead bodies from their graves and using the parts for ritual purposes, has been nabbed.

A 37-year-old man, Danbaba Umar, has been arrested by the Police Command in Kaoje, Bagudo Local Government Area of Kebbi State, for specialising in exhuming corpses from graves for ritual purposes.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Ibrahim Kabiru, told newsmen in Birnin Kebbi on Thursday that the arrest of the suspect followed a tip-off.

He said Umar was arrested at about 3:30 a.m. at the Kaoje graveyard while attempting to exhume a male corpse for ritual purposes.

He said the suspect confessed to the crime and revealed that he was sent to commit the act by one, Malam Muhammadu from Sokoto State.

A father of ten, the suspect told newsmen that he was a professional driver who was transporting wood planks from Zaria to Sokoto for sale prior to his recruitment for the criminal act.

Umar said inadequate money to cater for his family compelled him to engage in the crime.
