Italian criminologist: Nigerian mafia ate murder victim’s heart

An Italian psychiatrist, surgeon, and criminologist Alessandro Meluzzi believes that the murder of a young white girl that made the headlines recently, was tied to the Nigerian mafia. Meluzzi says they frequently eat body parts of their victims.

    The 18-year-old Pamela Mastropietro whose dismembered body was found in two suitcases on the last day of January, had fallen victim to the very dangerous and ruthless Nigerian mafia, Meluzzi believes.

    “The Nigerian Mafia, the most ruthless mafia in the world killed Pamela. And its sects are colonizing Italy and stealing business from the traditional Mafia families,” he said during an interview given to ItaliaOggi and then reported on Libero.

    Meluzzi added: “What we have seen in Pamela’s case is the same methods the Nigerian Mafia systematically applies in Nigeria and elsewhere” […] “it is a routine to cut victims into pieces and in some cases, to eat parts of their bodies”.

    Pamela’s mutilated body was found in two trolleys, but her neck and genitals were missing. The body was deboned and washed in bleach in order to hide and remove any forensic traces.

    Notably, her heart was also missing. Meluzzi said he was not surprised and explained that “child soldiers in Sierra Leone ate human hearts as a rite of passage in order to gain courage. Ritual cannibalism, in the Nigerian Mafia, is not an exception, but a rule. These are normal things for them, but here nobody talks about it, out of fear of being called ‘racist’. We should get used to these things: this is just the tip of an iceberg destined to grow larger”.

    Last year, literally hundreds of Africans in the Amangwe area in a northern province of South Africa, casually confessed to eating human remains.

    The story was never reported in the mainstream media. Instead “experts” tried to minimize the damage wreaked by the shocking revelations by saying that “traditional healers” and Africans only “rarely” become involved in cannibalism.

    The 32-year-old Nino Mbatha, one of four people arrested, was formally an nyanga  or witch doctor practicing in the town of Ladysmith. He had distributed the human remains for their “healing powers” to hundreds of Africans.

    At a community meeting held in Amangwe, over 700 people gathered to be questioned by a local councillor, and 300 of them admitted visiting Mbatha while knowing he would be giving them human flesh to eat as muti , or “traditional medicine”.

    The South African Provincial Occult Related Crime Unit investigated the case, one of hundreds such cases.

    Muti, is a term used to describe African medicine and cultural practice on the continent. So-called muti killings have occurred in various countries, where people are murdered and their body parts used in purported “medicines” by witch doctors.

    Africans suffering from albinism are particularly at risk of muti killings due to the belief held by some that their body parts impart power and health to those who consume them.

    The family of a 25-year-old woman who had gone missing in July 2017, had expressed the fear that she had been a victim of a cannibalism.

    Her decomposing body was eventually found after a black man who claimed to be a witch doctor handed himself over to police and confessed that he had become “tired of eating human flesh”.

    Police officers had initially dismissed his statement, the BBC reported.

    It is only after he produced a bloodied hand and foot as proof that he was arrested. He led police officers to his home, where they found eight human ears in a cooking pot.

    • Africans are not our kind, and must be expelled, along with those who enable their invasion to the first world.

      Europeans must “own” our racism, it’s a survival mechanism, and there’s nothing shameful in it. Racism’s pre-judgement (prejudice) of the “other” enabled quick assessment of how close strangers should be allowed to approach. Guess wrong, and the tribe did not live to guess again.

      • I thought all humans have African origins? They are our ‘kind’ that you dont realize that is your denial, it makes it easier to process what humans are capable of / And yet, these people are nothing, in terms of needless human suffering. NATO’s war machine alone is worse by a factor of millions of innocent lives destroyed. Not to mention what we have done and continue to do to Africa./
