Ritual killings reach the shores of Europe

Kidnapping and ritual killing appears to be on the increase in Nigeria, the Guardian, a Nigerian daily, reported. And it has reached the shores of Europe.

    “Another way to express this is that there are more reports of abductions for ritual killings these days than we used to have them, the paper noted in an editorial towards the end of last year. “In Nigeria, some very powerful people have benefitted from the inhumane practice,” the editorialist concluded.

    The Red Cross has received reports of 10 480 missing persons in Nigeria, while every day more reports about ritualists’ dens where cannibalism is happening, surface in Nigeria.

    While mainstream outlets can be controlled not to report the incidents to give a good albeit false image of security regarding Nigerian culture, reports in social media are rife.

    The latter presents gory pictures of dismembered bodies, with the most recent being that of a top honours African undergraduate at the University of Port Harcourt who butchered a neighbour’s seven year old daughter in a ritual, removed parts of her body and attempted to dispose of the body in a garbage heap.

    The horror of African ritual murder was exposed recently by Alessandro Meluzzi, an Italian psychiatrist, writer, politician, and academic.

    Meluzzi described the role that ritual cannibalism played in the murder of Pamela Mastropietro, who was allegedly killed and dismembered by Innocent Oseghale, a Nigerian immigrant who had remained in the country after his residence permit had expired.

    Three other Nigerian immigrants have also been arrested in connection with the case.

    Meluzzi explained in detail how the horrific practices of the Nigerian mafias, have displaced the criminality of the traditional mafias in Italy to Radio Padania Libera, the official radio station of the Lega Nord, in an interview on February 16, 2018.

    There have been increased reports of mutilated bodies found in different parts of Nigeria’s capital Lagos and around the country. In some cases the head, breast, the eyes, parts of the vagina, and limbs are severed. Some ritualists, called babalawos in Nigeria, believe they require human parts to make paying clients rich or powerful.

    In the case of Pamela Mastropietro, the Italian girl murdered and quite probably partly eaten by the Nigerian mafia, the epithelial and subcutaneous tissues of the torso were removed and not found in the suitcases.

    Parts of the neck were missing as well as the pubis and the epithelial tissue of the genitals, and anal apparatus. The breasts and mons pubis were mutilated.

    Pamela’s mother gave a statement to Il Tempo, a daily Roman newspaper saying: “They deceived her into going into that house. They raped her and tried to get her into prostitution. She rebelled and they killed her.”

    Meluzzi believes Italian anti-mafia judges are too scared to go after the Black Axe – the name of the Nigerian mafia – because they do not want to appear “racist”.
