Human Eaters In Lagos Attacked By Angry Mob
There was drama yesterday when an angry mob stri*ped
unclad two men, Alaba Abiodun and Samuel, who were
allegedly eating human flesh,but they were lucky as the timely
arrival of policemen who saved them from being set ablaze.
This is how PM news reported
Earlier, a passer-by along the rail line in Ikeja saw three men
in tattered dresses. One of them was making a call and one
eating a meat suspected to be human flesh.
The passer-by raised an alarm that attracted the mob which
instantly pounced on the two suspect human part eaters. But
the one making the phone call managed to escape.
Their problem was compounded when the mob moved to their
hideout behind the Ikeja Local Government Secretariat fence
and found a cutlass, knife, charms and meat with fat which
the mob suspected to be human flesh.
When a detachment of policemen from Area ‘F’ arrived the
scene, Abiodun told them, that he was a carpenter but had no
money to set up a workshop.
Abiodun claimed to be from Akiniku in Moloney area of Ilaro,
Yewa, Ogun State, Southwest Nigeria. He added that he made
the hideout his residence as he could not afford to rent a
room for himself.
He explained that the meat discovered in their hideout was a
cow fat which they eat and not human parts.
After intensive questioning, the policemen were convinced
that the suspects were mistaken for human parts eaters and
sellers by the mob. They were later released.
Speaking with P.M.NEWS on the incident, a police officer who
preferred anonymity advised the public to investigate
suspected criminals before taking any action.
But for the timely intervention of the policemen, the officer
noted, the suspects would have been set ablaze.
