From JUDEX OKORO, Calabar Thursday, November 03, 2011

A rice dealer at Marian market and Etim Edem market, Mr. Kenneth Ubah, has been nabbed by the police for allegedly locking up a 13-year old banana hawker in a disused deep freezer in Chief Obot Close State Housing Estate Calabar.

Daily Sun investigations revealed that luck ran out on the trader when the brother of girl, he lured into his premises allegedly for ritual purposes raised the alarm, which prompted intervention by passersby and the police.
On getting wind of the incident, the Zone 6 Command dispatched a team of detectives to Mr. Kenneth Ubah’s residence and the girl was rescued from the claws of death.

A source told Daily Sun that Kenneth, along with others was working on his storey building, when he invited the girl into the premises on the pretext that he wanted to buy banana. The source revealed, “When the girl entered the premises he quickly locked the gate and grabbed the girl and bundled her into a disused fridge.”

A lady, who claims to come from Edo State, and does not want her name in print said, “when the girl did not come out of the premises after a long period, the little boy with whom they were hawking banana began to cry and one man that was passing asked the little boy why he was crying and he told the man that his sister with whom they were hawking went inside (pointing at the building) to sell banana and has since not come out.”
The lady, insisting that she was present when the incident happened said, “the man went to the gate and knocked several times but Kenneth refused to open the gate raising the man’s suspicion as to what might have happened to the girl.”

The man reportedly mobilised others and they forced the gate open.
“When the gate was forced open Kenneth was standing beside the fridge barking like a dog while the girl’s banana tray was lying some yards away and when the people asked where the girl was, he said he did not know.
“When the people asked what was inside the fridge, the Enugu State-born trader said it was his dog. When they asked him to open the fridge, he threatened that if the dog escaped, he would hold them responsible. When the fridge was eventually opened, they saw the girl inside.”

Reacting, Mr. Jeremiah Adim of Zone Six Public Relation officer said the suspect is receiving treatment in an undisclosed police Clinic after receiving serious beating from angry mob.

The govt need to implement extremely stiff laws on these ppl, but they likely wont because they probably got as far as they did on rituals.  These ritualists are a pestilence on the land.
