The police and vigilante group in Ogwashi-Uku, Aniocha Sur Local Government Area, Delta State, captured two children with a coffin of pants and female bras.
The suspects, who were detained in the community’s Agidiehe neighborhoods around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday night, a reliable source told reporters, were intercepted by members of the self-defense groups, before the police were invited.
The source said that women and youth in the neighborhood expressed anger at the activities of children suspected of being “Yahoo kids” (Internet scammers).
According to the source, “The crowd would have harassed the children were it not for the intervention of the police.
“Where did they get the pants and other feminine items in the coffin? The law must run its course to deter others. “
Confirming the arrest, the state police public relations officer, DSP Onome Onowakpoyeya, said that the children were in possession of the coffin for alleged ritual purposes.
Onowakpoyeya said women’s pants, bras and other items were seen in the coffin when the suspects were forced to open it.
He added that the Command had intensified the investigation into the matter.
