The Delta State Police Command has on Sunday debunked reports of the command apprehending suspects selling human parts as suya in Ogwashi-Uku, Aniocha South Local Government Area of the state.
Naija News recalls that a video had earlier surfaced on social media indicating that a suspect was arrested with a wheelbarrow load of human parts at Ogwashi-Uku with a voice that the suspect was selling his pieces of staked ‘suya’ meat for N100.00.
The voice added that on a good bargain, he could dispose of two sticks of the roasted meat for N150.00 but consumers never knew that they were consuming human meat.
However, reacting to the viral video, the State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, DSP Bright Edafe, said the command had not arrested anybody in possession of human parts.
Edafe, who stated this while speaking to Vanguard, explained that what the police evacuated was a victim of a hit-and-run driver, explaining that the body of the unidentified victim was totally shattered.
