NSCDC arrests three with human head in Niger


The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in Niger on Saturday paraded three suspects who were caught with a human head.
Mr Philip Ayuba, the Commandant of NSCDC in the state, told newsmen in Minna that the suspects were arrested in Mokwa Local Government Area of the state.
He said that the suspects aged 34, 35 and 24 hail from Ekpa village in Mokwa.
“I invited you here to see three suspects that we arrested on the ground of possession of a human head.
“After we arrested them, they confessed to us that they own the human head,’’ he said.
Ayuba said the suspects were arrested on Thursday while negotiating the sale of the head in Mokwa.
“Our personnel pretended to be bargaining with them on how much to pay before they were arrested,’’ he said.
The NSCDC boss said that the suspects had made confessional statements in writing, adding that they would be handed over to the police for further investigation and prosecution.
The principal suspect told journalists that his brother had invited him to his house to see the human head and assist in getting a buyer.
“I looked for a buyer for five months. So when I approached one Isah to buy the head he agreed and said that he has a buyer in Mokwa.
“When the buyer came we started negotiating the price with him and it was in that process that we were arrested,’’ he said.
Another suspect claimed that the head belonged to a decomposing female corpse which was found during a hunting expedition.
He said that he and another accomplice decided to cut off the head and sell it to make money.
“Two of us decided in the bush that we will sell the head to scientists and make money,’’ he said.

I decided to do this quick recount before it becomes over taking by event…ehm, before I forget to do so. No time to read over for errors. I'm serving it fresh and hot. On this fateful day, I had decided to join the coaster bus ride home, for two reasons, it’s got better seats and arrangement than the popular yellow buses (LT and Paragon), it would also arrive faster at my destination, albeit its more expensive than the yellow buses. I sat down, I can’t say in peace though, you can hardly be on the street of Lagos and expect that tranquility of Beverly Hills, as commuters strolled into the bus indecisively. It took a while before the bus got filled and ready to go. A young lady, had been in the bus for as long as I had been, some few seats behind me, surrounded by male commuters, she was the only female within 3 rows. The journey started slowly, because at this time of the day in Lagos everything goes slowly. The journey started uneventful, besides the occasional ranting of passeng…

Tupac Shakur’s stepfather up for parole after spending 30 years in prison

Mutulu Shakur (born Jeral Wayne Williams, August 8, 1950) is an American black nationalist and acupuncturist. He was a proponent of the Republic of New Afrika and a close friend of Geronimo Pratt.

Shakur is best known for his conviction on racketeering charges following the 1979 prison escape of Joanne Chesimard (Assata Shakur) and the infamous $1.6 million robbery of a Brinks armored truck in New York in which a guard and two police officers were killed. It was later found that an illegal project by the FBI, COINTELPRO, aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and neutralizing what they considered domestic political organizations, like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., had targeted Mutulu as well as many of his comrades.  Mutulu Shakur is the stepfather of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur. He was captured, convicted and sentenced to 60 years in prison for leading a revolutionary group responsible for a trail of bloodshed, including the slayings of an armed guard and two New York polic…
