Ritualist Rips out 7-year-old boy’s eyes in Borno state (photos)


News filtering in has it that a 7-year-old Almajiri, who had been kidnapped on Saturday at the Ngomari Kare Kili area of Borno state, has been found, but sadly with his eyes ripped out of the suckets.
The child, identified as Maina Bukar reports say suffered this ordeal in the hands of his abductor who allegedly needed his eyes for ritual purposes.
According to the boy’s father who narrated the incident little Maina was asked to bring water for ablution by the suspected ritualist. After obliging the wanted man, again asked the child to go with him to a nearby village. He obeyed and was taken to the bush where he was asked to wait in the bush while the suspect excused himself to urinate.
He then came back and told the poor boy that he would slaughter him.
The boy reportedly replied him saying;
” Don’t slaughter me because my teacher would not leave me”.
He then tied the boy down and ripped out his two eyes.
The boy sustained multiple knife injuries to his stomach and his thigh. He is currently on admission at the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital UMTH, Borno state.
Purple Heart Foundation in collaboration with Better Jere Initiative donated the sum of 100,000 Naira to the parents to aid the boy’s medical treatments.
