A 35-year-old man, Shuaibu Ibrahim, who was arrested for being in possession of a human eyeball, has said he sells the human part for N250K.
Ibrahim, who hails from Safiu village in Toto Local Government of Nasarawa State, was arrested by the police in Niger state.
Dailytrust reports that Shuaibu Ibrahim was apprehended yesterday. The police said the eyeball was removed from a victim of communal clash between the Igbira and Bassa people in Nasarawa State.
The suspect had been trafficking in human parts for about five years before he ran out of luck yesterday. He was said to have been given the part by an accomplice identified as Ojo (now at large) to sell in Niger State at the cost of N250,000.
Responding to questions, the suspect said that he was the intermediary be-tween Ojo and the buyers of human parts, a business he had been doing for over five years. He said:
“My duty is to deliver human parts given to me by Ojo to his clients across the northern states.
We make quick money in this business but I cannot tell what the buyers are using it for. “A lot of people are interested in buying human parts. But honestly speaking, I don’t know what they use it for; my duty is to deliver as at when due to our clients and collect the money involved.” Asked whether the buyers use the human parts for ritual purposes, Ibrahim said “they must be using it for something; frankly speaking I don’t know. My duty was to carry out the order of my boss (Ojo) to his clients. “I don’t even ask clients what they are using the human eyeballs to do, but I guess it must be for something serious.”
