Man caught with a human head, was delivering it to a witchdoctor
The man, after inquiry, revealed that he had been sent by a local witch doctor to bring the head as part of an intricate ritual that would restore his dwindling finances.
At the time of his arrest, it was not revealed who the head belonged to.
The human head resting between his feet.
Residents who were shaken demanded to know how he had come to the head and if it was true that he had killed a man. At first, the man jabbered that he broke into a mortuary and cut off the head off a corpse.
After much prodding from the crowd that was preparing to lynch and burn him, the man admitted that he had attacked his neighbor after he was told by the witch that it was the neighbor who was behind his dwindling finances.
The rather unkempt man went on to reveal that he had broken into his neighbor’s house in the cover of the night, attacked him with an axe before severing his head off.
When he was arrested, he was on his way to see the Witch doctor for the final part of the ritual that had involved human sacrifice.
Police came before the crowd that caught him got to set him on fire. He is currently in police custody and will be arraigned in court for murder.
