The Katsina State Police Command on Wednesday, paraded a 30-year-old suspected female ritualist and fraudster alongside other suspects arrested for various crimes in the state.
Spokesperson for the Command, SP Isah Gambo said that the suspect Hassatu Isah, was arrested on April 12, based on a tip off.
“Isah, of Jibia LGA of Katsina state, deceitfully collected the sum of one million, nine hundred and ninety-two thousand naira (N1,992,000:00K) from one Rabi’u Haruna, with intent to provide him with spiritual powers. Nemesis caught up with her when she could not deliver the spiritual powers to the victim and he demanded the return of his money.
She then planned to kill him by hiring a specialized hired killer one Babangida Dalha, ‘m’, aged 30yrs of Jibia whom she contracted with the sum of fifty thousand naira (N50,000:00K) for the job. In the course of investigation, suspects were arrested and confessed to have administered poison with intent to kill the victim which failed. And they eventually resorted to physical killing of the victim before they were arrested. Investigation is ongoing.” Said the PPRO
