These are the faces of five suspected ritualists caught in Jalingo, Taraba state capital while trying to kill a 10-year-old boy in the bush.
The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) arrested the five young men in the bush near Kona village based on intelligent information.
According to reports, the ritualists came to the area and convinced the 10-year-old boy that they needed him to go and cut the nails of their boys few meters away.
He said when the boy followed them outside his house, the villagers who suspected the actions of the five young men followed them behind only to discover that their aim was to kill the boy for their ritual purpose.
At the time the ritualists were caught, the 10-year-old boy already had a deep machete cut at his back and was rushed to the Federal Medical Center FMC Jalingo.
