With cases of kidnapping of many people for ritual purposes getting more rampart and reports of many untraceable individuals featuring in the news and dominating security and safety discussions around the country, the Nigerian Police Force has warned members of the public against moving carelessly in some dangerous locations in some parts of the country.
The warning is even more important as it has emerged that many public transport business men are being paid huge sums to deposit passengers in an underground dungeon in Edo State after the passengers are hypnotised or drugged just on entry into the vehicle. This is especially common with those embarking on early morning travel to beat the rush hour traffic bottleneck. Inter city passengers are said to have fallen victims of such clandestine kidnappings.
Edo State underground dungeon is said to have existed for decades and unsuspicious passengers are allegedly dumped in the dungeon through a bush route by drivers purportedly taking them on intercity travels.
The location of the human slaughter dungeon is yet to be identified because those that engage in the nefarious sell out of fellow humans are said to be operating under sworn rituals to keep the deal secret.
It is alleged that the haven consumes at least 200 people every day and many powerful individuals are said to be paying regular visits to the underground human abattoir in search of various powers to shield themselves from dangers and to get wealth from voodoo powers made from humans.
Details of the activities of the underground dungeon operators came to light not too long ago when a lucky man escaped through the help of one of the contracted drivers.
Many unsuspected students, civil servants, business people and families are said to have fallen prey and whoever gets into the haven never sees the light of the day, used for several purposes of voodoo concoctions.
Many of the victims only rose up early in the morning to meet the kidnappers posing as passengers while the conductors and the drivers chant their destinations. The unsuspected victims are driven hundreds of miles into a bush in Edo State after they had been hypnotised and drugged.
Many family members who had been lost are said to be victims of the underground dungeon which is yet to be discovered by Nigeria.
The underposted video tells the story more graphically in an Ibadan based Yoruba Radio Programme, Oselenkejo , hosted by Kola Olotu.
The Nigeria Police Force is making concerted efforts to prevent people from being kidnapped for such ritual destinations for voodoo sacrifices have given its stern warning that people should watch their movements around certain areas across the country where such pick-ups by predators are commonplace . The kidnappers’ source of passengers’ supply of passengers are said to be spread across the country.
