A seven-year-old girl known as Juwairiya Auwal had been slaughtered by a suspected female ritualist in a hut located in Jos Museum, Plateau State.
Reports point out that on Saturday, September 5, the deceased Juwairiya Auwal and her elder sister Fatima Auwal, went out, as usual, to sell brooms around Tudun OC in Rikkos community, Jos north local government area of the state. They were then approached by an unknown Fulani woman.
Revealing how her younger sister was murdered, Fatima stated that they were hawking when they came into contact with the Fulani woman who at first acted as if she was a prospective customer.
The unknown woman requested them to freely give her a broom but they refused. The woman then quickly touched their heads and they discovered themselves in a hut in the popular Jos Museum.
Fatima also made it known that when she had opened her eyes she found the elderly woman slaughtering Jumairiya. She, however, managed to run away to seek assistance.
“I ran looking for help, I met a man reading a newspaper and narrate what happened to him, but before we got back to the hut, the old woman had disappeared. The man rushed to the nearest police station and reported the incident. The police arrived and picked up the corpse of my sister to Plateau State Specialist Hospital. The strange thing is that, my sister was slaughtered, but no trace of her blood on the ground or her body”.
This recent incident occurred only a few weeks after a young boy identified as Faruk Abubakar was slaughtered for ritual purposes by unknown individuals in the Tudun Fera area of Jos.
Sharing photos of the little girl, one Assiddiq Jibrin Abubakar revealed that Fatima and Jumairiya’s father was killed by the police in the course of a crisis in October 2019. Their mother however remains unemployed and the family lives at Yanshanu Nassarawa Gwom in Jos Local Government Area of Plateau State.
The body had been released to the family by the police and the deceased has since been buried.
