Four male students have been killed by alleged ritualists at an Islamic school, located in Tungan Magajiya, Rijau Local Government Area of Niger state. The ritualists reportedly invaded the Islamic school attended by the deceased four in the dead of the night, slit their throats and collected their blood into a container.
One of the parents of the deceased boys confirmed the incident to Vanguard. He said three of the boys died instantly while the other passed on later.
The Niger Police Command spokesperson, DSP, Bala Elkana, said “those involved are suspected ritualists because they only took away the victims’ blood and left their bodies on the spot around 3a.m. yesterday”. He added that investigation was ongoing.
