According to the female victim, “We met at the club last night and we all went back to their apartment to sleep over. At some point, I noticed some funny movement and I saw them with a calabash (a native pot).
“That was when I knew they were ritualists with the intention to use me for rituals. So, I jumped off the two-storey building, and off the fence. I then reported the case to the ‘Operation Burst’.
Preliminary investigations have also revealed that the suspects have various incriminating documents stored in the Laptops and phones recovered from them at the point of arrest.
