The Nigerian Police Force have said it cannot investigate the recent claim of stealing of ladies’ pants for money ritual because it is not empirically verifiable. The police also said that it can’t investigate divinations or morality except they are related acts that constitute a criminal offence. Mr. Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Frank Mba, the Force Public Relations Officer, speaking a live television programme on NTA, titled, ‘Good Morning Nigeria,’ said the police can’t investigate things that are not empirically verifiable except when there is convergence of the act like cases of murder or an attempt or related crimes.
“We don’t investigate divinations or morality except related acts that constitute a criminal offence. Apart from factors like unemployment, etc, what we have on home videos, TV programs and messages being sent out.”
In recent times stories of activities of fraudsters, popularly known as Yahoo Plus, have assumed a worrisome dimension lately as they are now accused of stealing ladies’ pants for quick money. Investigations reveal that the discharge from a lady’s private part on any stolen pant is believed to be vital for money ritual.
There were also stories of
suspects allegedly caught stealing by ladies pants with some of them said to
have been lynched before the arrival of security agents.
Mba blamed the upsurge in the quest for fast money on drug abuse and warned
people, especially the youths to desist from the act or be ready to bear the
consequences when caught. “Drug and substance abuses are strong conscience
suppressors that influence our youth into these wicked acts of fetish and
ritual killings for get-rich-quick. While we’ll continue to fight the menace of
drug abuse head-on, we want our youths to desist or be ready to bear the
consequences,” he said.
