Suspected ritualist meets waterloo in Abia reports that suspected ritualist was Monday, clubbed to death by vigilante group in Umuahia, the Abia State capital.

The decomposing corpse of the suspect as at the time of filing this report still lay on Niger Road by Awolowo Street while shop owners on the street have deserted their shops apparently because of the nuisance or  to escape arrest.

Meanwhile, the killing of the suspect has been shrouded in controversy as some say he was a notorious ritualist believed to have killed so many people while others say he was a mentally deranged person.

A source told our correspondent that the suspect was a notorious ritualist and serial rapist who raped most of his female victims before killing them for rituals.

He was also believed to be responsible  for the disappearance of some children in the recent times.

According to the source, he met his waterloo early Monday morning  after attacking a girl who had gone to throw away refuse at a refuse bin on the street.

Irked by the unprovoked attack on  the hapless victim some vigilante men on the street were said to have descended on him and clubbed him to death.

The source said the suspect who always disguised as a mad man by dressing shabbily was discovered to be wearing " very clean pants" which suggested that he was in his right senses.

However, the full identity and nativity of the suspect were yet to be established.

But when contacted, the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Umuahia Central Police Division, Mr. Ezekiel Onyeke, said the man was a mad person.

He said police in partnership with the Health Department of the Local council  were making efforts to evacuate the remains of the deceased so that it would not constitute health hazards to residents of the area.
