Seven individuals were killed in Dasin Bwate village in Adamawa’s Fufore Local Government Area on suspicion of witchcraft, according to police.
DSP Sulaiman Nguroje, the state’s police spokesman, verified the news to the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Yola.
The event occurred on Tuesday, according to Nguroje, who also stated that an investigation team had been dispatched to the community.
“Witchcraft allegations led to the deaths of seven persons in Dasin Bwate village in Fufore LGA.
“An investigating team has been dispatched to the village,” Nguroje stated.
He said, however, that when the team arrived in the village on Wednesday morning, all of the locals had left, including the village chief.
According to Nguroje, the team discovered the seven unidentified bodies in one of the village’s dwellings.
So yet, he claims, no arrests have been made.
“We are pleading with the neighboring communities to provide vital information on the locations of the residents of Dasin Bwate to the police,” Nguroje said.
