Hundreds of students attack ritualist for taking male organ of colleague

At the School of Health Technology in Maiduguri, Nigeria. A suspected ritualist was attacked by hundreds of students for allegedly "stealing" the male organ of their colleague this past Saturday.

Daily Trust reports that the suspect, a middle-aged man, drove to the school in an ash colored Jeep and was said to have met with the student. Thereafter, the student alerted his colleagues that his male organ was gone and accused the suspect of "stealing " it. The students proceeded to attack the man and they also vandalized his car.

A witness, Sani Goni told Daily Trust that in order to prevent being beaten to death, the suspect confessed to taking the male organ and then returned it. But after returning the male organ the students continued to beat him and school authorities had to call in the joint military and police police patrol team to rescue the suspect.

The principal of the College, Alhaji Bukar Modu confirmed the incident and said normalcy has been restored:

"I have earlier called the man to interview him in respect of the allegation and he confirmed removing the manhood of the boy but said he immediately returned it at the spot"

Principal Modu appealed to the students to stop taking the law into their own hands as the matter was being investigated by the police. The commandant of the patrol team that rescued the suspect, Chief Superintendent of Police Mohammed Amadu said the allegation was baseless because it could not be scientifically proven.
