Eight persons have been arrested after they are linked to the reported theft of male genitals in Daudu, Guma Local Government Area of Benue State.
Police spokesperson Kate Anene while addressing newsmen on the report, said upon investigation launched into the claims, the police have found it to be false.
Anene said that the purported victims were taken to Benue State University Teaching Hospital where they were certified medically fit by a medical doctor but they insisted that their genital organs were removed.
The police spokesperson said one Saka Iorhemba and Prophet Jacob Uhembe of the same address were alleged to have conspired to mystically perpetrate this act and extort money from their victims as fee for healing.
According to the PPRO, properties belonging to the suspects were burnt down by a mob while the prophet escaped.
Recall that a church was set ablaze and many other houses destroyed by youths allegedly protesting missing male organ in Daudu town in Benue State.
