A 33-year-old man, Gabriel Volts, has been arrested by men of the Delta State Police Command for allegedly beheading his son for ritual.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe, in a statement on Sunday, disclosed that the suspect took his one-year-and-eight-month-old son from his wife and went to Etinabobo bush in Edo State, where he used a handsaw to cut off his head and buried him beside a palm tree.
The PPRO stated, “The suspect was arrested after the child went missing, and the suspect lied to the wife that the son was with his sister in Warri, which turned out to be false.
“This prompted the wife to be suspicious. So, she reported to the police. The suspect has confessed to the alleged crime.”
