Speaking about the discovery, a resident said that the building has been abandoned for a long time and many residents of the area did not know the owner. He explained that a security operative attached to one of the buildings in the area shot a bird that had perched on a tree beside the suspected ritualists’ den. On hearing the gunshot, the suspected hoodlums reportedly rushed out and fled. “The suspects thought the gunshot was from the policemen who came for them. They quickly rushed out, but some commercial motorcycle riders in the area helped us to chase and arrest four of them, whom we later handed over to the police.” a source revealed to Punch. The source added that it was the timely intervention of policemen that saved the suspects from being lynched by the angry residents of the area. Items of clothing littered the place; and they include women’s underwear, sandals, slippers, cooking utensils, mattresses, toothpaste and toothbrushes, among other items.
