Police Arrest Plateau Man for Selling Wife to Ritualists for N800,000



Ritualists Capture BellaNaijaPlateau State police authorities have arrested a man named Maimako Shephang for allegedly selling his wife to ritualists for N800,000.

Shephang  lured his wife, Agnes, into the bush and sold her to “two masked men” for ritual purposes Punch reports.

According to reports, the ritualists asked Agnes if she was a spinster, and were shocked when she told them it was her husband that sold her.

They then ordered her to run away, as they had requested to purchase a virgin for the sacrifice.

Upon her release, Agnes reported the incident to the police, who arrested her husband and one of the ritualists.

The case is currently under investigation.

    When northerners ‘ve d right of marrying as many wives as possible , every evil act is possible . With 800k he can order another wife or wives with plenty change . God will judge all d evil doers .

      If u understand the religious and tribal dynamics down north u wont b so damn ignorant.
      1. We northerners aren’t all muslims
      2.we are not all polygamous
      3. Muslims aren’t the only polygamous people in Nigeria.
      4. This is from plateau where monogamy is prevalent
      5. This is from a christian environment u can tell by their names.
      Thus, this ur order a new wife story is a bit annoying

    vices of men hav nothing to do with tribe or race. a mean person is just mean.
    tribalizing it also trivializes it.

    Wow, wickedness! I think people ought to be careful during this electioneering season. I’ve heard cases of politicians using people/body parts for ritual in order to win elections. Not sure how true, but I’ve heard. Nigeria, Na wa Ooooo! Wonders shall never end!

    How will N800,000 even change his life? Won’t the money finish one day? Terrible world we live in .

    So what would have been the outcome had she been a virgin? What kind of world are we living in when ritualistic practices even exist?

    I thank God her life was spared, but there is no real joy to be had, because someone else will have to still pay the price, especially when money has been dispensed. Furthermore, the belief system that causes these actions have not been addressed. When will a campaign be launched to drive out these belief systems from the land? NOBODY should be thinking that human sacrifice is the way to get ahead in life. We really are living in a fkd up world.

    these criminals, clearly not good at their jobs cos if they were, they would have known that letting her go was a terrible idea. That said, i am glad they are bad at their jobs. 😀
