To some people, it does not matter that we are in 21st century.

They cannot let go of what makes their palates tick.

A man in Anambra suspected to be a security guard with the Nnewi Diocese of the Anglican Church has been arrested by operatives of the Anambra State Police Command for being in possession of human parts.

For ritual purposes, would be your first thoughts, but the police think otherwise. They believe he is just a cannibal.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Sam Okaula, disclosed this to Southern City News on the telephone on Saturday.

Okaula, who said he could not give the suspect’s name, described him as an animal in human form.

He, however, said there is no evidence to show that the suspect sells human parts.

The police commissioner said, “He is with us. Some human parts were found in his possession; and I think he is just a cannibal.”

But what does the church have to say?

When contacted, Venerable Godwin Agba, the administrative secretary of the Diocese of Nnewi Anglican Communion, owners of the higher institution the suspect allegedly worked as a guard, denied that the suspect was their employee.

The suspect allegedly used the facility for sale and supply of human parts to fellow eaters and ritualists.
