7-year old Juwairiya Auwal has become another victim of ritual killers in Plateau State. She was allegedly slaughtered by a woman dressed in Fulani dress.
Narrating how her younger sister was killed by the Fulani woman to those who came to Jumairiya;s rescue too late, Fatima Auwal, who spoke in Hausa, said they were out selling brooms when they met the Fulani woman along Tudun Osi in Jos North, who pretended to be a prospective buyer.
She said the woman, did ask them to give her a broom, but they refused, as she was not willing to pay for it. Suddenly, she touched their heads and they found themselves in a hut in the popular Jos Museum.
Lamenting, Fatima Auwal told the crowd that she only opened her eyes and found the elderly Fulani woman, slaughtering her younger sister, Jumairiya. According to her, it was at that point she escaped to look for help.
“I ran looking for help, I met a man reading a newspaper and narrate what happened to him, but before we got back to the hut the old woman had disappeared. The man rushed to the nearest police station and reported the incident. The police arrived and picked up the corpse of my sister to Plateau State Specialist Hospital.
“The strange thing is that, my sister was slaughtered, but no trace of her blood on the ground or her body”.
The family of late Juwairiya Auwal, have since buried the slaughtered girl.
