As residents panic over the surge in reports of missing manhood in Lokoja, Kogi State capital, the Police has urged the people to desist from mob actions, assuring close monitoring of the situation.
More recently, on Tuesday, ebirareporters.com gathered that a man suspected to be a magical manhood thief was beaten to stupor.
The incident happened when the suspect visited a shop along Dunamis Church Road in Lokoja to buy bread.
Confusion started when the shop owner felt a shock in his body and thereafter touched his manhood, only to discover that his manhood had disappeared.
Upon hearing him scream and cry for help, neighbours and passersby attacked the suspect and gave him the most thorough beating of his life.
Speaking with our correspondent on the development, an eyewitness, Michael Nwankwo, said the suspect confessed to the crime after the thorough beating and expressed joy that the manhood of the shop owner had been restored.
Similar incidents have occurred in Ganaja and Karaworo in the state capital, with each suspect receiving mob action.
Confirming this, the Police Public Relations Officer, ASP William Aya, said the police have received reports and are monitoring the situations.
He cautioned the public not to take the law into their own hands, warning that once there is such allegation, the people should report to the police to enable them to conduct a proper investigation.
He warned that anybody who takes the law into his/her own hands, if arrested, will be prosecuted according to the law.
