I  have said it time without number that this world is wicked and that the heart of man is desperately wicked.
The police in Nasarawa State on Tuesday said they have arrested in Keffi a middle-aged man, Musa Adamu, for selling his cousin at the cost of N8 million.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Umaru Shehu, told newsmen at the command’s headquarters in Lafia that the suspect would be charged to court after the conclusion of investigation.
The commissioner said preliminary investigation indicated that the suspect, who hails from Rijau in Niger, had sold his cousin at the sum of N8 million.
“The suspect agreed that he sold his cousin, and that he told the boy to come and meet him in Keffi after giving him transport money.
“He also said that he went to a point where he (the cousin) was slaughtered.
“He agreed that the people bought the boy for that sum, where his head, legs, eyes and every other thing were removed separately.
“It was in the process of this that luck ran out on them and my men arrested the suspect,” he said.

Shehu said the suspect had already collected the sum of N100,000 from the buyer before he was apprehended, following a tip-off.
Similarly, the commissioner said men of his command had on Jan. 15 arrested one Dan Anze in the Akwanga Local Government Area with 25 bags of Indian hemp.
In the same vein, Shehu also brought before newsmen some suspects arrested by the command for alleged robbery.
He listed items recovered from the suspects to include one locally-made revolver with several rounds of ammunition, five cutlasses and some quantity of dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp.
Shehu urged members of the public to assist the police with useful information that could help in apprehending criminals.(NAN)
