Why we can’t investigate stealing of pants for juju —Police


The Nigeria Police Force, NPF, on Friday has explained that it is powerless in investigating the scourge of Nigerians stealing women pants and underwear for ritual purposes.

This was part of the statement made by the Public Relations Officer of the Police Force, Frank Mba who explained that investigations into cases of theft of pants for ritual purposes are impossible due to lack of empirical verification.

He continued via a series of tweets on the Twitter handle of the Nigeria Police Force.


“Stealing of underwear for whatsoever reason is a recent phenomenon, before now, we had cases of rituals killings but we can’t investigate things that are not empirically verifiable except when there is convergence of the act like cases of murder or an attempt or related crimes

“We are indeed in a trying time. It’s good to be positively ambitious but wanting to get rich quick with minimal skills, efforts and at a very short time is quite disturbing.

“We don’t investigate divination or morality except related acts that constitute a criminal offence. Apart from factors like unemployment etc what we have on home videos, TV programs and messages being sent out.

“Drug and substance abuses are strong conscience suppressors that influence our youth into these wicked acts of fetish and ritual killings for get-rich-quick.

“While we’ll continue to fight menace of drug abuse head-on, we want our youths to desist or be ready to bear the consequences.”
