A suspected ritualist was subjected to jungle justice earlier today after allegedly killing a young girl in Akenfa, Yenagoa, Bayelsa state.
It was gathered that the alleged ritualist pretended to a homeless man loitering around the area before he allegedly slaughtered a teenage girl and was nabbed in the process.
The angry mob immediately descended on him and lynched him to serve as punishment and also a deterrent to others due to the increasing rate of ritual killings in the region.
The latest victim will make it three ladies who have been gruesomely killed in Akenfa community in less than two months.
It was earlier reported that two women were killed by unidentified ritualists in Akenfa I in January 2019.
