A four-year-old boy, Eleazar Ishaya, was found dead inside a manhole close to Mr. Biggs in the Jabi area in Abuja three days after he was declared missing.
Family sources said Ishiya was declared missing on Friday, March 3, at Filin Ball; Jabi Daki Biyu and his corpse were discovered three days after.
A witness, Joel Joseph, said, “When we saw his body inside the manhole, his grandmother attempted to jump inside, but I took hold of her and pushed her away.
“I jumped inside the pit, where I found the body rotten. “His tongue, anus and genitals were chopped off while his eyes were plucked out.
“It’s apparent that his killers are ritualists, and they might have dumped him inside the pit in the night.” The victim, described by his mother, Precious Ishaya, as “smart”, was a nursery one pupil and was the family’s only child.
The mother said, “On that fateful Friday, Eleazar was about to be bathed. But instead, he took a #10 note to buy sweets from a neighbourhood shop, and that was how my only child went missing.
“I am not disturbed by his death, but rather how horribly he was tortured. “I rest my case to God. I don’t know the perpetrators because I am not a spiritual-eyed being. “The boy’s blood will infiltrate his heartless killer(s) because he was innocent. “They should consider themselves dead already. “I could not muster the courage to see his defaced body; later, I managed to see his body in pictures.”
