Three men have been arrested by vigilantes in Old Poly Quarters with dead body of two month old baby .
The men who were suspected to be ritualists were trailed by the vigilantes at about 2 am after a tip off from residents of the community.
After they were arrested in their attempt to escape from where they were trying to bury the remain of baby they were later handed over to the police.
One of the vigilantes who spoke on condition of anonymity to The Newsmaker said the suspects claimed that the baby was their younger sister child who died in the night and they decided to go and bury it .
Though the explanation according to the vigilantes does not add up considering the distance they moved the baby’s body from before coming to bury it at the old Poly Quarters.
The suspects said they were residents of Ganaja village which is a distance of about 10 kilometres to Old Poly Quarters though in the same Lokoja.
Further Check revealed that the Police are now investigating the case but the suspects were still in their custody at the time of filling this report.
