He said the suspect, who came from Suleja, alighted from an unmarked vehicle and pretended to be buying fairly used clothes and in the process brushed a passer-by.
“The man pretended as if he had fallen down and in the process brushed the victim with his shoulder. The young man raised an alarm about the disappearance of his manhood few minutes later,” Yakubu said.
He said some people chased the suspect and stopped him from leaving the market.
The suspect denied stealing the manhood and the mob that had already gathered descended on him beating him into a stupor, until members of the vigilante group rescued him, the witness said, adding that the man later confessed and and did another routine and the victim’s manhood was “restored.”
The officer said the victim’s manhood was not missing when he was brought to the station.
