PRM await confirmation of Bakhir Ayoob's arrest in RSA
The Mozambique police detained 12 individuals last week for alleged involvement in the murder of a citizen and human organ trafficking in the Angónia district of central Tete province.
The case occurred last week in the Taliline area, in the Calómwè region of the Angónia district, where the alleged criminals stoned a male victim to death before cutting off his genitals.
Radio Moçambique reports that two of the suspects have confessed their involvement in the crime, claiming it was on order from an individual who sells genitals for superstitious practices.
The detainees say that the alleged mastermind lives in the Dedza region of neighbouring Malawi.
Police commander in Angónia João Armindo João said that the detention of the individuals was made possible thanks by the cooperation of people in the area.
This is the second case of trafficking in human organs registered by Tete authorities this year, the first of which occurred two weeks ago in Moatize when two men abandoned a bag containing human bones. Two suspects were arrested.Source: AIM Moçambique
