Six operatives of the Delta State task force on illegal packing, in Asaba, were yesterday allegedly hit by the strange disappearance of their genitals after they picked a wrapped paper in a seven books of Moses containing the sum of N3,000.
It was gathered that officials of the task force along the Asaba-Onitsha Expressway around Okwe in Asaba, stumbled on the wrapped paper, which unknown to them contained N3,000 neatly wrapped inside it.
Sources said the six operatives, who were clad in a blue stripe uniform, allegedly engaged in a heated argument over the sharing formula after discovering the money when the bubble burst and they allegedly noticed there was sudden disappearance of their genitals from their bodies.
An eyewitness, who preferred to be addressed as Mama Juliet, said the victims, in what appeared to be a movie scene, screamed aloud, which attracted passers-by to the scene. They were said to have been taken to a nearby church (name withheld) where the pastor in charge unraveled the mystery in the sudden disappearance of their reproductive organs.
One of the victims who spoke to our correspondent on the condition of anonymity, said: “We picked the money in a wrapped paper that we were later told was the seven books of Moses, while we were arguing on the sharing formula, we discovered our genital organs disappeared in shock, and a woman took us to the church while we were crying.”
Pastor of the church, Ruben Ogor, who claimed to have delivered the victims said: “I prayed on the seven books of Moses for God to have mercy on the victims. They were set free and got their genitals back.”
The incident which rattled residents of the area spreads like wildfire as many who were not at the scene described it as rumour making the rounds.
