The victim was reportedly blamed by his killers for murdering a person after turning into a crocodile, with people from three villages mobilising in order to carry out the grisly deed.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari issued a defiant rejection of rumors that he had died and secretly been replaced by a clone during remarks in Poland on Sunday.
Buhari made the remarks during an open question session in which aides read him questions from the Nigerian public. Nigerian social media has recently been home to a vigorous debate on whether the 75-year-old Buhari, prone to long absences from the country to receive unspecified medical care, died long ago and was replaced with “Jibril,” a clone from Sudan. Some rumors identify Jibril as a Chadian replacement for the Nigerian president. Few provide any details regarding who did the cloning and how they successfully managed to create a 75-year-old man during Buhari’s absence last year.
Buhari added a lament that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo also faced scrutiny on whether he should have assumed the presidency instead of the clone when Buhari died.
