Three young children have been ambushed and beheaded in a brutal triple murder in Nigeria – and it is believed their heads were taken away to be used in black magic rituals.
The devastated mother of the youngsters – who were aged 10, eight and six – has described the horror of seeing their headless bodies, and called on police to find the brutes responsible.
They were walking home with buckets of water when they were attacked.

The monsters pounced on the youngsters – identified as a 10-year-old girl named Terdors, an eight-year-old boy, Terna, and a six-year-old girl, Sulumshima – in the horrifying attack on October 30 in Disol village, in the Gasol local government area of Taraba State.
Their mother Cecilia Emberga Agammbuee, said: ‘When they finished swimming, they decided to fetch water with their buckets for use at home.
‘On their homeward journey, two men suddenly emerged from a farm and grabbed one of my three children in the group by the neck.
‘While the other children in the group threw away the buckets of water and ran for their dear lives, my two other children decided to fight to rescue their sibling.

‘The escaped children brought the news home. Immediately, my husband, fellow villagers and I ran to the scene of the attack where we found the headless bodies of the three children in the pool of their blood. It was horrifying.
‘When I saw their headless bodies, I thought I would die.’
Other items were found at the scene including a cap, substances believed to be hard drugs and a bloodstained shirt.
‘I had four children. With three of them killed in cold blood, I am left with only one. It all shows how dangerous the land is,’ Cecilia added.
Taraba State Police Command Public Relations Officer, David Misal, confirmed officers are investigating and said no arrests had been made as of yet.
