A man in Malawi has been arrested after he was found to be trying to sell a penis he had just cut from a 45 year old man.
Officer responded to a report of a man lying unconscious near some railway tracks last Tuesday. When he was admitted to hospital he was found to be missing his penis and balls. Soon after police were then called to a motel where the owner reported a man trying to sell her a penis for US$360
The man who was a guest at the motel was arrested by police who also seized the penis. Salima police chief Foster Mangani said: “We rushed to the lodge and arrested the suspect. We also recovered the private parts.”
The suspect has been made as Samuel Banda who was found with the penis wrapped in white paper. Pictures were published by the local newspaper showing the severed penis wrapped in white paper. According to police Samuel Banda admitted to them of selling “many body parts to well-known business personalities”.
According to the local paper, the man is described as in a serious condition in the local hospital. It’s thought that the victim was caught by Samuel Banda when he was walking home drunk.
Local people believe that human body parts can bring them riches and many unscrupulous people pay money to poor locals to kill and dismember others.
