Cannibal Clifford Orji dies in Kirikiri prisons

The story of Clifford Orji is a long one but let me try to summarize it. Clifford Orji was arrested in February 1999 by the police under the bridge at Toyota Bus Stop along the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway in Lagos after passers-by noticed his strange activities under the bridge. Items found on him at the time of his arrest was a cheque for the sum of N88,000, a cell phone, women underwear and fresh and roast human flesh and bones.

He had roasted one of his victims at the time and eaten part of her flesh. The police believed Clifford was mad at the time he was arrested but there was a theory back then that his madness was fake; that ritualists put him under that bridge to act like he was mad, find victims, kill them and sell their body parts to them. Thus the cheque that was found on him. His arrest in 1999 was widely celebrated in the media.

Anyway, after 13 years in prison, Clifford Orji, who went completely mad in prison, has died. He died on Friday August 17th in his sleep. He was 46 years old.

Its just unfortunate. He should have been given the psychological help he needed.

I remember seeing this news in secondary school. And trust naija news, they showed everything from the bones, roasted human parts etc. I was traumatized for a while. I am glad that they kept him away from the public all these years.

However, I wonder if they kept him with other sane inmates. I think that would have been unfair because he was mad. I wish the government wasn't filled with possessed and money hungry people because a nigger like this should be taken to a mental institution..a proper mental institution and not prison. I don't know if we have one for inmates because you cannot put a sane and insane inmate together.

Prison is really a terrible place to be I tell you. Ex-convicts should also through therapy..but trust the bastard leaders will not implement a system that supports this, they will rather focus on stealing funds for themselves.

Hope is really dead, such people should be burn to ashes rather than buriaing them.

leema said...

How won't he die when there are no human flesh to devour in Kirikiri. If he had he's favourite meal he would have lived longer. Nigerian prisons ! Will put a cannibal amongst human beigns , ofcourse he'll go very mad from seeing them but can't chop other inmates.

I choose to believe the "ritualist theory" and a good source to justify this theory is "Confessions of a ritual killer" available @ Terra Kulture.

Finally the wicked one is dead.Dat is my wish for his likes in dis country. Death through perpetual suffering except they repent.

deekay said...

"Went completely mad in prison ".....maybe he really was mad to begin with? Like not the usual naija madness but psychotic and not a sane man who killed and ate ppl for rituals. Don't know the full gist, but that's what I gathered from your summary.

Ohh my gosh! This dude!!

Such horror this guy's tales gave me.. I still believe there was some occultic stuff going on with him, else why would anyone write a cheque for a mad man. There was so much controversy when he was caught.

Well, he won't be missed.

Just because he had a cheque, bank account and a cell phone doesn't mean he did not suffer from mental illness. We should begin to see mental illness as much more than just living naked on the streets. Lots of Nigerians suffer from mental illness, especially in Lagos.

His burial rites and ceremony should be broadcasted on national TV...nothing is impossible in 9ja , they might be sneaking him out of d jail with this bogus death story.

Hmmmm didn't even know he was in jail for that long

HeartBender said...

And we didn't get to the root of his story. We still don't know whose bones/flesh he was eating all those years ago. Another unsolved mystery.

Hmmmm.....y do I feel like it's not over yet? Like dis death story is a lie and dat he's somewhere around, ALIVE...looking for more human beings to kill and eat..*scared*

The End of an Evil
In terror,men trode
In toyota's men rode
For the one whose quest was man's flesh
Toyota (b/stop) his abode
With a flame to human flesh
He rose on the back of man's precious venison to fame
With 88k to his name,life was tasty
Until the rift was ripped open and balance distraught
Fate had had enough
Whisked away to the great darkness for lost souls
Kiri-kiri,his abode till he lost his own
This is the tale of a man whose love for man's precious hide
Was blown into oblivion by life's harshest tide
This is the tale of Clifford Orji *in Merlin narrators voice* hehehhehehe

So finally his era has ended the evil that men do life with them

Anonymous said...

If I remember clearly, mobile phones (GSM) were rolled out by mid 2000. Or was he using a satelite phone in 1999? That must have been expensive. Or probably the then Nitel 090 mobiles. Anyway, he was running a lucrative human parts business!

Anonymous said...

Wow, I remember when I first heard about this guy in naija, I was about 12yrs old. I was scared to death. I also heard he used the human parts for suya. This guy was obviously MENTALLY ILL, that needed to be on medication.
