The albino body parts are believed to bring wealth or luck and because of this, a lot of people are paying as much as $3,000 or $4,000 for a limb, or as much as $75,000 – about £50,000 – for the ‘full set’, a whole body in Tanzania.

There have been 74 killings and 59 survivors of attacks. Even the dead are not safe: 16 graves have been robbed, recently, a four-year-old Pendo Emmanuelle Nundi was abducted, her father and uncle were both arrested in connection with her disappearance.
Mwigulu Matonange was just 10 when he was attacked by two men as he walked home from school with a friend.

They chopped off his left arm, before disappearing back into the jungle with their ‘prize’.
‘I was held down like a goat about to be slaughtered,’ he said

Josephat, who himself is albino, added: ‘People with the albinism are being hunted and killed for our body parts. It is because people want to become rich.

‘We are still living in danger. It is because people, they have different ideas. Some people, they are thinking they should get our body parts and sell to different places.

    Eiyaaah! Albinos. Not safe in the Niger Delta, because they confuse you guys for oyingbo, making you their primary kidnap target for ransome. Now a hot cake for ritualists in your own country. Eiyaaaah! There should be a govt legislation for the preservation and protection of these people, they are already endangered.
