Robbers storm cemetery, scatter concrete, steal albino’s corpse

A group of unknown robbers has reportedly stormed a cemetery and scattered a concrete grave of an albino and stole the body parts of the deceased.

According to BBC, the Police in Mozambique have launched an investigation into the issue that happened to the albino who was buried not too long ago.

The incident occurred in the Moatize district, in Tete province, which is the western part of the eastern African country. The grave diggers reportedly dug through concrete and dug out the corpse of the albino who was buried a few weeks ago.

The 50-year-old deceased was recently buried in a village in Malawi when some robbers broke into the cement grave.

“The cemetery is isolated. To get there it is a long distance, to go alone you have to think twice, otherwise, maybe a team [was involved],” the BBC quotes Remane Madane, an albino rights activist.

There are some rumors that albinos who lack pigment in their skin and appear pale are hunted like a game and killed for ritual purposes. The police is currently investigating the matter.
