An illegal immigrant from Nigeria named Innocent Oseghale has been sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder and dismemberment of an 18-year-old girl named Pamela Mastropietro. Mr. Oseghale had stayed on in Italy after his residence permit expired, making his living as part of a gang that smuggled and sold drugs. In January of 2018 he lured Ms. Mastropietro to a rendezvous where she was killed, and then dismembered.
Mr. Oseghale has now been sentenced to life in prison by a panel of Italian judges.
In the following video, the possibility is mentioned that Innocent Oseghale was not the only person involved in the girl’s murder. We’ve posted a number of times in the past about the murder of Pamela Mastropietro; and in the first two posts listed below, Alessandro Meluzzi discusses the theory that Ms. Mastropietro was not just dismembered, but ritually dismembered and partially eaten by a Nigerian mafia gang, which intended to sell some of her body parts on the black market.
Below are excerpts from a Breitbart article (hat tip Reader from Chicago) about the sentencing of Innocent Oseghale:
