Police in Tanzania have arrested a man who reportedly hid his girlfriend in a cemented pit.

The man is believed to have kept his girlfriend in the pit for more than eight months.

Initial reports indicate that the man intended to use the woman in a ritual that was to bring him wealth.

The woman, said to be in her twenties, was rescued by Tanzanian authorities following a tip off from the man’s neighbors.

She told her rescuers that she used to survive on just two meals a week.

A video circulating on Facebook captured the moment the emaciated lady was found in the pit by police and neighbours. Nairobi News cannot publish the video due to its graphic nature.
