ANGRY YOUTHS KILL MAN FOR CUTTING OFF FARMER'S HEAD


Enugu youths lynch man, burn corpse for beheading farmer





The Enugu State Police Command has begun investigation into the murder of a rice farmer, Mr Ngozi Ogbuewu, in Nenwe, in the Aninri Local Government Area of the state, and the retaliatory killing of the alleged perpetrator, Ifeanyi Ubah.

It was gathered that Ogbuewu went to his farm in Ugwuokpa village in Nenwe, and was returning home on a motorcycle when he was accosted by the suspect, who was a native of Nomeh, in the Nkanu East area of the state.

Ubah was said to have hacked the victim to death and cut off his head.

A resident, who gave his name as Dj-stuky Guy, said the farmer’s wife fled the scene.

He said, “The man went to his rice farm with his wife to apply fertiliser and other pesticides and while he was returning home with his wife on their motorcycle, the suspect struck and pushed them down. The wife was lucky and ran away, while the husband was cut with a machete and killed.

“After cutting off the man’s head, he hid it in a fertiliser bag and took it home with the victim’s motorcycle.

“Unfortunately for him, he was caught in his community when the head fell off from the motorcycle he was riding and he was apprehended by members of his community

“During interrogation, the suspect told his community that he killed the man because they had a misunderstanding.”

Guy explained that while the interrogation was ongoing, the people of Nenwe, who were informed of the incident by the victim’s wife, stormed Nomeh and demanded that Ubah be handed over to them.

A community leader from Nomeh said that his people released the suspect to avoid an inter-communal war.

He said the mob chased away police operatives who attempted to intervene.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Daniel Ndukwe, confirmed the incident.

Man gets to positions of power and authority and bring to bear their inner qualities. Position, as we have it here, is used to do all sorts of things; good and bad. But mostly and vexatiously, position blinds us as we use it to cheat and deny others their rights.

I was looking for the "electric
