Police investigate alleged mob killing of murder suspect

26 November 2016, 20:55

Enugu - The police in Enugu State are investigating the death of a man, allegedly killed by a mob after he allegedly hacked another to death in Achara-Ndiagu community in Nkanu West Local Government Area.

The Enugu State Police Command spokesman, Mr Ebere Amaraizu, confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Saturday.

“The sleepy and quite community of Achara-Ndiagu in Nkanu West Local Government Area was thrown to mourning on Friday after the gruesome incident,’’ Amaraizu said.

He said available information indicated that an unknown young man had come into the community on the pretext of praying but later turned violent.

He said the man allegedly cut off the ear of a lady identified as ‘’Miss Nnamani Mary with a cutlass before gruesomely killing one Ifeanyi Mba, who had intervened to ward off his attack on Miss Nnamani,’’ by cutting-off his head.

“It was further gathered that the alleged action of the yet to be known suspect angered sympathisers and allegedly generated a mob action against the suspect which allegedly caused his death,’’ Amaraizu said.

He said that the corpses of Mba and the alleged assailant had been deposited at the District Hospital Mortuary, Agbani, in the area.
