Nov 4, 2015 – Chaos In Aba Abia State As Ritualists Behead Lady, Dumps Body On Enugu Port Harcourt Expressway
Residents of Agalaba community in Osisioma Local Government Area of Aba woke up to find a headless body dumped beside a filling station on Enugu- Port-Harcourt Expressway.
The naked body, identified as that of a lady believed to be in her 30s, had bruises. Some of the residents said the lady must have been killed for rituals by those who must have lured her. One of the residents said the perpetrators must have come from one of the neighbouring towns as nobody had been declared missing in the community.
He dismissed suggestions that the victim might have been killed by a hitand- run driver.
According to him, if it was an accident, the lady’s head would have been lying beside her body. Another resident claimed that at this period of the year that such gruesome murders and mutilated bodies were common in parts of the town.
According to her, the presence of the military had abated such killings.
The discovery of the body forced motorists to desert the ever-busy Agalaba portion of the Enugu-Port-Harcourt Expressway.
Members of the Nigeria Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) who pick passengers from the spot to Port-Harcourt avoided the area. Many said they were afraid of being arrested by law enforcement agencies.
