Gunmen have attacked Mgbuitanwo community in Emohua Local Government
Area of Rivers State, killing and beheading a 28-year-old man.
The victim, who was identified as Mr. Ukeoma, was shot before he was
decapitated by the unknown gunmen, who gained entry into the community
at about 5:30am this morning.
Not done with their act, the gunmen abducted one Mr. Eruchi and took him to a yet-to-be ascertained destination, a witness said.
The mode of operation of the assailant was said to be similar to that
of the attack that led to the recent killing and beheading of Franklin
Obi, the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Ward 4 in Omoku,
Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area and two members of his family.
Though no reason has been given for the attack, it was gathered that
invasion of the community could be a reprisal by a cult group.
