The people of Mbiri kingdom, in Ika North East Local Government Area are now living in fear following the gruesome murder of 18-year-old girl, Miss Faith Ijeamaka, who was beheaded with her breasts and genitals cut off.
It was gathered from the bereaved family that Faith’s body was found mutilated along a farm road in Mbiri, days after she went missing last month.
According to the statement made by the family, “we resorted to consulting a soothsayer after days passed without knowing the whereabouts of Faith.”
This is coming on the heels of the killing of a 22-year-old man, Mr. Godstime Okoh, a.k.a. GT, by yet-to-be identified cultists.
The indigene of Ute-Okpu, in Ika North-East Local Government Area, was reportedly gunned down alongside his friend, Kester, two Saturdays ago at Dorathy by Okobi Street, Boji-Boji, Owa.
Speaking with newsmen during a visit to the residence of the deceased, his mother, Mrs. Doris Okoh said that her son was neither a cultist nor had anything to do with cult members, but wondered why he was killed in his prime.
In her words: “My son, Godstime, has been a very good and obedient child to me. Since we have been living together, I have never found or suspected Godstime to be a member of any cult group.”
