The Ebonyi State Police Command in Nigeria has arrested a man identified as Chinedu Nweke, for attacking
and beheading a 45 year old woman Philomena Nwega, on September 6, 2014, when she was returning from the farm.
Nweke, 32, a native of Amuda, in Ezza North local government area of the state said he beheaded the woman for her son’s alleged raping of his wife, according to report from Leadership.
According to the state commissioner of police, CP Maigari Dikko, “The suspect confessed that on September 6, 2014, he way-laid and cut off the head of Philomena Nwega, a 45-year-old woman from the same village [as his] while she was returning from farm.
“He said he did the deed because the son of the deceased, one Friday Nwega, raped his wife some time ago. After committing the murder, the suspect threw the headless body into the Ogbor stream in Amuda and buried the head in a nearby bush,” Dikko disclosed.
Dikko also stated that both the body and the head of the deceased have been recovered by the operatives of the Command’s Department of Investigation. He also hinted that a team of policemen attached to the Onicha Police Division, acting on a tip-off on August 14, 2014, swooped on and arrested three armed robbers who had barricaded the Onicha-Ohaozara Road, in order to rob travellers and unsuspecting road users.
“Those arrested include Joshua Odu (24), Ogbonna Oluchukwu (27) and Chukwu Friday (27). Items recovered from them include one locally made revolver, one locally made shot-gun and a round of ammunition,” Dikko said.
The commissioner also revealed that the command had, also, on August 13, 2014, at about 06:30pm, arrested eight suspected cult members for alleged cult activities and the attempted murder of one Igwe Uchenna, a resident of Awkuzu Street, Kpirikpiri and Azuewa Ijeoma of Ele Street, Abakaliki.
