Fear has intensely increased in some part of South Eastern Nigeria after Gunmen slain and decapitated an Ebubeagu security operative, Sunday Nwafor, in Ekpelu, Ebonyi state’s Ikwo local government area.
This comes as teenagers from Akaeze in the Ivo local government area protested the purported assassination of one Nnaogo Akpoke Anyim by members of the Ebubeagu security organization.
Anyim, who was allegedly a notorious criminal in a video that went viral on social media on January 18, 2022, was tortured to death by members of the organization.
In the Ekpelu incident, over five gunmen raided Sunday Nwafor’s residence and shot him dead while he was sleeping.
The shooters removed his body from his chamber, cutting off his head and removing it.
DSP Loveth Odah, the state Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed the event.
She said, “According to the DPO of Ikwo police division, some gunmen went to one Sunday Nwafor’s house. Sunday Nwafor is about 30 years old and a member of Ebubeagu security outfit, Ikwo local government area.
“The gunmen broke into his room while he was asleep and shot him dead. They dragged the body outside the room and beheaded him.
“According to the wife who spoke to policemen, before she heard a gunshot, she over-heard one of the hoodlums telling her husband that he left them in the bush and came back home to enjoy himself by collecting N30, 000 from government.
“Two of the suspects have been arrested. Investigation is ongoing. This act is barbaric and act of inhumanity. Why are we recording these things in Ikwo? This is coming barely two weeks after recording the other Ebubeagu incident that was also killed in this form and half burnt.”
