The incident is coming barely one week after one Itodo Oforma was killed by the same group during his mother’s funeral ceremony.
A family source told DailyPost that the group butchered Obinna to death, having accused him of stealing an unidentified item from the compound of a top Enugu State Government official, who hails from the community.
“The truth is yet to be told; they are yet to tell us why they killed him so ruthlessly”, he lamented.
The family source continued that their brother was killed “by a gang, that parades as Aji neighbourhood watch. The leaders of the gang are ‘hunchback and Otiyo’. They are the same people that murdered Oforma Itodo”.
DailyPost learnt that the group used axe to cut off Obinna’s toes, gave him matchet cuts in other parts of the body.
It was further disclosed that the victim has died before men of the Enugu State Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, arrived the scene.
Azegba confirmed that his group apprehended the deceased along Aji Ogrute road, Enugu Ezike and questioned him, after which they handed him over to the police for further interrogation.
He denied that his group butchered the deceased to death, claiming that he only heard from people that he was dead, after they had handed him over to the police.
Enugu State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ebere Amarizu, DSP, said he was yet to get details of the incident.
