Unknown assailants are reported to have killed a 15-year-old girl in the Ukwuani Local Government Area in Delta state. Her identity has not yet been revealed.
On Tuesday, September 7, the body of a young girl with her hands cut off at the wrists was discovered in a bush around Aragba Umuebu axis of Ukwuani.
According to Dr. Peter Esegbue, who shared the photo on Facebook, there is palpable tension in Ukwuani in the wake of the brutal murder.
He wrote that the girl had been murdered, dismembered and possibly used for ritual purposes by highly disgruntled evil men who will never know peace. Anybody who stopped the child from living will also never live,” he said.
"This murder is causing tension and hostilities [in Ukwuani land] between Amai and Obiaruku-Umuebu [as an Okada rider was reportedly abducted yesterday, in the wake of the murder of this young girl] Let's not fight or kill each other. Ukwuani is one big family. Let peace reign in Ukwuani land, please."
