According to the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Nkiru Nwode, the suspect had
already been killed and set ablaze before the arrival of the Police but the Police had
deposited the woman’s remains in the mortuary and investigation into the incident had commenced.

Mrs Nwode said: “We deployed our men quickly
to the place and when they got there, the angry
mob had already set the suspect ablaze but we
recovered the corpse of the deceased woman
and we have evacuated the body to Isuaniocha
Hospital. What has happened is very
unfortunate but we have deposited the corpse
for autopsy and at the same time, we will go
into a discreet investigation and we will charge
anyone found liable to such act to court.
“The suspect who was set ablaze is about 38
years old and from what we gathered, they said
he is a deportee from Morocco on grounds of
drugs. So, whatever that must have led to the
incident, I think it is premature to say but in the
course of investigation, we will still brief the public on the outcome.”

According to villagers, Orakwulu allegedly used a machete to hack Mrs. Theresa Obalum, (who
was about 40 years of age) to death, while on
her early morning routine of selling pap to customers.

Also, her husband, Mr Reginald Obalum, who is
blind and incapacitated by sickness, expressed
his grief over the loss. “I’m blind and it is my
wife that caters to us, a family of nine people.
She is the one that feeds us,” he said.
The Chairman of Abogu National Youth
Association of Mgbakwu, Christian Chukwuma,
while narrating the incident noted that the
mental state of the suspect was unclear and
pleaded that the security agencies and other
relevant authorities should help confine mentally
deranged members of the society in the appropriate places.
According to him, the incident marks the second time a violent attack such as that would
be happening in the community within a space of three months.
