There was pandemonium in Abgbarho Community, Delta State yesterday when a middle-aged man burnt a member of a vigilance group alive and ate his flesh. Daily Sun gathered that the culprit took the action to avenge the murder of his twin brother by the vigilance group member.
The incident occurred at the popular Five Junction of Orho-Agbarho in Ughelli North Local Government Area of the state. Eyewitnesses told Daily Sun that the vigilante and the deceased had placed a bet on a pack of cards they were playing with huge sum of money to be won. According to them, the vigilance group man lost the game and when the winner insisted that his money be given to him, he refused. Sources said when he could not get the money, the security man rushed to his house to take his gun and shot his friend to death.
They said when the deceased’s twin brother heard of the incident, he mobilized his relations to apprehend the culprit. Daily Sun further gathered that as soon as the alleged killer was apprehended, he was taken along with the deceased’s lifeless body to Five Junction, where they set him ablaze after beating him mercilessly. Still gripped with fury, the brother to the deceased was said to have then dismembered the charred body of the vigilante and threw the parts around the five junctions before he started eating them.
Investigations revealed that anti-crime policemen from Agbarho along with some soldiers later came to the scene and shot the man who ate the body parts. It was gathered that he later died in police custody. However, during the sporadic shooting by the police and the military team at the scene, three persons were killed by stray bullets. Thus, a total of six people died during the particular incident. Meanwhile, Agbarho has been deserted, as tension and uncertainty pervaded the community.
