Abia State Police Command has confirmed the beheading of a member of the Abia State Vigilante Service.

The Command also dismissed claims that its men were involved in “trial by ordeal” through juju.

In a press statement by Maureen Chinaka, the Public Relation Officer, on behalf of the Commissioner of Police, the police read, “Yesterday 26/10/2023, at about 15:50 hrs, Abia State Police officers stationed at Osisioma Police Headquarters received credible information concerning an attack on a group of security personnel in Isiahia village, Umuojima, Osisioma.

“The attacked team included one policeman, one special Constabulary personnel, and three vigilante men.

“Upon arrival, an unregistered Toyota Sienna bus and a headless corpse were discovered. Through investigation, the deceased was identified as Obinna Ndukwe, also known as Socket, who was a member of the Abia State Vigilante and often collaborated with the police. The body of the deceased has been evacuated and deposited in the mortuary.”
