A popular trader at Eke-Ozzi in Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area of Enugu was reportedly killed weekend while on his way to Nsukka in a mysterious circumstance.
The victim, Mr Ogbu Fredrick, alias Add More, from Umuogiri Eze, Ogrute, Enugu-Ezike, allegedly met his death at Nsukka, where his body was dumped by the hillside, near the Fire Service office.
The trader was said to be a butcher before he “began the business of selling animal feeds alongside his wife at Eke Ozzi market, along Amufie road, after falling sick that kept him down for about six years,’ a family source said.
According to his relation, who did not want his name mentioned, “Add More went to Obollo-Afor in the morning of Saturday to purchase animal feeds. When he came back to his shop, he got a call to go to Nsukka to buy more feeds. He then left for Nsukka to buy the animal feeds and met his untimely death on his way. No one knows what happened yet.”
It was gathered that there were machete cuts on his legs with some cloths tied on the affected areas. It was further gathered that a huge sum of money in his possession was kept beside him, alongside his phone reportedly without a sim card. His motorcycle was also untouched.
The matter was reported to the Nsukka Area Command of the Nigeria Police, where investigations were ongoing to unravel the cause of the death.
An okada rider plying the route of the incident, Ifedi Apeh, opined that the deceased might have been killed by a hit-run-vehicle, although he could not explain why one of the victim’s legs was almost cut into two.
The police public relations officer of the Enugu State Police Command, ASP Daniel Ndukwe, did not respond to questions sent to him through SMS by our correspondent for clarifications.
Recall that two communities of Ette and Umuopu in the same Igbo-Eze North LGA were the epincentre of the recent mysterious deaths of about 57 persons, which were later confirmed to have been caused by an outbreak of yellow fever.
