Tragedy struck in Ebonyi community as five persons whose names were yet to be identified from Ali Ugwele in Ekoli-Edda of Afikpo South Local Government Area of Ebonyi State were allegedly killed by assailants and their lifeless bodies eaten by their killers.

Investigation revealed that the victims were killed while harvesting cassava from their farm by assailants that allegedly came in from Cross River over a renewed crisis that existed between the two states.

Sources told newsmen that the assailants attacked, killed and allegedly ate up the lifeless bodies of their victims as a way to cover up any trace of their nefarious activities in the area.
Recall that Ali Ugwele village in Ekoli-Edda Community of Afikpo South LGA of Ebonyi State and Erei community in Biasa LGA of Cross River State have been having disagreement over the control and ownership of the palm tree plantation which had lasted for some years.

It was gathered that one of the victims of the attack that narrowly escaped, was the person that gave insight into the ugly development.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of Afikpo South LGA, Dr. Eni Uduma Chima, who expressed sadness over the unfortunate incident, noted that efforts were on to ensure the security of lives of the people of Ekoli-Edda Community.

He pointed out that he would not fold his arms and allow miscreants to unsettle the peace in the affected community.
