A middle-aged man has been arrested by the police in Benue State for allegedly killing a 56-year-old woman in her farm and preparing pepper soup with her head after chopping it off.

The woman, late Mrs. Priscilla Adoga, was said to have gone to her farm at Ochekpo Ette Igwe Uwokwu in Oju Local Government Area of the State at about 9.am on Tuesday, August 19 and met her alleged assailant identified as Ujere Ogbwe making heaps on her farmland.

Apparently oblivious that Ogbwe was a harbinger of death, she confronted and asked him to stop working on her land. It turned out to be an error of judgment that consumed her life.

She was gruesomely macheted to death by Ogbwe who allegedly chopped off her head, sliced it into pieces and prepared pepper soup with it.

Scudnews learnt when the woman did not return home after hours of waiting, her husband’s nephew, Mr. Igiri Silas Alaye, lodged a complaint with the police.

Ironically, both the victim and her assailant hail from the same community – Ochekpo Ette Igwe Uwokwu, Oju Local Government Area of Benue State.

The police said the incident was being treated as a case of culpable homicide and cannibalism.
