A woman identified as Mrs Pat Ngwu from Ndiuno Nchatancha community in Emene, Enugu who was abducted from her farmland by suspected bandits on Wednesday was found dead in a bush near  a stream Thursday morning.

Eyewitness accounts said several machete cuts were found on the lifeless body of the woman, who went to her farm Wednesday afternoon with a wheelbarrow to harvest cassava but never returned home. 

It was gathered that when the deceased could not return home her husband raised an alarm and a search party was organised to look out for her.

The search in the farmland and nearby bush Wednesday night yieded no result as only the wheelbarrow and her matchete were seen.

According to the eyewitnesses, information was received from passersby Thursday morning that the mutilated corpse of a woman was dumped by a stream in the area.

When the youths rushed to the place they discovered that it was the missing woman that was killed. 

"We found several machete cuts on her body including the head and neck with her pant removed and we are suspecting that she must have been attacked and raped by bandits in the bush," a native of Nchatancha said.

However, the development led to a violent protest in Nchatancha and Obinagu communities on Thursday as youths from the area who were extremedy angered by the murder of the woman took to the streets.

They marched through the streets and blocked the Enugu -Abakaliki highway at Eke Obinagu market area and Annunciation Hospital junction, burning tyres and beating people including travelers. 

Some vehicles were reportedly damaged by the youths who threatened to go after the bandits wherever they reside within the community to revenge the woman's death.

Security operatives from Emene Police Division were said to have brought the situation under control and later took the corpse of the woman to Annunciation Hospital mortuary in Emene.

When contacted, the spokesman of Enugu State Police Command, SP Ebere Amaraizu, said the command has already commenced investigations into the murder of the woman.

He said: "Following the report of the incident of alleged murder case of a woman inside a farm land at Nchatancha community in Emene, Enugu state received by the command today (Thursday),  the Commissioner of Police,  Suleiman Balarabe has directed full scale investigations with a view to establishing what actually happened and persons involved and their motives amongst others.

"The command further advises members of the public  to continue to be law abiding and avoid any thing that will truncate the existing peace and security in the state as security operatives will leave no stone unturned towards unmasking those behind the dastardly act.

"Meanwhile, the corpse of the said deceased woman has been deposited at the mortuary of the Annunciation hospital for autopsy."
