Residents of Ikot Ekpene road area of Aba, Abia State are now in panic mood following the discovery of a dead body at Bata junction off factory road, along Aba-Owerri road in the early hours of Tuesday, reports ABCNews.
A source who spoke to ABN TV on the condition of anonymity disclosed that the private part of the middle-aged man was cut off by his assailants, adding that a part of his body that looks like his balls was found by his side.
The source expressed dissatisfaction over the incident, wondering why a team of the Nigerian Army personnel who are just few meters away from the scene could not arrest the perpetrators of the heinous crime.
All efforts to reach the PPRO Abia State Command, Geoffry Ogbonna proved abortive.
There has been heightened insecurity in most recent times in Aba and Umuahia.
Recently, the Abia state governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu ordered the immediate closure of some brothels in Umuahia, suspected to be hideouts for criminal gangs terrorizing the residents of the capital city.
