Suspected cultists have killed and beheaded two brothers from Rumuokparali community, in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.
The victims, identified as Ifeanyi and Emeka Wobo, were found dead with their heads severed on Tuesday, around Elekahia Housing Estate, in the same LGA. They were said to be the sons of the late Chief Oliver Wobo.
Daily Sun gathered yesterday that the gruesome murder of the two brothers has thrown the Rumuopkarali in sorrow, even as youths have called on the police to find out the perpetrators of the dastardly act and prosecute them.
A source, which pleaded anonymity, said the deceased had taken a taxi at Rumuoparali on Monday evening and the police discovered their decapitated bodies the next day.
The source further disclosed that the police found Ifeanyi’s wallet and discovered his identity card with which he was traced to the company he acquired pipeline welding skill.
The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Nnamdi Omoni, confirmed the murder, revealing that efforts were on to unravel the circumstances that led to their death.
