Mrs Cordelia Utazi, popularly known as Oyee Eze, was hacked to death by suspected Fulani herdsmen on Monday while weeding her farm with her daughter, Onyinye.

Vanguard quoted a source saying that the deceased’s daughter had drawn the attention of her late mother to the presence of the armed herdsmen before fleeing the scene to alert other villagers when she felt that they would be attacked.

The source said, “They were weeding in the farm when her daughter looked up and saw herdsmen with their cattle on their farm. The daughter, Onyinye, saw the herdsmen moving very fast towards their direction and took to her heels.

“The mother, Cordelia Utazi, also wanted to run but the herdsmen shot her. When they got to where she was lying helpless, they used cutlass to cut off her hands. They equally used something to smash her skull. It was the daughter who ran to the village to inform others of what had happened to her mother

“In that state of confusion, the villagers rushed to the scene and discovered the woman in a pool of her blood. Before they could reach there, the herders had disappeared into nearby bushes with their cattle. It was a terrible incident in our community.”
