Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Loveth Odah, said knife cuts were found on the body of the deceased.
“An unidentified body of a lady was found at Nkwoagu area in Abakaliki Local Government Area of Ebonyi State. The body of the lady was found stark naked although her clothes and slippers were found near her.
She was not just raped, she was also butchered with a knife. There were knife cuts all over her body especially the neck part of and left stark naked.
“With that kind of machete cut, she was supposed to be in the pool of her blood but there was no blood seen around there which may be that the act might have been committed somewhere else and they now carried her from there and dumped her body at the location where the police found her.
Nobody has come to identify her body. She was evacuated and deposited at the mortuary at FETHA II. Nobody has come to identify her as their own,” she stated.
