EVIL ENTERS EHUGBO… This is the body of an innocent boy of about 5 years old, who disappeared a few days ago in Amaokwu Amangballa, Afikpo North LGA of Ebonyi State.
A search was started for him, with the deployment of auctioneers, young people and an alleged complaint at the police station.
However, the residents of Amaokwu Amangballa woke up today to see the innocent boy’s corpse in Amaokwu Amangballa himself; allegedly strangled by the unknown killer and dumped to be seen by passers-by.
Who could do this to an innocent child? This is barbaric, heinous and condemnable! How did this evil come to mankind that even innocent children could be strangled and dumped to be seen by bereaved parents? OH, WHAT A WICKED.
