Gunmen

A heavily pregnant woman, whose name could not be immediately ascertained, is currently battling for life at the Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, after being brutally attacked by unknown persons who left her completely naked, with serious machete cuts on her neck.

The woman, who is in her 20s and who was bleeding profusely and lying helpless until she was rescued by a team of policemen from Central Police Station, Abakaliki Ebonyi State, was found inside a school farm belonging to Girls’ High School Azuiyiokwu, in Abakaliki local government area of Ebonyi State.

Teachers and students of the school had gone to the farm last Friday afternoon for farming activities when they shockingly beheld the woman lying in the pool of her blood. They immediately alerted the police who came and took her to the hospital where she is currently being revived.

Some of the teachers who spoke with the victim said that the woman could barely talk and when she did, she talked between heavy breaths as she gasped for air.

As at the time of filling in this report, it was not certain if the poor woman had escaped being used for rituals or raped.

Though the woman could not speak, the state Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Loveth Odah, who confirmed the incident said she was responding to treatment. She noted that efforts were in top gear to arrest the perpetrators of the act.
