A villager who spoke to reporters on condition of anonymity because he was not permitted to speak to the media, said the woman had no blood stain as to be said to be hacked down by assailants.

The source said, “It happened in the morning of Tuesday. The woman was killed and dumped in the bush along Amaraku-Umudim Road. She was pregnant and was stripped naked of her upper wear.

“But the confusing thing is that she did not sustain any blood stain as to link her death to assassins or gunmen. We are yet to find out exactly what led to her death.”

When contacted, the Imo State Police Command’s spokesman, Henry Okoye, said he had yet to be briefed on the matter but promised to revert reporters as soon as the command got information on it.

He did not get back to our correspondent as of the time of filing this report.
