Herdsmen Behead Adamawa PDP Chairman, Flee With Head
“His attackers led by our Fulani neighbours repeatedly stabbed him on the back and on his stomach before beheading my husband in our farm and made away with his head.”
Fulani herdsmen are at it again.
They have snuffed out the life of the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Bare ward in the Numan Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Charles Chrisanthus.
Not only did they behead him, they went away with the head.
The politician was reportedly killed in the presence of his wife, Dorcas, on his farm on August 29, 2018.
The widow of the slain PDP chieftain is, however, accusing the police of shielding the killers of her husband.
Speaking at the State Criminal Investigation Department where she had gone to lodge her complaint on Tuesday, September 4th, Dorcas told Northern City News that justice for her slain husband would bring her peace.
She said she was holding her four-month old son and watched helplessly as the assailants hacked her husband to death.
“His attackers led by our Fulani neighbours repeatedly stabbed him on the back and on his stomach before beheading my husband in our farm and made away with his head,” she said.
Claiming to have made some arrests, the police had invited the widow of the slain ward chairman, and three other female witnesses to the state Criminal Investigation Department for their statements.
It was at the CID that the families of the deceased were alerted to the whereabouts of the suspected killers.
The bereaved families, it was learnt, discovered that some of the suspects arrested in connection with the killing were receiving medical attention at an undisclosed hospital.
Dorcas said she could identify her husband’s killers, insisting that the police were shielding them from answering for their crime.
