She was on her farm that particular day when armed men suspected to be Fulani herdsmen attacked her.

The middle-aged woman, whose identity is yet to be revealed, cried for help but there was no one to rescue as the assailants forced her to the ground, raped and chopped her head off her body.

The incident was said to have occurred at Ukpenu in Ekpoma, Esan South-West Local Government Area of Edo State.

Reports suggest the incident angered some youths in the area who barricaded a major road with burning tyres to protest the murder of the woman.

The Police are investigating the matter.
