A Man, 70-year-old Set Ablaze In Bayelsa

A 70-year-old ex-service man identified as Anthony Hermon was yesterday discovered killed and set ablaze by his killer to hide the dastardly act in the Ewogho bush in Otuokpotu in Ogbia local government area of Bayelsa State.

Also confirmed dead in the last three days were two unidentified 32 years old man and an 18 years old girl who allegedly committed suicide along the Police Barrack in the women affairs ministry area and Azikoro town of the state capital, respectively.

LEADERSHIP gathered yesterday that security operatives attached to the state police command have launched a manhunt for the killer of the 70 years old ex-service man.

The suspected killer identified as one Didi Odudu, was alleged to have trailed the deceased to the farm located at Ewhogho bush and attacked him with a huge stick. The deceased was reported to have passed out and the suspected killer reportedly mutilated his body into small pieces.

According to some members of the community, the suspect later gathered pile of dry leaves and sticks to cover the mutilated body and set it on fire. The heavy smoke and smell of burning flesh attracted the attention of the indigenes of Otuokpotu community.

One of the villagers, Kelvin Oruoa, told LEADERSHIP that “the smell was offensive. Many youths and other elders organised a search party to know the source. We discovered the site and found the suspect with blood stains.”
