Nigeria: Mob Beheads Suspected "Witchmen" And Publicly Display Chopped Heads On The Street

At least five suspected "witchmen" have been beheaded in Rivers state Nigeria over the weekend.

The gruesome murders were reportedly carried out late Sunday night by unknown gunmen in Edeoha, Ahoada East Local Government Area of Rivers state.

The men who are suspected of practising witchcraft were reportedly hiding at the abode of a popular herbalist identified as Uwuma Ichocho, who is popular for treating gunshot victims, when their assailants caught up with them and decapitated them all.


The unknown assailants hacked off their heads, including that of the herbalist then burnt down the shrine with their corpses in it before displaying the heads of their victims on the road.

It's unclear what provoked the attack but some residents have fled in fear of a reprisal attack.
