According to reports, the suspected ritualists attacked Ikpechi on his farm, beheaded him and them carted away some of his body parts on Thursday January 17th. His dismembered body was found inside a sack on Friday morning around Ositelu street, in Ogere-Remo.
According to the Secretary of Igede community, Ogere Remo, Mr Michael Ekirigwe, the search for the deceased began on Thursday evening when his neighbours noticed his sudden disappearance and calls put through to his mobile line were not picked. “We are very sad and disillusioned with the dastard killing of one of us, in fact we are very pained that a man quietly working in his farm not too far away from his house could be brutally killed like animals, what then is the fate of those whose farms are very far to the town?” Ekirigwe said.
