Woman beaten to death over alleged witchcraft in Delta

A woman identified simply as Chukwuwezu, was reportedly beaten to death by mob over allegation of witchcraft.

The incident occurred last weekend at Mbiri Kingdom in Ika North East Local Government Area of Delta State.

A source in the community while speaking to Ika Weekly Newspaper, said that the killing of the woman was instigated by one Mr. Chukwuekwu.

The source disclosed that while the mob was beating the woman on their way to the Palace, a Police Constabulary tried to stop them to avoid killing the woman in the palace since the Obi was not at home but Mr. Chukwuekwu, who is already in Police net after he punched a Police Constabulary in his eye, had caused many havocs in Mbiri and its environs.

The body of the late woman which was at the market square, has been removed and deposited in the mortuary, while investigation is ongoing.
