The Eastern Security Network, ESN, a security wing of the Southeast Secessionist group, Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has accused of killing their native doctor,
Paschal Okeke from Umudim-Ukwu Orji, Awomama in Oru East Local Government Area of Imo State, for failing to protect them from police bullets.
The Imo State Commissioner of Police’s media adviser, Mike Abattam, announced the development in a statement on Saturday.
According to the statement, the ESN shot the juju priest several times before beheading him and setting fire to the corpse and the man’s house.
The enraged fighters claimed that the native doctor prepared an impotent charm for them, which resulted in the deaths of several members during a gun battle with state security operatives.
“In Oru East LGA, Imo State, the survivors of the IPOB/ESN terror organizations shot their juju priest, Paschal Okeke of Umudim Ukwu Orji Awomama.”
“They shot him, mutilated his corpse, removed his head, and burnt the body and his house for the hopeless efficacy of the charms he had offered the group over time and the overwhelming failure to shield them from police bullets,” according to the statement.
