A marriage ceremony at Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State turned sour at the weekend when the cake designer whose name could not be ascertained as at the time of filing this report was butchered by a man popularly called Sunny.
The man who is now in police custody, was said to have been laying ambush for the lady for two weeks, unfortunately on that fateful day, she was on her way to Agbor-Nta to deliver a cake for a wedding when he attacked her.
According to an eye witnesses who hails from the community, the lady came from Asaba where she lived to that particular spot along Agbor-Sakponba Road, where the suspect dragged her out of her Ash Color Toyota saloon car and descended on her.
The assailant laid ambush on the woman between Aliagwai and Agbor-Nta communities, and as soon as he saw her car approaching, he emerged from his hiding place and blocked the road, a move which forced her to apply the brakes.
The victim was said to have beckoned on him, but when he got close, he opened the door, smashed her windscreen with his sharp cutlass.
“When the woman came down to ask what was amiss, the man descended on her with his cutlass,” the eye witness said.
Another source, however, said that the killer opened the door of the vehicle and dragged the woman out, pulled out a cutlass and started cutting her to pieces and she kept screaming till she fell down and died.
“The assailant was so callous. He used a cutlass to cut her ear, stomach, buttocks, back, laps and spread her legs on the road, exposing her private parts. We have never seen a thing like this before,” the source lamented.
According to the source, on sighting what was happening, a mob quickly descended on the killer with the intent of killing him, he was however saved by the police, who took him away.
“When the mob gathered and saw the lifeless woman in the pool of her blood, they attacked the assailant who was still holding his cutlass stained with blood.
