Police in Benue State have arrested a man identified as Raphael Agazi for beheading one Ajah Esim for reason yet to be known.

The suspect was arrested on his way to Ijekun in Obi Local Government Area of the state after he was caught with a bag where he kept the head.247newsnaija.jpg

Though the reason for his action was unknown, one report, however, said that the suspect might be one of those who deal in sale of human parts and might be heading to Ijekun to sell the head.

Another report said that both the deceased and the suspect had been at loggerheads for some time over a piece of land until early Monday when the duo met on the same land where he overpowered the deceased and severed  his head.

The suspect was said to have buried the body of the deceased in a shallow grave after he cut the head.

Area Commander of Otukpo, ACP Samuel Drakoji, who spoke to Tribune Online on phone, confirmed the incident, but said that the suspect’s statement was incoherent which made it difficult to know why he killed the man.

Drakoji added that he had sent his men to the bush to recover the body.

Benue State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Austin Ezeani,  confirmed the incident, saying that the case was still with the Area Commander in Otukpo.
