Obadiah’s son, Cheta, was with him when he was attacked, the PUNCH reported. The son escaped and was able to inform members of the community of the development.
A community leader in the area, Chris Udeze, reportedly said there might be a link between killing and a land dispute between Nkpor and Oze community in Oyi Local Government Area. He said the community would unmask the assailants.
