Tragic events have occurred in the Nkerefi community in Enugu State’s Nkanu East Local Government Area when one of the laborers engaged to work in the field killed four female farmers.

The incident occurred on Tuesday, June 20, 2023, while the women and others were working in their farms, according to BBC News Igbo.

It was learned that one of the three young guys hired from Ezza in Ebonyi State by a woman in the hamlet to work in a rice farm was the murderer.

The three young guys were busy working at the section they were employed for, while the woman and dozens of others were working in their various farms, it was discovered.

According to a villager named David Ani, trouble arose when the woman who hired the laborers provided them with food around noon for a break before continuing their work.

“After the three men finished eating, the laborer who would later become the killer excused himself to use the restroom. However, he stayed in the bush for over 30 minutes, raising suspicions among his colleagues that he might have consumed hard drugs (commonly known as mkpurummiri),” narrated Ani.

He added that their suspicions turned out to be true when the young man emerged from the forest and charged at the women with his machetes, attacking them mercilessly.

“He instantly killed four women and severely injured two others. Even the attempts by the two other labourers to stop him had little effect as he continued his menacing assault on the women.”

“After committing the crime, he fled from the forest. When news of the tragedy reached us, we used the town crier to alert everyone to look out for the assailant, but he has not been found up to this moment,” Ani stated.

He speculated that the young man’s actions were influenced by the hard drugs he consumed while in the forest, which may have damaged his brain.

The community’s traditional ruler, Igwe Luke Ogbu, expressed shock over the attack.

“I can confirm that this young man who committed this atrocity is known in this area. Although he is a stranger, everyone is familiar with him. There has never been any altercation with him in the community before this incident.

“Therefore, we will now strongly oppose the use of crystal meth (mkpurummiri) and be more vigilant about the individuals coming into our community. This tragedy will prompt us to reevaluate the events occurring here and the presence of strangers,” the monarch said.

The spokesperson for the State Police Command, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, confirmed the incident and stated that the investigation is currently underway.
