One Miss Chinenye Aroh, woman in her late 30s is currently battling for survival after she was brutally attacked by unknown assailants at Amaeze community in Ishiagu, Ivo local government area of Ebonyi.

The victim was reportedly attacked at a remote farm at Ugwueziavo, in Amaeze and left death by her assailants.

Aroh who was found lying in the pool of her own blood unconscious was however rescued and taken to an Nyeche hospital, Ishiagu for medical treatment.

Mr Uchenna Anyim, former chairman of Amaeze community told our reporter said that the incident has left the entire community bewildered and confused.

Anyim who said that the community has reported the incident to the Ivo Divisional Police Headquarters described the attack as ‘callous and barbaric’ saying that the community would not spare any effort to unmask perpetrators.

“The incident happened on Monday at Ugwueziavo and we have reported the incident to the police which have commenced investigation into the attack.

“The victim has not died, though she’s in serious pains and has been in intensive care unit battling for survival.

“The entire community is in shock over the incident and we have vowed to uncover the perpetrator of this evil act against our sister,” Anyim said.

Miss Christy Aja, a close relative of the victim who spoke to our correspondent said that the incident happened around 6:a.m adding that the suspects trailed their victim to a farm at Ugwueziavo where they unleached several machete cuts on her before fleeing.

“She left very early for the farm because she usually leaves early in the morning anytime she wants to go to farm and there were few people going to farm by that time.

“From what we gathered from her, the suspects speak Izzi or Ezza dialect.

“My sister is not the trouble type or somebody that keeps many friends; she keeps to her self, we wonder why some people would want to kill her in cold blood, ” Aja said

Mrs Loveth Odah, Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) when contacted, confirmed the incident saying that preliminary investigation into the attack has commenced.

“We have report from the Police Divisional Headquarters, Ivo LGA that a woman was severely attacked, left for death after been inflicted with several machete cuts by her assailants.

“The police have commenced investigation into the attack and we assure the public especially relatives of the victim that perpetrators of the dastardly act will be fished out and made to face justice,” Odah said.
