Mad man hacks herbalist to death with cutlass
A man suspected to be mentally challenged man has reportedly hacked a native doctor to death with a machete in Oba Aguleri in the Anambra East Local Government Area of Anambra State, after he (the madman) was challenged for untying goat meant for sacrifice.
It was gathered by Southern City News that the unfortunate incident triggered protest in the area which led to the destruction of properties while business activities were grounded.
One of the sources, who spoke with Southern City News noted that trouble began when the herbalist, tied a goat that he bought for sacrifice to a tree and went into the market to pick other items, but did not see the goat when he returned.

The source said, “The native doctor enquired about the whereabouts of his goat as soon he noticed its sudden disappearance.
“He was informed that a madman untied it and took it to his house few kilometres away. They gave him the direction to the madman’s house and he went straight to the place.

“When he got there, he met the madman already slaughtering the goat. The madman told the herbalist that it was not only the herbalist that had a right to eat goat every day; saying it was his turn to eat the day’s goat.
“While the herbalist was still challenging the madman, the madman quickly dashed into his room and came out with a machete.

“The native doctor took to his heels on sighting the machete in the hand of the madman, but the madman pursued him and caught up with him and hacked him. The native doctor bled to death before help could come his way.”
Southern City News learnt that irate youths in the area mobilised and stormed the madman’s house to avenge the killing of their kinsman.
