Cross River villagers bury man alive for allegedly killing brother

A young man, simply identified as Ojemba, has reportedly hacked his brother, named Obok, to death.

The incident occurred in a village of Liokom in Wanihem community in Yala Local Government Area of Cross River State.

An eyewitness, who gave his name as Sunday Uloko, and resides in the village, said the two brothers had no prior misunderstanding until the incident occurred.

“Ojemba is the younger one while Obok is elder. Obok came back from a burial wake-keep yesterday morning and his wife gave him some food to eat before going to the farm to stake his yams.

“While eating Ojemba took the machete which Obok had sharpened to cut yam stakes and from behind dealt three cuts on his brother and removed his head”.
