The traditional ruler of Otulu Amumara autonomous community in Ezinihitte Mbaise local government area of Imo State, Eze Joe-Benz Ochulor, has been found dead with one of his legs severed off his body.
An indigene of the area, Frank Nwaete, told LEADERSHIP that the late monarch was discovered along the Chokoneze-Mbutu Road in Aboh Mbaise local government area of the State but with one of his legs chopped off by unknown assailants.
Eze Ochulo, who until his death was the Olu 1 of Otulu-Amumara, was whisked away from his palace by gunmen on Saturday, November 25, 2023.
The attackers had invaded the traditional ruler’s palace shooting sporadically, a development that scared away villagers, who scampered to safety.
Until the discovery of the monarch’s corpse, the Ochulo family was earlier waiting for a call to pay ransom.
Already, the entire Mbaise communities have been thrown into mourning as villagers were apprehensive and scared of their safety even as some have called for measures to ensure everyone’s safety.
