A middle-aged woman who was allegedly raped to coma in a farmland at Ebenebe in Awka North local government area of Anambra State by suspected herdsmen has reportedly died in her home state of Ebonyi.
The woman, whose name was given as Agnes Okekpe from Abakaliki local government area, was hired by a farmer in the community to harvest some crops in their farmland. While working in the farm in December 2019, two herdsmen who came with herds of cattle gang-raped her till she lost consciousness.
She was later taken to her state by her relations for treatment where she recently died.
President-general of Ebenebe, Mr. Paul Nnatuanya, while narrating the story, said the woman’s ordeal is no different from what his people have been experiencing, in addition to the destruction of farmlands by suspected herdsmen.
