There is palpable anxiety and fear in Ewu community, Esan Central local government area of Edo State, following the killing of two elderly women, Christiana Ikheloa and Fatima Emoyon, by suspected herdsmen.

The bodies of the women which showed that they have been raped before being killed were found in their various farms by a search party raised to look for them when they did not return home.

On why they suspected that Fulani herdsmen were behind the gruesome killing, daughter of one of one of the deceased who gave her name as Patience Emoyon, said cows were seen in the place where her mother’s corpse was recovered.

On his own part, son of Christiana, Robert, said the person that picked his mother’s cell phone when it was called, spoke in Hausa language.

He urged the state government to fish out the killers and rapists.

Police spokesman, DSP Moses Nkombe, confirmed the incident which she revealed occurred last week, but said he was not aware if any person has been arrested.
