Ebonyi State Police Command has said it is investigating the alleged torture and killing of a man identified as Akpoke Anyim in Ivo Local Government Area of the state.
A clip of the incident has been trending on Facebook and other social media platforms.
The clip showed Anyim’s hands tied in the back, while some men, suspected to be members of Ebubeagu, were seen hitting him with an axe.
Ayim, accused of serially robbing and sexually molesting women, was said to have later died from the injuries he sustained during the torture.
The police spokesperson, Loveth Odah, said some arrests have been made over the incident.
She confirmed that the suspects are members of the Ebubeagu managed by Ivo Local Council.
“Nobody has a right to take a life, no matter the offense the person committed. The police in totality condemned jungle justice, self-help, and brutality of any kind,” she said.
