Yahoo Plus: Suspected ritualist attacks mum with knife in Imo

Residents of Hero’s Apartment, opposite Concorde Hotel, New Owerri, Imo State, were shocked in the early hours of Monday, when a mother, Mrs. Eziada Chika Mbachu, who was invited by his 38 years old son, name withheld, was attacked and inflicted with several knife cuts when his alleged plans to kill the woman for ritual purposes failed.

One of the neighbours, who apprehended the suspected ritualist, told reporters that the woman who suspected foul play through the actions of the son, started screaming and raising the alarm, which prompted the people to come to her rescue.
