Pandemonium broke out in Awka-Etiti area of Anambra state after a businessman simply identified as Ebuka, was humiliated and disgraced after being accused of killing a boy who in the area.
According to report, the boy was said to have stolen biscuits from the man's shop in the company of his younger brother.
According to a report by Eyewitness, trouble began when his skin and that of his brother began to rot. The parents made some attempts to inquire the root of the problem through spiritual means and it was gathered that the businessman "had a hand in it".
Reports reveal that the dealer who dedicated his shop to some deities in Ukpor in Anambra State was demanding for the sum of N15m. About N475,000 was paid (according to an eyewitness) but all attempts to save the life of the boy proved abortive as he gave up before the parents, Ebuka and the deity within the week.
The leaders of Awka-Etiti therefore swung into action to arrest the businessman as they paraded him unclad, locked his shop and seized his goods.
