Five indigenes of Ali Ugwele in Nigeria whose names were yet to be identified were allegedly killed by assailants and their lifeless bodies eaten by their killers.
Newsmen gathered that the victims were killed while harvesting cassava from their farm by assailants that allegedly came in from Cross River over a renewed crisis between the two states.
According to sources, the assailants attacked, killed and allegedly ate up the lifeless bodies of their victims as a way to cover up any trace of their nefarious activities in the area.
One of the victims of the attack that narrowly escaped, was said to have gave insight into the ugly development.
