We gathered that the young man, whose identity could not be ascertained at the moment reportedly killed the victim in her farm, cut off her head and left her body in the farm.
A source told this reporter that relatives of the victim were worried after the woman could not return from her farm.
“They traced her to the farm and discovered her headless body in the farm. Shockingly, when they got home, they discovered the head with her step son,” an eyewitness told our reporter on phone.
He added that the prompt intervention of policemen from the Otukpa area command prevented the suspect from being lynched by angry mob.
The suspect who admitted committing the crime was subsequently taking to the area command in Makurdi, the Benue State capital for further interrogation.
