An 86-year-old man, Pa Daniel Attah, has been murdered in his farm by unknown persons at Umuida, Igboeze North Local Government Area of Enugu State.
Attah was reportedly killed few days ago but his remains were discovered in a shallow grave last Wednesday, after frantic search by members of his Umuoyiga community, Umuida.
Daily Sun gathered that some parts of his organs were already severed. A search party was organised when the old man, who left for his farm in the morning, did not come back for two days.
The search team comprising mainly youths of the community had reportedly discovered his remains in a shallow grave where he was buried with his face facing the ground.
One of his daughters, Amaka Daniel Attah told newsmen that “criminals have taken our pride.”
He left for his farm on Saturday but did not return home as usual. We searched for him everywhere for two days, only to discover his decomposing body in a shallow grave where the hoodlums also tried to cover the body with palm fronds.
“Some parts of his body were no longer intact when we found him. The evil doers will never go unpunished.”
It was further gathered from neighbours that the deceased was the head of Umuoyiga clan, where the Chairman of the local government area, Comrade Uwakwe Ezeja, hails from.
Their opinion was that some people killed the octogenarian ostensibly for rituals.
They said that it was Ezeja, who alerted security agents, including police personnel from Enugu Ezike Division, before they deposited his body at an undisclosed hospital mortuary, while investigation commenced.
Neighbours said the late Attah, was still agile and doing his farm works effectively before he was gruesomely murdered.

N168bn Fraud: Hushpuppi Hires Top Chicago Criminal Lawyer
Ramon Abbas, the Dubai-based Nigerian arrested last month for alleged Internet fraud, has secured the service of a top criminal defence attorney in Chicago.
Court documents seen by PREMIUM TIMES showed Mr Abbas on Monday retained Gal Pissetzky, a senior partner at Chicago law firm Pissetzky & Berliner, to help extricate him from multi-million dollar fraud charges levelled against him by American authorities.
Mr Abbas, an Instagram sensation widely known as Hushpuppi, was arrested alongside dozens of his alleged co-conspirators following an overnight raid of his apartments in Dubai on June 10. Emirati police and prosecutors said about N16 billion was found in cash out of an estimated N168 billion online scams linked to the syndicate.
Following initial tussle over his custody between Nigeria and the United States, Mr Abbas was ultimately handed over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) on July 2. He arrived in the U.S. on July 3 and made an initial court appearance in Chicago.
Although American prosecutors said Mr Abbas would still be transferred to Los Angeles “in the coming weeks”, he has decided to hire a top lawyer in Chicago to guide him through the process of transfer to Los Angeles.
Mr Pissetzky made the first appearance on behalf of Mr Abbas at the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on July 6, documents showed.
Mr Pissetzky was called to the bar in 2002 and has practiced in Chicago since 2002. His firm’s website said he has been retained in high-profile cases and also widely recognised by major American media outlets as a legal consultant on serious criminal matters.
Already, court hearings have commenced for Mr Abbas to be removed from Chicago to Los Angeles where he was indicted on June 25 and a warrant issued for his arrest.
Mr Abbas has successfully argued for an adjournment of his removal hearing from July 7 to July 13, according to court documents.
The removal process appeared to have made it difficult for Mr Abbas to enter a plea, several days after he arrived on American soil. His plea may not be taken and he may not be entitled to bail until his matter is transferred to Los Angeles for proper prosecution.
Mr Pissetzky would likely counsel Mr Abbas through the removal process in Chicago, but it was unclear whether or not he would follow the suspect to Los Angeles. The attorney was not available for comments when PREMIUM TIMES reached his office on Tuesday.
I’m Ready To Pray For COVID-19 Patients In Isolation Centres Around The World — T.B Joshua
Pastor Temitope Joshua of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) has said that he is ready to virtually offer prayer for COVID-19 patients in isolation centres around the world.
In an announcement posted to Joshua’s YouTube channel, Emmanuel TV, the cleric called on relevant government and medical authorities to “organise those who are in isolation” and “arrange how to connect them to us on Emmanuel TV”.
“The blessing of Jesus is for those who knock and ask,” he said in the announcement, adding, “In whatever way you support to make this happen, we are a team; we are not doing more than you”.
“Together we shall pray for them. Together we shall be set free from this COVID-19,” the statement continued, quoting the Biblical reference in Luke 4:40 where Jesus healed “all who had various kinds of sickness after the mass prayer.”
“The same anointing that heals one is also able to heal all at the same time,” it concluded, calling on all interested parties to contact the church via their email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last week, the World Health Organisation reacted to a trending video in which a Cameroonian medical doctor was ‘healed’ from COVID-19 after receiving “interactive prayer” from Joshua’s ministry, acknowledging “spiritual leadership is very important in a time like this”.
His testimony was followed days later by a couple of university lecturers who equally acknowledged receiving healing from the dreaded virus, replete with medical reports before and after prayers from Emmanuel TV.
Since starting its ‘Interactive Prayer’ – in which online prayer is offered via video calls – Joshua’s ministry has prayed for COVID-19 patients from around the world including citizens of USA, South Africa, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Honduras and Cuba.
