A murder suspect on Tuesday killed a woman and ate part of her fresh before a mob pounced on him and killed him.
Chikwawa police station officer Rhoda Mawale identified the victim as Eliza Lupiya, 45 who hailed from Liwonde Village in Chief Katunga’s area in the district.
Mawale said the suspect chopped off her head after the murder and opened her stomach from where he ate intestines and fresh from her chin.
“It was a gruesome murder, you would not want to see the mutilated body,” said Mawale.
She said soon after the murder and the harvesting of some of the organs from the woman’s body, an irate mob run after the suspect, pounced on him and killed.
“As police we condemn the murder of the suspect through mob justice in strongest terms. We might not even be able to find out why he did that,” said the station officer.
She said the law enforcers are yet to establish whether the suspect was insane or not when he committed the crime.
Mawale said investigations on the murder have began though both the suspect and the victim are dead.
She also said no one has been arrested in connection with the mob justice on the suspect.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
