Suspected herdsmen have killed a pregnant woman in Nchatancha Nike in Enugu East Council Area of Enugu State.
This comes weeks after a catholic priest, Reverend Fr. Paul Offu, was murdered along Ihe-Agbude road in Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu by men suspected to be herdsmen.
The pregnant woman, whose name has not been revealed, was attacked on her way back from the farm.
Her stomach was said to have been opened in an attempt to remove the baby.
Police in Enugu have confirmed the incident.
Members of the community have blocked the Enugu-Abakaliki Expressway to protest the murder.
