The state Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Loveth Odah ,who confirmed the incident said the police had already been hinted.
“On 21st January 2019 at about 2:pm, a councilor from Ebonyi Local Government, Mr. Friday Nwigube, representing Onyikwa ward, came to Kpirikpiri Police Station and reported that one Ugbala Simon of about 35 years suspected to be insane man went about inflicting machete cuts on people.
“A combine team of detectives rushed to the village where they found several persons with deep machete cuts. They were rushed to Teaching Hospital Abakaliki where seven of the victims were confirmed dead by a medical Doctor, Four others were still receiving treatment but on critical condition. Police detective and youths of the community are presently looking for the man.
“Insane person is no more one person’s business, When one person is suspected to be insane, the community should come together and take the person away to the community.
” I think they have a  place to stay which is Psychiatric hospital. It is a place where a  suspected insane person is treated.
“You are talking about disorganizing the community, yes! When seven persons are already dead and two others are in critical condition, what do you expect. Police are there and since yesterday morning, they have been there. The youths of the community are also helping the police to ensure that this person is arrested.”
