Double murder reported in Wau

BY SAMSON BONAI

A double murder has been reported in Wau, Morobe Province this week.

Police have confirmed the double murder of Menyamya and Kabwum men in Wau.

It is reported that a mentally retarded person from Memyamya killed an elderly man from Kabwum and then ate his flesh.

The relatives of the victim then retaliated and killed the mentally retarded person.

A community leader from Menyamya confirmed the killing that took place at Mambu Creek in Wau.

The leader, who did not want to be named, said the mentally retarded man had been terrorising people living around the area for sometime, and two weeks ago he killed the Kabwum man and ate his flesh.

According to the community leaders, the people searched for a missing relative and later discovered that he had been killed and his flesh cut up and roasted over the open fire and eaten by the mentally retarded person.

“The relatives of the deceased searched the surrounding bushes and came across the house of the mentally retarded man. They caught him eating the flesh of the Kabwum man. They surrounded the house and chopped his head off.

“The relatives of the Kabwum man later reported the double murder to Wau police who travelled to the murder site on Tuesday and confirmed the death of the two men and arranged for their burial the same day.”

The situation is reportedly quiet after the relatives of the mentally retarded man accepted the retaliatory killing of their kinsman for killing and eating another man.

Wau police are monitoring the situation on the ground to prevent any further trouble.
