Masquerader chased little boy to death on his way to school in Imo State

A teenage boy meet his untimely death after been crushed by a fast moving vehicle while he was being pursued by a masquerader, aka okorosha, at Ogbaku, Imo State.

In a bid to scare the boy some more after he took off upon sighting him, the masquerader chased him till he ran into the path of the vehicle on the Onitsha-Owerri Road.

According to eyewitness reports, after the accident had occurred, the masquerader was said to have mixed with other masqueraders, leaving the boy in a pool of blood.

An eyewitness, Mr. Linus Iwuji who spoke to the Punch correspondent, blamed the community leaders for allowing the masqueraders to roam freely on busy roads rather than restricting them to the village square.
“I blame the community leaders for allowing the masqueraders to walk about chasing people. They and their guides even rob and rape women at late hours,” Iwuji said.

Confirming the incident, Imo State Police PRO, Andrew Enwerem revealed that the police were investigating the incident.
