Kokomba warriors kill antelopes alleged to have killed 48-year-old woman

A team of Kokomba warriors and hunters at Dambai Old Town in

the Oti Region have shot dead two male antelopes they believed

killed a woman gathering mangoes on the farm.

The warriors believed the animal was lurking in the vicinity of the

incident and was likely to attack another person, hence the

search-to-kill exercise sanctioned by Nana Ubor Gmafudal II,

Chief of Kokomba at Dambai.

Madam Bejome Jacha, 48, was head-butted by the wild antelopes

on Wednesday leading to injuries and her subsequent death

at the Hohoe Municipal hospital the next day.

precincts of the accident with the second one being killed within an hour.

He said the carcass would undergo specific rituals to appease the

soul of the deceased, who was buried last Friday.
