A mother of four identified as Nnenna Sunday, Friday, allegedly slaughtered her neighbour’s three-year-old son in Ebonyi state.

The said Nnenna was said to have gone berserk when she picked up a machete to fight the mother of the deceased who is her neighbour.

The incident happened on Friday morning, at No. 1 Unity FM Road, Abakaliki, the Ebonyi state capital.

In an interaction with the mother of the deceased, Favour Akata, at the Alex Ekwueme Federal Teaching Hospital Abakaliki, where she rushed the baby, hoping he would survive, said there was no issue between her and the said neighbour.

Mrs Akata stated that on Friday morning while she was washing clothes in front of her house, she reminded the woman’s child that it was her turn to sweep the compound, but the girl left without saying anything.

“When I was done with the washing and stood up to spread cloths, I saw the woman with machete standing very close to my door step. She said if I say I’m a woman, I should come and continue washing the clothes. My son was just at the door step and I rushed to go and carry my baby. But she got him before me. That was how she used the machete on my baby’s head, and she cut it almost into two.

“The woman sometimes behaves insane, our landlord had given them quit notice, but the husband refused to leave. There was a time she wounded the husband with machete and we told him to take her to the village and remove the knife from their house, but he wouldn’t listen. 

“She has four children, but she didn’t start by killing them, it is me that has only two that she came and killed one”, she lamented.

Police confirmed the incident. The command’s spokesperson, DSP Loveth Odah, said the woman has been arrested and would be charged to court for murder.

“We are law enforcement agency, it is not in our hands to determine whether she is mentally sick or not. She will be sent to hospital where that can be ascertained.

“After killing the little boy, she was ready to kill more if not for the quick intervention of the police.  We will do everything possible to ensure that justice prevails. The deceased family should remain claim,” she said.

Odah warned against keeping someone who has mental problem and is violent in the midst of sane people.

An Oregon woman’s black and tan coonhound earned a Guinness World Record when each of her ears was measured at 12.38 inches long.

Guinness said Lou, a 3-year-old canine belonging to Paige Olsen, officially has the longest ears on a dog (living).

Olsen said she always knew Lou’s ears were “extravagantly long,” but she only decided to measure them while sheltering in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“All black and tan coonhounds have beautiful long ears, some are just longer than others,” Olsen, a veterinary technician, told Guinness.

Olsen said Lou’s especially long ears have not led to any medical complications for the canine.

“Of course everyone wants to touch the ears, they’re very easy to fall in love with with just one sighting,” she said.

Olsen said Lou is also a competitor at dog shows and has earned titles from the American Kennel Club and Rally Obedience.

Tanks head for Kosovo-Serb border as Balkans tensions grow

A Kosovo security unit trooper guards the border with Serbia as the Balkan nations trade accusations.

Kosovo’s Prime Minister Albin Kurti has accused neighbouring Serbia of “provoking a serious international conflict”, with tensions between the two countries at their highest for years.

In the latest flashpoint, two interior ministry offices in northern Kosovo were on Saturday attacked near border crossings blocked by local Serbs angered by a ban on cars with Serbian licence plates entering the country.

The car registration office in the town of Zubin Potok was set ablaze, and two hand grenades were thrown at the civil registration office in the nearby town of Zvecan, though they did not go off, police said.

There was no mention of any casualties.

Serbs from Kosovo’s north have blocked two main roads near the border since the government ban went into force on Monday.

Drivers from Serbia must now use temporary printed registration details that are valid for 60 days.

The Kosovo government says its move mirrors measures in force in Serbia against drivers from Kosovo since 2008, when Kosovo declared independence from their neighbour.

Serb fighter planes flew close to the border crossing of Jarinje where protesters cheered them. A day before, three helicopters also flew in the vicinity.

Media in Belgrade reported that tanks and other military equipment were heading towards the border, but the Serb army did not give any details.

NATO’s mission in Kosovo, where peacekeepers maintain a fragile peace, called for restraint.
