The suspect identified as, Chukwuebuka Umunna, allegedly opened his grandfather, Anusiem Umunna's head today, June 11, 2016, in a fit of anger after the 100-year-old man dared to advise him.

Sunday Sun reports that Chukwuebuka's younger brother, Chigaemezu Umunna, had disclosed that the incident had taken place after the deceased asked the suspect to fetch bamboo sticks to support the yam tendrils in their farm.

He went on to add that the suspect had ordered him out of the house, with a threat to deal with him seriously if he did otherwise, only for him to return to find their grandfather dead in his seat with a machete buried deep in his head.

Chigamezu immediately raised an alarm attracting neighbours to the scene to witness the sacrilegious and dastardly act.

Their father, son of the deceased, Mr. Julian Umunna, revealed how Chukwuebuka had dropped out of secondary school, as other efforts to help him make something of himself were frustrated.

He said:

“Chukwuebuka has been uncon­trollable and stubborn and he smokes Indian hemp openly and bullies anybody who cautions him. He was quarrelling with my father when I was going to work that morning. I was shocked to hear a few hours later that he had killed my father with a machete. It was a very sad incident because such a thing had never happened in this entire village.”

“This is a murder case and the police are still investigat­ing the matter and as soon the investigation is concluded the suspect will be charged to court."

The souls of he departed rest in peace.
