Two men kill mother, father in separate incidents

The state Police Command is said to be investigating what could have led to the murders.


Two unrelated sons have killed their parents in separate incidents in Enugu state.

The state Police Command is said to be investigating what could have led to the murders, which occurred in the space of two days - Sunday, April 26, and Monday, April 27, 2015 at different locations of the state.

It was reported that the first killer, identified as Chijioke Onyeke slashed his father’s head with a machete around 6.00 pm that day, following a yet-to-be known argument at Umuaina, Umuogboagu village, in Igboeze North Local Government Area of the state.

Pulse gathered that family members who were at the scene at the time rushed the man to St. Mary’s hospital, Ogurete, Enugu Ezike, but later died due to severe injury sustained from the cuts.

Chijioke has however been arrested, and his father’s corpse deposited in the morgue of the General Hospital, Ogurute, Enugu Ezike, for autopsy.

In the same vein, another son, Chidi Agbo, from Ette Center in Igboeze North Local Government Area of Enugu State beat his mother to death. The reason for his abominable act is also yet to be ascertained.

Chidi has also been arrested.
