Police authorities in Enugu State, have arrested a man identified as Somadina Orji, for allegedly killing his mother, Charity Orji and dumping her body in a shallow grave behind their house in Umuagu Inyi town in Oji River local government area of the state.
The spokesman of Enugu command, Daniel Ndukwe, told BBC Igbo that the Force has commenced investigation into the crime committed by the suspect.
Speaking on the incident, Mr. Anoliefo, President General of Umuagu Inyi, told BBC Igbo that Mrs Charity Orji was killed on Sunday night, December 3, 2023.
“It was last Sunday night that a young man killed his mother and buried her body in the back of the house near where they bathe.
“It was Monday morning when a villager saw blood in the back of the house where the young man and his mother lived, he screamed and called the security forces.
“When people gathered, the young man was arrested and started asking him where the blood came from. He said it was the blood of his mother whom he killed at night.
“When he was asked where his body was, he took them to the back of the house where he buried his mother’s body. Security forces and people forced him to carry his mother’s body.”
Also, Somadina reportedly confessed to killing his sister, Miss Ukamaka Orji earlier this year.
The ‘President General’ of all the communities under Oji River, Ejike Ilo Tasie, said he found out that the man who brutally murdered his mother had taken a drug.
He added that they would begin to identify all those who sell drugs in any form to get them arrested.
