A city councillor in Anambra state has been arrested for killing his nephew.

The mother of the deceased, Gloria Onyema said the suspect came to her house in the early hours of May 6, demanding to see the deceased.

“After the day’s business, I and my husband returned back home later in the day and was told by Nnanyere’s younger brother, Tochukwu that Chidiebere had been beating Nnanyere.
“When I went to look for Nnanyere, I saw him at Chidiebere’s flat lying helplessly on the ground with severe wounds.

“When I inquired the reason for the beating, I was told that my son stole Chidiebere’s mother’s and sister’s cell phones.

“I offered to bring N20, 000 part payment for my son to be released to me so that I can take him to hospital for treatment.

“On getting to Immaculate Hospital, Umunze for treatment, he was confirmed dead by the doctor on duty,’’ she said.

Mr Jude Umunna, an uncle to late Nnanyere Onyema said the murder act is an abomination.

The suspect is currently in police detention.

    Chidiebere should be hung by his neck. Simply because of two phones totaling 35,000 Naira he killed his nephew. The bastard is power hungry. The community should make sure the police do not release him since he is a councilor and can try to influence the police and the judge.

    This kind of thing happens when people feel too powerful and unquestionable. Can human life be equated to phones? Is this how cheap and worthless that we all have fallen. To Fulani herdsmen, their cattle is worth more than human blood. And to this fellow here, two phones worthier than the life of his nephew. Let the law teach him a lesson.

    As councillor and relative of the decease, how much are those phones compared to his cousins phone? The idiot should face the full wrath of the law.

    Gionee M5 alone is N45K. I dont want to talk about Nokia XL or Lumia. So, in short if two phones cost N35K it means they are even cheap phones, and to kill your own blood related just because of such cheap phones means you are a low life, not fit to b a councellor of a ward.

    Who were the people that even voted this Aturu-(Sheep) into that office?

    They should take him to SARS office so that they will use him for morning, afternoon and evening exercise for 6months if he still survives it, then hang him.

    I take stroll…
