Son Kills Mother In Anambra Over Failed Attempt To Grab Younger Brother’s Land

Here is the full details of a viral report of a man who murdered his mother in Anambra yesterday.

The people of Okpunoeze village in Uraugu community of Nnewi, Anambra, were on Wednesday thrown into mourning over the murder of Mrs Bene Ikegwuonwu, 70, by her son, Chinedu Ikegwuonwu, 40.

The incident occurred at about 8AM after an altercation between the duo over a piece of land belonging to the suspect’s younger brother.

A source, who pleaded anonymity, said the deceased was cooking when her son allegedly approached surreptitiously from behind and slit her throat with a machete.

“The suspect left the house immediately after the incident, leaving behind his wife and son,” the source added.

The late woman is said to be blessed with four boys and three girls, one of who died recently in a fatal accident.

A family member, who pleaded anonymity, said the suspect returned to Nnewi from a failed business in Aba, Abia.

The source said that the suspect had had a running battle with his mother over his attempt to grab his younger brother’s land.

The woman gave Chinedu some money to raise the foundation of his building because he was unable to do anything about it after a year and half.

“She even went to the extent of taking money from her late daughter’s bank account for the suspect to complete his building after which he then turned around to take over a portion of land belonging to his younger brother,” the source said.

When contacted, Mr Haurna Mohammed, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), a Superintendent of Police (SP), confirmed the incident, noting that the police had launched an investigation into the case.

  1. Lord have mercy! Killing your mother over what does not belong to you! I am imagining him as a politician, no end to the havoc he will wreck. If this thing could so do his mother, what will be the fate of his wife? These are the kind of relatives that go about inheriting their brothers and throwing the wife and children to the streets. He must have been configured from hell.
