Final Year Student Killed By Family Member During Christmas Holiday In Abia State

A man identified as Chimezie Eli, has reportedly stabbed his nephew, Samuel, a final year student of Abia State College of Education Technical Arochukwu(ASCETA) to death on Boxing Day.

The incident, it was gathered, threw family members and indigenes of Abayi village in Osisioma Local Government Area of Abia State into mourning.

It was learnt it happened when Samuel returned to the village from his base in Umuahia, the state capital on December 24 , to spend the Christmas holidays with his family.

He was reported to have quarreled with the uncle’s girlfriend, though eyewitnesses couldn’t ascertain the nature of the fight.

The deceased, in his mid-twenties, was stabbed while lying in his room after the matter seemed to have died down.

Sources from the Abayi village told our reporter he was rushed out of his father’s house after being stabbed in the chest by his uncle in an attempt to save his life but he died on the way to the hospital.

“The man that stabbed him is the deceased father’s last brother. Their house is very close to the flyover. He had a little misunderstanding with his uncle’s girlfriend.

“The uncle acted like someone that was manipulated. He used a knife to stab the guy in the chest and by the time he was taken to the hospital, he was declared dead.

“The man has been arrested and is being detained at the Osisioma Police Division but efforts are ongoing to transfer him to the State CID in Umuahia, the state capital.

“The boy has started writing his final year project because he will be graduating next year’s March.

“He thought that the matter he had with the uncle’s girlfriend earlier in the day has been settled not knowing that the man is still bearing grudge in mind. While he was sleeping, the uncle went into his room and stabbed him.

“His brothers, who should have helped him, were not around but he managed to help himself out of the compound with blood gushing out from the knife wound.

“By the time he got to the Osisioma junction, he has lost a lot of blood and when he was rushed to the hospital, they confirmed him dead.

“The uncle is 45 years while the boy is 23 years. The boy is known for hard work and doesn’t look for people’s trouble. But what happened between him and his uncle’s fiancé is what we can’t tell.

“We learnt that the case is being transferred from Osisioma Police Station to the State CID for further investigation.”

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Geoffrey Ogbonna said that he was yet to be briefed on the incident.

A source in Abia State Government House with whom the late Samuel markets Abia Rice (Osikapa Abia) confirmed his death, stating that they were shocked to learn of the development.

The State Coordinator Abia Good Governance Network, Comrade Johnson Otuonye condemned the killing of Samuel, charging the police to ensure that the killer of Samuel didn’t go unpunished.

    THAT UNCLE OF HIS IS a real stupid coward to have waited until the young man fell asleep. Brave enough? Then take your troubles head-on; don’t come from the back. That’s why I like cowboys: They are among the bravest lot of men.

    SO MANY DEATHS THIS CHRISTMAS TIME! A FRIEND JUST WHATSAPPED me that she’d lost her brother via road accident on the 24th. And just this morning, I learnt about the death of a lady whom I had promised to call, if only to ask after her deteriorating health—she had a heart disease. The last time we saw was about 3 days to Christmas. She was not so happy with me that I never did call her. She told me about her heart, and I was so moved I felt for her. When I dropped her off at Calabar, I promised I would call her. But sadly, by the time I wanted to fulfill my promise, I did not see her number in my contacts anymore. Today, I asked a lady who knew her to give me her number, and that’s when she informed me that she’s now late.

    I FEEL so bad I did not live up to my word, and I would never have another chance to remedy this. May her soul, together with this guy and the other one, all rest in perfect peace! And may God comfort the bereaved!

    His girlfriend must have manipulated this lily liver coward. He should have waited until his nephew wakes up to ask him what occurred between him and his girlfriend. Now either he is sentenced to death or spend life in prison, and the girlfriend……..will surely look for another man and forget about this idiot.

    Home distroyer! A girlfriend that hasn’t been married yet caused the murdering of brother-in-law to be. It’s such a shame for a man of 45years to act so stupidly to the extent of stabbing his nephew to death because of misunderstanding I believe he wasn’t present when it occurred.

    RIP
