August 2nd, 2017 – Man Beats Younger Brother Who Disobeyed Their Mother To Death In Afikpo Ebonyi State

A man identified as David Orji, has allegedly beaten his younger brother, Onu, to death for being disobedient to their mother.

The incident, it was learnt, took place at Ubia Amaetiti in Amoso Edda, Afikpo South Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.

According to a source who is a relative of the family, their mother, Mary, had sent the deceased on errand but he refused.

The source who pleaded anonymity, said the mother reported Onu to his 23-year-old elder brother David who then beat him up and inflicted him with bodily harm in the process which led to his untimely death.

“Last Friday being 28th July, a boy called Onu was sent on an errand by his mother but he refused to go. Eventually his elder brother, David, returned from a travel on that day. So his mother reported him to his elder brother”, the source narrated.

“His brother now started beating Onu and kicked him to the ground. Eventually, the boy remained on the ground. He was rushed to the hospital. The first hospital declined to handle him. They then rushed to another hospital in where he was admitted.

“The following day being Saturday, the boy died. The family reported the matter to the police station but the police directed them to deposit him in the morgue.

“Strangely again, the mortuary department of the General Hospital in Owutu Edda rejected the corpse, saying that they don’t have chemicals for preserving corpse. They then took him home for burial but the police refused. They later took the body to another mortuary,” added the source.

  1. THE VIOLENT BROTHER SHOULD BE CHARGED FOR MURDER,THE FIRST HOSPITAL SHOULD BE SUED BECAUSE FIRST ATTEMPT WOULD HAVE SAVED THE SITUATION,INTERNAL BLEEDING DUE TO LOSS OF BLOOD MAY HAVE HASTEN THE DEATH. AND POLICE INABILITY TO HANDLE THE SITUATION SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED.THIS CAN ONLY HAPPEN IN BANANA REPUB

  2. No wonder people frown at corporal punishment as a way of correcting an erring child. But discipline when given in a mild and loving way always help in readjusting a child that has done wrong. Such discipline could be mere spanking. Our objective is to lovingly help that child to know that he or she has done wrong and need to change his course. But when you become a child beater,you may well be sending a wrong message to that child that you a cruel person whose discipline on him or her actually revealed the depth of your wickedness. That guy who beat his younger brother to death obviously lost his temper because his manner of discipline was not meant to correct that child but to exhibit his extreme anger over the wrong that, that child has committed. It wasn’t a loving discipline but a vengeful one. The bereaved parent should take heart and try to learn a vital lesson from this regrettable tragedy. Do not allow someone to kill your child for you through heavy beating.

  3. hmm,this is just so unfortunate,how can the elder brother be this cruel,can’t he just spank him a little,must he go the extent of kicking him..

  4. I hope he has satisfied his ego and at least feel like a boss now that he has killed his own brother. It is unfortunate that some people think that being some body’s elder means bullying and maltreating that person, and being entitled to that person’s infite obedience and even worship.
