Sept 22, 2014 – Tragedy In Benin Edo State As Angry Farmer Beheaded Co-Tenant’s Children, Killed Baby Boy

A farmer is currently on the run after a gruesome attack on his co-tenant’s children.

The 50-year-old man identified as Mike Okeze who hailed from Abia State reportedly hacked his co-tenant’s children to death before escaping through the window.

The tragedy happened at Oliver Udeh’s family house on Wednesday the 17th of September 2014.

Read what Mr Udeh’s wife, Chinyere told Daily Sun:

“Three days ago, my children were playing within the compound when our neigbour arrived and began to question why they ran past the front of his room. He then used a wheelbarrow to block the way.”

“I went to beg him to forgive the children but he said my husband and I were sending them to insult him. In a short while, he pounced on me and held me by the neck. Next, he seized a cutlass and pursued me, but I ran for my life.

“When he could not keep pace with me, he returned to a spot in the compound and sat down. Thinking that his anger had simmered down, I went to the kitchen to take care of my cooking but I didn’t know he had locked the doors, with my children inside. A little while later, I heard the children, screaming for help and there was no way I could get in. All my six children were inside at that time. While I was outside, he was busy dealing the children machete blows.

“While that encounter lasted, he killed two while the two grownups escaped though the window. He succeeded in killing my baby of nine months and the other, who was three years old. The dead were both boys,”.

“I want government to find the man and kill him just as he killed my children; we are a poor family.”

“He had a quarrel with my husband three years ago. What caused the quarrel was that he brought a chameleon from the farm and smoked it in my kitchen. My husband warned him about it, saying a chameleon was dangerous. So, my husband had to throw it away. Three days later, my children fell sick. Since then, he has been chasing my children around but we didn’t know he haboured such evil intention.

“When I realised that he was killing the children, I struggled to break into the room. But by the time I succeeded, part of the horror I saw was that he had sliced my baby’s throat; he had also cut my other son’s head. He cut off my girl’s wrist and sliced the girl’s nose. Thereafter, he escaped through the window and fled into the bush.

“We need help now. We don’t even have any money to pay for the x-ray or operation on the rest of the children, who are alive,” .

Doctors at UNIBEN Teaching Hospital said the two children on admission are stable but critical.

Edo State Police Officials have launched a manhunt for the runaway suspect.

    It is really very sad story, Madam. May God heal the other children. But the neighbors around you should have come to your aid when the wicked man was busy killing the children. Very sorry for the pains you are into.
