It is certainly not normal for Agaezichi Ogbonna, 22, to be having a love affair with his mother’s younger sister who is 32 years old.

It is also not normal for the 32-year-old woman, whose marriage had failed, to be getting down with her sister’s son who is ten years younger than her.

The saddest part is, their romance has caused the death of the boy’s mother, who was the elder sister of the 32-year-old.

Abia state Police command has arrested Agaezichi Ogbonna, who allegedly killed his mother over a love affair with a blood relative at Akpaa Mbato community, Obingwa council area of Abia State.

Bounce News gathered that the 22-year-old suspect was said to have been having a love affair with his mother’s sister, but his mother, Blessing, warned against the relationship, describing it as a taboo in Igbo land.

On the fateful day, Agaezichi had allegedly spent the night with his lover. On sighting the lover while she was leaving on Saturday morning, the late Mrs. Chinyere Ogbonna raised alarm calling the attention of the community to the sacrilegious relationship her son had been keeping with a blood relative, being a native of his maternal home.

This however did not go down well with Agaezichi as he was said to have jumped out of the room, landed his mother several punches on the face and all over her body which threw her into coma. She gave up the ghost on arrival at a nearby medical facility.

When they realised that the woman had died, the lovers fled, but Agaezichi was arrested by youths, who handed him over to the soldiers stationed at the community.

A family source said: “The boy was having a love affair with his mother’s sister. The love affair has been going on for a long time. But his mother kept warning him against it.

“Everybody in this village had been warning the boy against the love affair, because it is a taboo in Igboland. Any time his mother warns him to stop the love affair with her sister, Agaezichi will beat the woman.

“Yesterday, his mother saw him with the girl and warned about the consequences of their love affair and Agaezichi rained blows on the woman. She fell and died.”

A soldier, who asked not to be mentioned, said the suspect has been handed over to the Police.

When contacted, Police Area Commander, Aba, ACP Peter Opara, confirmed that the suspect is being detained.
