“I was in front of my shop playing ludo game with one nurse Rebecca when Ifeanyi, who hap­pens to be my husband’s brother, joined us. He requested to be allowed to participate in the game but I declined on the ground that he often caused trouble each time he participated and lost out in the game. Sometimes, it would lead to wanton destruction of some items in my shop and the compound.

“It was on that note that he took offence and this led to ex­change of words. He abused me and called me all sorts of unprint­able names.

“My husband was not around then but when he came back, somebody else told him how Ifeanyi abused me right in my shop. This made my husband to confront Ifeanyi.

“It was that confrontation that led to a fight on that Tuesday morning between the two and my husband, out of anger, confiscated his motorcycle ignition key, insisting that he must pay for all the damages he caused in my shop.

“This incident happened in the morning but, around 6:30 pm, my husband rushed off to the neighboring village to watch the Nigeria/Argentina match.

“In no time, someone rushed to our house to announce that my husband and Ifeanyi were fighting again; that Ifeanyi waylaid him and attacked him with a heavy weapon from behind.

“He was still struggling for survival when he grabbed his genitals and cut it off with a knife. He was already lifeless at the point I got to the place and this happened right in the presence of his (Ifeanyi’s) mother and wife, an indication that it was a calculated plan to kill my husband,” she narrated.

The mother of the deceased, Mrs. Louisa Ikwunyelu, also called for justice to prevail on the matter.

“I am calling on the Nigerian police to fish out the whereabout of Ifeanyi that killed my son. My son cannot be buried until Ifeanyi’s whereabout is known.

“They must be buried together. Ifeanyi’s mother vowed to eliminate my family and she said it to the hearing of many,” she said.

The alleged murderer is still at large but his mother, Mrs. Maureen Eziechina and his wife, Ada Eziechina have been arrested by men of the Achalla police division.

But information has it that they have been granted bail and that they had gone into hiding at the neighboring village, called Enugu-Eketeke, Ugbenu at the house of one Mrs. Ekedimma Nweke.

Orient Daily traced the duo to the area but was told that the assailant’s mother critically ill as a result of her detention in the police cell, while the wife, Ada went to see her relations.
