These days, one wonders how people subject themselves to avoidable dangers that sometimes cause their death.

Mr Ebenyi married two wives, they were three step brothers, two (Vincent and Jeremiah) born by one mother, and one, (Friday) born by the other.

Friday’s mother died few years back and Ebenyi refused to bury his own late wife in his compound but asked Friday to take his mother’s corpse and bury her himself.

Friday took his mother’s corpse and buried her in his own compound.

Then Vincent and Jeremiah’s mother died in mid April, 2018, but Mr Ebenyi wanted to bury his second wife in his compound.

This is what caused the disagreement between the children, as Friday insisted that his late step-mother must not be buried inside the father’s compound, but can be buried in the compound of her children (Vincent and Jeremiah).

A fight ensued, Vincent and Jeremiah allegedly beat Friday to death during an argument, while their father watched.

The incident happened at Okereigwe village in Agbaja community, Izzi local government area of Ebonyi state.

The Ebonyi State Police Command confirmed the unfortunate incident after arresting Vincent and Jeremiah over the death of the 47-year-old.

Police spokesperson, Loveth Odah said their father, Mr Ebenyio, alongside the two suspects are in custody.

"Friday was killed on Tuesday April 17, 2018 when he refused to accept his father's decision that his step mother should be buried in his father's compound because of what the man did to him when his own mother died.

"It was even learnt that after the deceased corpse was rejected, her husband handed over her house to the second wife who was occupying the place till her death.

"On this refusal, fight ensued between him and his step brothers, Vincent and Jeremiah and they used different types of weapons to hit him until he died while his father watched.

"Seeing that he had died, Jeremiah fled the compound, while Vincent and his father were arrested. Few days later, Jeremiah was also arrested in Anambra State", she stated.

The man and his two sons are still in detention at the time of filing this report, while the corpse of the second wif‎e is lying in their compound and Friday's body also left behind in their compound.
