JUNGLETALKER Reports that the Enugu State Police Command has confirmed the arrest of a young man who allegedly killed his mother, Mrs Charity Orji, and his sister, Miss Ukamaka Orji, and buried them in a shallow grave in their backyard in the state.
The suspect, identified as Somadina Orji from Igboariam in Anambra State, was said to have committed the offence on Monday, December 4, 2023, at Umuagu Inyi, in the Oji River Local Government Area of Enugu State.
According to various reports and videos of the incident, the late Charity, a native of Inyi but married in Igboariam, Anambra State, had been living in her family house with her children for some years.
Unfortunately, her son, who allegedly deals in hard drugs and has been having issues with her for some time killed her.
A community leader in Inyi, Mr Ben Obi, who spoke to some journalists, stated that the problems started weeks ago when the suspect had an issue with the younger brother.
He added that the suspect had wanted to hit him (the younger brother) before the mother stopped him and reported the incident to the kingsmen asking them to come and chase him away from the house because he wanted to kill the younger brother.
Meanwhile, the younger sister had been missing for two weeks before he had the problem with the mother.
