Angry Son Machetes Father To Death In Enugu


Tragedy struck at Obodoukwu Imoha,
Nkerefi community in Nkanu East Local
Government Area of Enugu weekend, when
a young man allegedly went berserk and
inflicted several machete cuts on his father,
killing him instantly.

The suspect identified by the police as
Chinedu Umahi, was said to have killed his
father, Mr. Uwanuakwa Umahi while he was
resting in his house about 6 pm on
Saturday, September 1, with a sharp
machete with which he gave him deep cuts
in his body.

The police said in Enugu that the man
became unconscious following severe
bleeding and was rushed to a hospital at
Agbani in the neighbouring Nkanu West
Local Government Area where he died few
hours later. Chinedu is now said to be in
police custody where he had allegedly
admitted killing his father.

The State Police Public Relations Officer,
PPRO, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu, confirmed the
incident yesterday, saying that the
command has already commenced
investigations into the incident.

He said: “We are investigating an incident in
which a son gave his father several
machete cuts at Obodoukwu Imoha, Nkerefi
in Nkanu East local Government Area of the
state for a yet to be established reason. The
victim, one Uwanuakwa Umahi was alleged
to have been macheted by his own son
Chinedu.

“The victim was said to be resting in his
house that fateful day when his son
suddenly came in and started cutting him
with the machete. The man tried to escape
through the window but he could not
because of severe injuries he had already
sustained hence he became unconscious.

The man was later rushed to the General
Hospital Agbani for treatment but he was
confirmed dead.”
