28-Year-Old Man Commits Suicide After Beating His Mother To Death

A 28-year-old man, Ekene Ezeogo, has committed suicide in Ebonyi after he allegedly beat his mother, Mary, to death. Eye witnesses told the News Agency of Nigeria that Ekene killed his mother in cold blood at the family house at Agbaja Road, Abakaliki. Ekene’s elder brother, Chidi, who confirmed the incident, said Ekene killed their mother when she was trying to settle a fight between Ekene and his younger sister.

“Ekene drank three bottles of rat poison in an uncompleted building at Onuebo area of Abakaliki after the dastardly act.

“After killing our mother, he drove his motorcycle to the central police station, Abakaliki and reported the matter.

“He, however, fled the station when the police wanted to arrest him and ran to an uncompleted building where he drank the poison,” he said.

Chidi said that Ekene was rushed to the emergency unit of the Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, where he eventually died.

Mr Sunday Chinedu, a tenant in the Ezeogo’s family house, collaborated the story, saying that occupants in the house helped rush Ekene to the hospital.

Contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in Ebonyi, DSP Jude Madu,s aid:“I have not been in the state for sometime and I did not receive such report before I traveled.”

But Chief Silas Aliede, a community leader in the area, said, “ the whole community is still in shock over the incident.

“I will not say much for now except that the elders and community leaders would meet to review the situation and know the next step to take.”
