Twenty seven-year-old Chuka Okoli has sensationally revealed how he killed his mother, Chief (Mrs) Uzo Obi-Okoli, former Anambra State Commissioner for Woman Affairs and founder, Tender Love Orphanage.
Okoli, who was paraded alongside 39 other suspects for various crimes by the police at the command headquarters, Awka, on Tuesday, revealed that he executed the dastardly act with a gun he found in his fatherís room.
Chuka, who spotted tattoo on both arms, had some weeks ago killed his mother because he said she kept reminding him of his past. He, however, described the killing as "very unfortunate.".
Said he: "It is issues of problems in the family. It is very unfortunate."
Mrs Obi-Okoli, until her murder, was a director of the first indigenous refinery in Nigeria, Orient Petroleum Resources, which she midwifed when she was a special adviser to former Governor Chinwoke Mbadinuju on energy and petroleum. She was shot dead in her bedroom by Chuka, her second son, described as her favourite.
After murdering her, the young man fled Awka in her late motherís Mercedes Benz 500 SEL car. He abandoned the get-away car at a mechanic workshop in Auchi Street, Benin City, Edo State, before moving to Lagos. He was later arrested by the police in Lagos and taken to Awka.
