“At about 1 am on June 21, 2020, police operatives attached to Ogbunike Police Station arrested one Ifeanyi Apusiobi aged 34years of Azu Ogbunike in Oyi LGA of Anambra State.

“The suspect allegedly ran amok in a circumstance yet to be ascertained and attacked two of his biological children namely, Chinecherem Apusiobi aged seven years and Obinna Apusiobi aged five years, with a wooden pestle on their heads while they were sleeping.

“He equally used the same object and injured his father, Dominic Apusiobi, aged 72years on the head.
