A man, identified as Abuchi Onuorah, has allegedly killed his 65-year-old father, Onyiauke Onuorah, in Nando, in the Anambra East Local Government Area of Anambra State.
The 24-year-old was also said to have burnt the corpse of the deceased.
A family member, who spoke to Southern City News on condition of anonymity, said Onyiauke was trailed to his room, where he was allegedly murdered by his son.
“The deceased was killed by his son. He claimed that his father was responsible for the death of his 51-year-old mother, Okwundu Onuorah.
“The deceased was alleged to have used diabolical powers to inflict disease on his wife for flouting his order not to attend the Omugwo (maternity treat) of their daughter, who was recently delivered of a baby.
“Onyiauke threatened his wife that if she went for their daughter’s Omugwo at Nteje, she would not come back alive. But the wife went against his order. During the visit, she was struck by a strange ailment and she died two days later.
“Before her death, the woman revealed to her children how their father threatened to kill her through diabolical means if she dared to visit their sister that put to bed.
“So, when she eventually died and the message got to her children, one of her sons, Abuchi, dashed to their father’s room, dismembered him with a cutlass and poured petrol on his remains and set them on fire,” the source stated. Abuchi fled the community after killing the father.
The chairman of the community, Uja Egwu, confirmed the development, adding that the matter had been reported to the police in the area.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Haruna Mohammed, said he was not aware of the matter.
