A man identified as Mr Chinedu Omeonu has been dragged to the police for killing his cousin, Solomon Orji, at Mgboko Umuoria community in Obingwa council area of Abia State.
An eyewitness said that Orji’s son had gone to Omeonu’s residence to pluck some mango fruits, but the latter flogged and assaulted the little boy mercilessly.
When the boy’s father was informed about what happened to his son, he went to Omeonu’s residence to inquire about the incident.
Omeonu who got infuriated after being confronted by Orji, attacked his cousin with a cultlass as he was about leaving.
“Solomon’s son went to his father’s cousin residence to pluck some mangoes, but the owner, Omeonu beat up him up. I think there were some problems between both families.
“When Solomon got information about the beating of his son, he went to Mr Chinedu Omeonu’s house to inquire. After the exchange of words, Solomon took his son home. On his way home, Omeonu went after him with a cutlass and inflicted several cuts on his neck,” the eyewitness said.
The victim was said to have slumped and died before he could get medical attention.
Angered by the incident, youths of the community arrested Omeonu, beat him to pulp before handing him over to the Police.
When contacted about the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, Abia State Command, SP Geoffrey Ogbonna, said he was not aware of the incident.
