An Imo state husband and wife together with their children are currently facing the dance tunes of the law for allegedly murdering the youngest member of their family in cold blood in a quest to get rid him.
In a confessing made by the perpetrators, they confessed that they hit with a plank while he was asleep and left him to die. They said they did this because the boy is the most stubborn child of the family and is always giving them sleepless nights.
28-year-old Chukwuebuka was murdered by his father Mr Lambert Ukachukwu, his wife, their daughter, and their son, Philip, at their home in Duruegwele village, Umueze II, in Ehime Mbano Local Government of the State.
The father, mother and the daughter of their daughter are currently on police custody while one of their sons who is at large has being declared wanted by the police.
Few days after the gruesome murder of the boy which happened on the 17 September, the neighbiours and villagers noticed the absence of Chukwuebuka, they confronted his parents and siblings about his whereabouts, but they all replied that Chukwuebuka has travelled to Ghana in search of greener pastures.
Chukwuebuka sister who is also the daughter Mr Lambert Ukachukwu, eventually confessed to the whole family having made a unanimous vote to get rid of their youngest brother because he’s stubborn after the youths threatened to burn down the family’s house.
Following the daughter’s confession, the father was forced to exhume his son’s corpse from the shallow grave.
