Man killed his mother and sister in Enugu after taking hard drugs

Abuse of hard drugs is too much in Enugu. It is leading to so many sordid stories daily.

Police has confirmed the arrest of one Somadina Orji for killing his own mother and younger sister and burying them in a shallow grave.

The incident happened at Umuagu Inyi, in the Oji River Local Government Area of Enugu State.

According to various account as reported by Punch, Somadina killed his mother on December 4 following a quarrel between him and the rest of the family.

The problem started some weeks ago after Somadina had issues with his brother and wanted to kill him. The mother, Mrs Charity Orji, intervened which led to Somadina declaring war on the entire family.

Then, the younger sister, Miss Ukamaka Orji, suddenly disappeared. Many days later, on December 4, the mother also disappeared.

The brother raised alarm. A search was conducted and Somadina caught by the villagers. He confessed to killing his sister weeks ago before killing the mother. He led them to where he buried them in shallow graves at their backyard.

“The suspect has been arrested, and the case is under investigation. The suspect would be prosecuted once investigations are concluded,” DSP Daniel Ndukwe, the spokesperson of Enugu State Police Command, said.
