by Isi Esene The Obodoukwu Imoka community in Nkanu East Local Government Area of Enugu State was thrown into chaos over the weekend when a young man allegedly attacked his father with a machete inflicting severe injuries which the latter died from. Reports say the young man, Chinedu Umahi was said to have gone berserk and approached his father, Uwanuakwa Umahi, with a machete while he was resting last Saturday evening. The suspect who is now in police custody has admitted committing the crime but it is not clear what his motive was. The Enugu State Police public relations officer (PPRO), Mr. Ebele Amaraizu confirmed the incident saying investigations are on-going in the apparently bizarre case of unprovoked murder. He said: “We are investigating an incident in which a son gave his father several machete cuts at Obodoukwu Imoha, Nkerefi in Nkanu East local Government Area of the state for a yet to be established reason. The victim, one Uwanuakwa Umahi was alleged to have been macheted by his own son Chinedu. “The victim was said to be resting in his house that fateful day when his son suddenly came in and started cutting him with the machete. The man tried to escape through the window but he could not because of severe injuries he had already sustained hence he became unconscious. The man was later rushed to the General Hospital Agbani for treatment but he was confirmed dead." What an odd world we live in.
