The residents of a community in Ubiekpo Abor in Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State in Nigeria were taken aback to hear of the sad death of Mrs. Eunice Ugwuozor, who was hacked to death by her son, Uchechukwu.
The Police broke the news in a statement given by the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Ebere Amaraizu, noting that operatives of the state criminal investigation of the command had commenced a full scale investigation to unravel the mystery and circumstances surrounding the dastardly act.
He stated that the alleged murder took place around 5a.m. on October 2, when the suspect sneaked to the bed where the mother was lying down and stabbed her to death, adding that the command was yet to unearth the motive behind the attack.
The suspect, said to be in his late 20s or early 30s abandoned the lifeless body of his mother and escaped to an unknown destination after the murderous attack.
According to Amaraizu, sources close to the family hinted that the suspected murderer was linked to an unresolved psychological problem.
He said the body of the deceased had already been deposited at the hospital mortuary of Our Saviour located at Ninth Mile corner Ngwo Enugu just as the suspect had also been apprehended by the operatives.
