One Ugorji Aguwa is currently on the run after allegedly killing his nephew’s in-law in Mbaise LGA area of Imo state.
The deceased, Ubanna Henry Iroegbu, had gone to confront the suspect for allegedly maltreating his sister, who is married to the suspect’s nephew, who lives abroad when he allegedly shot and killed him.
It was gathered that the unfortunate incident occurred on Tuesday, December 28, 2021.
According to the deceased’s sister, “My elder sister whose husband is out of the country, travelled home from Port Harcourt to visit her mother-in-law in Umueleagwa. Yesterday, her husband’s uncle, Mr Ugorji Aguwa told her not to cook in her mother-in-law’s kitchen because the land belongs to him.
“When my sister disobeyed him, he angrily threw away the food. After which, he and his family harassed her until she called my brother, Iroegbu who has been our father and mother since we lost both parents to come to her aide.
“My sweet brother left all he was doing and took some youth from our village to Umueleagwa. My brother got there, as they were looking for this man, he turned back maybe to return home since this man and his family refused to come out and the next thing Mr Ugorji sh#t my brother from behind and killed him.
“He is currently on the run with his family. I need justice for the death of my brother whose only crime was protecting his siblings who are orphans.”
