There was unrest in Umuajani village, Umudioka in Dunukofia Local Government Area of Anambra State, when one of the sons of the community, 60-year old Charles Maduekwe, who was said to be missing for about three weeks, was found out to have been killed by his son and only child, Emeka Maduekwe, and buried in a shallow grave.
The Sun News reports that when caught by his kinsmen, Emeka, a self-made pastor who runs a chapel in his father’s house accepted responsibility for the abominable crime, saying he did it because his late father made it a habit to always curse him.
The atrocity was uncovered when for more than two weeks the kinsmen of the late Maduekwe could not see him at events in the village and inquired from his son, who told them that he traveled. One of the kinsmen said:
“When we asked him again, he said he traveled but when you looked at him ,you would know very well that he was lying. His mouth was shaking and he actually betrayed his innocence. We moved to his father’s house and there we saw some fresh sand covered with leaves and we asked him what he did there, he said he dug pit toilet there but his father said he should close it and he did so.
