A 47-year-old man has allegedly smashed his mum’s head with a hammer in Imo State.
The 47-year-old man’s name was given as Christian Agwim by the state police in Imo state.
According to Southern City News, the sad occurrence happened in Umuobom, Ideato South Local Government Area of Imo State.
Orlando Ikeokwu, the state’s police spokesperson said Christian, who is now a suspect, was arrested for killing his mum.
Ikeokwu said, “We received intelligence from one Jude Mbionwu, a security coordinator at Umuobom, who revealed that one Sunday Agwim, 47, killed his mother, one Christiana Agwim, 62, hitting a hammer and a machete on her head and completely grounded the head into powder beyond recognition with the hammer.
“The scene was immediately visited and the suspect was arrested and exhibits recovered. The corpse was not taken to the mortuary because of the damage to the head; rather, coroners’ forms were completed and a doctor from the UTH Nnewi, Anambra State, conducted an autopsy on the corpse to enable the burial to take place.
“In his confessional statement, the suspect stated that he never knew what came upon him.”
Ikeogwu also noted that Christian would be charged at the end of the investigation.
