A 20-year old nanny, Chioma Onyegili, was hacked to death by her madam’s 31-year old son identified only as Okechukwu because she refused to have sex with him in the commercial city of Onitsha, Anambra state.
The unfortunate incident occurred around 9:30pm on Wednesday, August 5, 2015 at 56 Ziks Avenue Fegge, Onitsha, where the suspect, who had been arrested by the Anambra State Police Command, killed the victim with a machete.
Until her death, Onyegili lived with the suspect’s 70-year-old mother but faced usual sexual harassment from Okechukwu.
The Divisional Police Officer in charge of Fegge Police Station, Superintendent Rabui Garba who confirmed the incident, said that when the information reached his office he dispatched a team of detectives who swung into action and arrested the culprit.
Garba revealed further that the suspect who confessed to the crime said that he had previously killed an unspecified number of persons in like manner.
The matter would be transferred to State Criminal Investigation Department (CID) for further investigation on the matter, according to the police boss.
The corpse of the victim has been deposited at an undisclosed hospital mortuary in the commercial city.
Okechukwu said he might have been killed the victim out of sheet hardness of heart following his past murder offences.
