Man hacks mother to death, cuts body to pieces

One Sunday Agwim, 47, from Umuobom in Ideato South Local Government Area of Imo State
has reportedly hacked his own mother, Christiana Agwim,62, to death at the early hours of Saturday.

The police public relations officer in the state, Orlando Ikokwu, who disclosed this to newsmen in Owerri, said that operatives swooped on the suspect following the alarm raised by a security coordinator of the area, Jude Mbionwu.


According to the police spokesperson, after hitting his mother with a hammer, Sunday also dismembered and grounded her flesh with the object.

All efforts to deposit the remains of the woman in a morgue proved abortive as the body was rejected because of the gory state.

Meanwhile, the suspect confessed to the crime but insisted that he never knew what came over him to commit such atrocity.


Orlando said the state Commissioner of Police, Bolaji Fafowora, has ordered a fullscale investigation into the matter.
