Tragedy struck in Igbo-Ukwu community in Agua­ta Local Government Area of Anambra State, recently when a boy, Ejike Nwank­wo allegedly attacked his mother, dragged her into a well and rained blocks on her. The woman died be­fore help could come.

The ugly incident has thrown the entire commu­nity into confusion as the suspect, the first child of the family had in Septem­ber last year killed his two siblings, set their family house ablaze and dumped  their corpses inside the same well.
In a telephone conversation a day before she was murdered, Mrs. Christiana Nwankwo had explained that her son Ejike had made life miserable for her:

“This boy killed two of  my children and set our family house ablaze with my children and disappeared  into thin air.

While we were trying to recover from that problem, he suddenly ap­peared again early this month and threatened to kill me and I ran to the palace of my tradition­al ruler for safety.

By the time I returned home, he had already dumped two bags of my palm nut into the well, and used palm frond to cordon off the entrance to my home. I am appealing to the law enforcement agents to come to my aid,” she lamented. ­

The paramount ruler of the community, Igwe Martin Eze, lamented that before the dement­ed boy could be arrested, he had already wreaked havoc, by kill­ing his mother.

It was gathered that Mrs Christiana who had been tak­ing refuge in neighbour’s home decided to go home around 8am in company with another of her son but unknown to her, Ejike had laid ambush for them and immediately she stepped into the compound, he pounced on them, overpowered and dragged her towards the well.

It was further gathered that the other son managed to escape by scaling the perimeter fence after which he raised the alarm. But before help could come, Ejike had already rained blocks on her mother in the well until she died.

Although, the matter had been reported to the police and the body of the deceased taken to the morgue, Igwe Eze blamed the sad incident on the absence of rehabilitation centres for mental­ly sick persons.

He said in devel­oped country, the likes of Ejike would have been taken out of the street and rehabilitated before he committed the dastardly act. He called on the Federal govern­ment to build more facilities for the mentally challenged so as to reduce the cases of murder, sui­cide and homicides which are prevalent.
