A 27-year-old man has allegedly strangulated his father with the intention to use his eyes for money rituals.

Chinalu Ogbonna reportedly committed the dastardly act at Amuzukwu Community in Umuahia North Local Government Area of Abia State.

A community source said the suspect might have been under the influence of drugs, adding that his father loved him so much.

The source described the incident as bewildering and very strange to the community.

Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Abia State Command, Moureen Chinaka, gave the victim’s name as Mmaduka Ogbonna (57).

The PPRO said: “Yes, we received a report today at about 0800hrs at CPS Umuahia.

“It was a report of a murder case involving Mmaduka Ogbonna, a 57-year-old male, allegedly killed by his son, Chinalu Ogbonna, 27 years old at Amuzukwu in Umuahia North Local Government Area.

“Detectives from CPS Umuahia visited the crime scene and found the deceased’s lifeless body with his left eye gouged out.

“The suspect, Chinalu Ogbonna, a 27-year-old male residing with his father at Umu Eze Road opposite Junior Girls Secondary School Amuzukwu Ibeku, has been apprehended.

“Investigations revealed that he strangled his father to death and intended to use his left eye for money rituals.

“The corpse has been deposited at the morgue for autopsy, and exhibits have been recovered.

“The case is currently under investigation and will be charged to court.”

It will be recalled that a few days ago, a man also in the Umunneochi area of Abia State, killed his biological son for allegedly eating the remaining cooked food in the house.

Police also said that the suspect had been taken into custody, while investigation is ongoing.
