It was reported last week that a young man identified as Ekene Ezeogo, allegedly beat his mother to death following a squabble that erupted in their residence located at No 24 Agbaja Road in Abakaliki Ebonyi State capital.
The incident occurred last week Wednesday when the woman identified as Prophetess Mary intervened in a fight that ensued between Ekene and his younger sister.
She was rushed to hospital when she started complaining of pains after her son reportedly pushed her to the ground in error while she was trying to separate a fight between him and a younger sister.
A new report has now revealed that the 28-year-old man has reportedly committed suicide after he was accused of killing his mother who had died a few days earlier.
It was gathered that after the death of his mother, Ekene drove to the Central Police Station Abakaliki where he reported the matter. However, he fled the station when police wanted to detain him.
Sources say he later ended his life in an uncompleted house at Onuebo residential area of Abakaliki after he drank three bottles of rat poison.
His elder brother, Chidi Ezeogoo, explained that Ekene was rushed to the emergency unit of the Federal Teaching Hospital Abakaliki where he was later pronounced dead.
Corroborating his account, a tenant in the area, Chinedu Sunday, explained that immediately they were informed about Ekene’s health condition, they contacted the police who came and assisted the family in rushing him to the hospital.
One of the late Ekene’s step-brothers, Onyema lamented that the incident had dragged the name of the family to the mud.
He said at the time he was apparently trying to kill himself, efforts were being made by the family to resolve the matter at the police station.
The police spokesperson in the state, Jude Madu, said he was yet to get exact facts of the matter. PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> How I TOTALLY Got Rid Of my POT BELLY,excess Fat and Overweight In just 2weeks.. Click HERE for Details.
