Land Tussle: Man Taken To Shrine, Confesses Killing Brother With Rat Poison

Michael Chukwuebuka, Reporting

A middle-aged man, Mr. Kosara Ugwuka of Akala Village in Ezinifite, Nnewi South Local Government Area of Anambra State has confessed killing his elder brother, Mr. Chukwudi Ugwuka, with rat poison.

Stonix News reports that Mr. Ugwuka had earlier denied having a hand in the death of his brother.

He, however, eventually, confessed to the crime when he was taken to a shrine at Nando, in Anambra East Local Government Area, to swear before the deity.

He was dragged before the deity alongside another villager (his nephew), simply identified as Mr. Herbert, whom he (Kosara Uduka) was accusing of being responsible for his brother’s death.

Stonix News gathered that the incident happened during the Easter period, while the deceased was later confirmed dead on April 27, 2022, after battling series of mysterious sicknesses, and moving from one hospital to the other to seek medical attention.

Younger brother of the accused, Mr. Kosara Ugwuka, was alleged to be the mastermind of the death of Mr Ugwuka.

Kosara had earlier accused his nephew, Mr. Herbert, of being responsible for his brother’s death, because they all live in the same family house.

When both of them were repeatedly interrogated, Mr. Herbert maintained that he was innocent, while his accuser, Mr. Ugwuka, insisted he was innocent.

The claims and counter claims made the villagers to resort to using traditional means to unravel the truth, by taking the duo to a popular shrine at Nando last Sunday, to swear before the deity to prove their innocence.

Stonix News further gathered that after Mr. Herbert had sworn to the oath and was vindicated, Mr. Ugwuka was hooked and instantly blinded by the deity when he was in the process of swearing.

He then began to confess immediately during which he revealed that he killed his elder with a rat poison because of land dispute.

A video currently trending on the social media also shows Ugwuka kneeling and confessing at the shrine, while people watch and interrogate him.

He also confessed to have wrongly accused Mr. Hebert, even as he pleaded for forgiveness and help, as he could no longer see with his eyes.

Meanwhile, the police authorities in the state are yet to react to the development.
