The Abia State Police Command for allegedly killing his 87-year-old father, Dr. Emmanuel Ezebuiro, paraded a 27-year-old undergraduate of Madonna University, Okija, Anambra State, Chijioke Ezebuiro, yesterday July 22nd.

While parading Chijioke before newsmen, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Geoffrey Ogbonna said Chijioke is the chief suspect in his father’s death because he was the only one around when the deceased was brutally murdered on June 30th at his home in Umuoriehi, Isingwu in Umuahia North LGA of Abia state.

According to his elder brother’s statement to the police, Chijioke had often threatened to kill their father. The elder brother said he left their father and Chijioke at home to drop off his children at school only to return to find their father in the pool of his own blood. He immediately called the police after Chijioke could not explain what happened to their father. Police preliminary reports shows that there was no evidence of someone else gaining access into the home when the octogenarian was murdered.

During his interrogation, Chijioke claimed he was having his bath when his father was murdered. “After taking my bath, as I was going towards my room I saw people screaming in my father’s room, so I decided to go inside to know what was happening there. When I went there I saw my brother and my cousin in my father’s room and I saw my dad on top of his bed. I was shocked to see blood on his head. I was so scared I had to go down stairs to call one of my cousins. When I came back with him we were asking them what happened, none of them told us anything. He told us to go down stairs the next thing was for me to see police coming to arrest me, took me to the police station, saying I am a murderer, that’s all.” he said.

The suspect denied ever threatening his father’s life, maintaining they had a good relationship.
