A man has been beaten to coma for killing his lover’s child over N20 theft in Aba.
The man identified as Amandianaeze, was beaten to coma for killing the last born of his lover for allegedly stealing his mom’s N20 and using it to buy biscuit in Agbaravo by Omuma Rd, Aba, Abia State.
It was gathered that the money was stolen yesterday and the boy was reprimanded, but Eze resumed beating him today and hit his head against a wall, leading to his instant death.
Upon confirming his death, neighbours descended on Eze and beat him till he lost consciousness. They also tried setting him ablaze but they only got kerosene.
However, before they could get petrol, police had arrived the scene to take the deceased and Eze away. The suspect is said to have been staying with the mom of the deceased for over 2 years, but they are not married.
A source in the area who spoke anonymously told The Nation that Amadi who got to know the family through the husband moved in with the widow few years ago after the demise of her husband and has since been having sexual affairs with her. The source said;
“The matter is too flimsy to result to the killing of that boy. Amandi has been sleeping with the woman since the demise of her husband.
“When he was beating the boy, people asked him to stop, but he refused. It was when the boy died that he wanted to run away and we learnt the boy’s offense was just that he eat his own mother’s twenty Naira biscuit. And the mother’s lover didn’t like it.”
