This report is coming after a middle aged man on Saturday last week, stabbed his four children and sister in-law to death in Awada Area of Onitsha, Anambra State.
The incident, which happened at No 18 Ntueke Street, Awada at about 8pm drew scores of sympathizers to the scene, as it was gathered that the man also committed suicide by drinking a poisonous substance.
Residents of the neighbourhood said, the man who returned recently from overseas has been having disagreement with his wife, a nurse at Chizoba Hospital in Awada, and who also operates a chemist shop few metres away from their residence.
His wife reportedly escaped death, because she was on night duty at the hospital when the incident happened.
“I think it was a planned deal, the man sent out their house help with N50 to buy satchet, and when she left, he shut the door and used what we think was a kitchen knife to stab his four children and the younger sister of his wife who were in the house to death,” a resident of the area who identified himself as Okwudili said.
Another resident, Miss Amaka said, “He had already killed the children and faced his sister in-law who had ran to the bathroom, when she started screaming, attracting our attention, but before people could force their way into the flat, he had completed his mission and also drank poison and died.”
