A Yahoo boy in Ebonyi state has reportedly hacked his aunt with hunchback to death for ritual purposes.
The man identified as Eric Ifeanyi Okoro, 28, was arrested for the crime which reportedly happened in Umuka, Okposi Community.
Popularly known as “yahoo boy” by residents, Eric hacked his aunt Benisa Okoro, a primary school teacher, while she was fast asleep. This was after he had eaten the meal she prepared for him.
Reacting to the incident, the President, Umuka Youth Association, Nwanneka Okorie, stated that the suspect has “been consumed by his inordinate ambition to always have things done in his own way irrespective of whosoever his actions might affect”.
“Ifeanyi is a ‘Yahoo boy’, his father would have been his first victim, when he wanted to kill him the previous year and that was why he was brought home in February, 2018, to live with his aunt. This is what you get with always wanting things come easy without working for it.”
