Quarrel on modalities to share proceeds realised from the burial of their mum has led three brothers, Patrick Obieshieke, Chinonso Obieshieke and John Erieka to kill their blood brother, Remigius Obieshieke.
The deceased was brutally murdered after a disagreement erupted on how the money realised from the burial of their 75- year-old mother, Angelina Obieshieke would be shared.
This was disclosed by Imo State police spokesman, Orlando Ikeokwu, who said the incident happened last Friday at their father’s house in Umuolowoshe in Umuoshochie Autonomous Community in Obowo council area of Imo State.
Ikeokwu said: “On the 22/05/2020 at about 0600 hrs, upon credible information, operatives of the Divisional Police Headquarters, Obowo, moved to Umuolowoshe, Umuoshochie Autonomous community, Obowo and it was discovered that the above named persons killed one Remigius Obieshieke during a disagreement arising from money realised for the burial of their mother late Angelina Obieshieke, 75 years old.
“Meanwhile effort is ongoing to arrest the fleeing suspects, while investigation has commenced in earnest.”
