A 47-year-old man, Emeka Ezimadu,  has reportedly killed his two children and his 85-year-old mother in Anambra State.

The incident happened in Nnewi, in the Nnewi Local Government Area of the state on Thursday night.

He also injured three of his children who were said to be in critical state in a hospital. The suspect reportedly attacked the victims in their sleep with a machete.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Haruna Mohammed, who confirmed the incident on Friday, said the suspect had been arrested.

The PPRO said, “On Thursday at 11.55pm, police operatives attached to Nnewi Division arrested one Emeka Ezimadu, 47, of Okpuneze Uruagu in Nnewi North Local Government Area of Anambra State.

“The suspect allegedly ran amok in a circumstance yet-to-be ascertained; attacked and killed two of his biological children namely Ifechukwu Ezimadu, 9, Mmeso Ezimadu, two years, and his own mother one Agnes Ezimadu, 85, of the same address allegedly with a cutlass while they were sleeping.

“The suspect equally used the same weapon and injured his three other children namely Nonso Ezimadu, 12, Chinaemerem Ezimadu, one, and Ngozi Ezimadu eight.”

Mohammed said detectives visited the scene and rushed the victims to the Akwudo hospital, where the two children and their aged grandmother were confirmed dead by a medical doctor.

Mohammed said the victims’ corpses had been deposited at the hospital’s morgue for autopsy, adding that the case had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Awka, for discreet investigation.
