Horrendous! Man beheads father,eats his neck.



Ebonyi State Police Command,
yesterday, paraded a 30-year-old Nwode Chukwudi Awam, for
beheading his father, Michael Awam, 56, and eating the victim’s neck
at Egwudinagu Obegu village in Ebonyi Local Government Area of
the state.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, Assistant Superintendent
of Police Chris Anyanwu, said: “The Ebonyi State Command has
arrested Nwode Chukwudi, 30, who hails from Egwudinagu Obegu
village in Ebonyi Local Government Area for beheading his biological
“The remains of the victim were deposited at the Federal Teaching
Hospital, FETHA, mortuary for autopsy.
“When the police went for him, he was waving the machete which he
used to cut his father’s head and threatening to kill anybody that gets
close to him. He was overpowered all the same.
‘He ate the neck’
“He was seen eating the entire stub of the neck. So when you look at
the exhibit, the head doesn’t have the neck even though he did the
beheading from the base of the shoulder. You will not see the part of
the body that is supposed to be the neck; he ate it up.
“We can say that it is not unconnected with ritual because it does
appear that he may have been asked to do such a thing.
“But as I said, he is still undergoing investigation and if the suspect
yields, we will discover the real reason behind the dastardly act,”
Anyanwu added.
I heard a voice, says suspect
The suspect, who was seen intermittently smiling and looking
suspiciously calm, said he carried out the act after he heard a voice
which told him to go to his village and kill his father.
His uncle, Mr. Joseph Nwite, said that the suspect had been away
from home for over six years, adding “he just came back from Imo
State and killed his father.”
