A man and his girlfriend have been left in pains after being attacked with acid in Anambra state.
It was gathered that on Friday, 18/05/2018, at about 7pm, Mr. Chinedu Anagor from Amaezike village Agulu was carrying Miss Chinyere Okeke and her kid (out of wedlock ) who is from Odidama village Agulu, on his motorcycle as they were going to his house at Amaezike, Anambra state.
While in motion, one Mr. Samuel Onyekwelu (Analunwataku) from Odidama village Agulu – quickly poured corrosive acid on them which affected the three on the motorcycle.
Unfortunately for the supposed attacker Mr Samuel Onyekwelu, he left his motorcycle which he packed by the gutter and ran away after pouring the acid on the victims.
Few minutes after of the incident, the youths of Amaezike village stormed Odidama village while carrying the motorcycle of Mr Samuel. They met with the Chief Security of Agulu Mr. Jideofor Ifebueme who promptly mobilized his boys to ensure the arrest of Mr. Samuel for his evil act.
At the time of filing this report, Mr. Samuel is still in SARS custody at Neni while the victims of acid attack are at hospital receiving treatments.
During the investigation, it was gathered that the cause of the attack, was because Mr. Samuel (a married man with children of above 20yrs old) was in relationship with his niece, Miss Chinyere Okeke (Mr. Samuel is the brother to Chinyere’s father).
Along the line, Mr Chinedu Anagor fell in love with her and had planned to seek her hand in marriage by June 2018. Mr. Samuel objected simply because of the alleged abomination he often commits with Chinyere.
It was gathered that sometimes last year 2017, spiritual cleansing (Ikpu Alu)was performed as regard to the sexual relationship between Mr. Samuel and Miss Chinyere. The abomination was reported to have continued till when Chinedu Anagor ”snatched” her from Samuel which perpetrated the evil act.
