Operatives of the Imo State Police Command are on the trail of three brothers, Patrick Obieshieke, Chinonso Obieshieke and John Erieka for allegedly killing their blood brother, Remigius Obieshieke, over money realised from the burial of their late mother.

Remigius 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.

According to the state police spokesman, Orlando Ikeokwu, 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”. (The Nation)
