Two corpses alleged to be those of two brothers identified as Onyema and Nonso have been found tucked in their car boot along the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway, close to Tempo Mills, Umunya, Anambra State.
The brothers were allegedly murdered and their bodies dumped inside the boot of their Toyota Corolla on their way home after attending a Church programme along Oguta Road, near Upper Iweka, Onitsha the previous night.
A few days ago, The Anambra Police Command confirmed the incident of two bodies, said to be those of a yet-to-be-identified couple, which were found along the same Enugu-Onitsha Expressway, Umunya
Confirming the previous incident, the Anambra State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, said that “Police personnel attached to the Oyi Division led by the DPO at about 7:30am on 24/1/2024, recovered two lifeless bodies, abandoned in a car boot along the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway.
“The operatives also recovered the abandoned vehicle and some expanded cartridges at the scene. Meanwhile, the bodies have been deposited in the morgue and investigations have commenced.”
A Facebook user, Onovo, who is based in Aguleri, stated this in a post he made on his page.
He wrote, “They are my two sons in the Anglican Children’s Ministry, Omogba, Onitsha years back. I called their parents yesterday to offer them prayers.”
Another Facebook user wrote, “Two blood brothers kidnapped and killed in Anambra State yesterday…Ala Igbo has eaten their own flesh and drank lots of their own bloods. They attended a church programme at Oguta Road, Onitsha as I was told yesterday only for them to be found at Umunya junction in the trunk of their car!!! Negodu men. This is really really heartbreaking.”
The reason for the killing of the brothers were sketchy as at the time of this report. However, residents hang their suspicions on kidnappers who may have been recognized by the brothers.
