By Joyce Aroh
A man named  Chibuike Ochie, from Uburu in Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, has killed his sister, a sister-in-law and a labourer in their farmland in Ebonyi State.
Information has it that those he killed are , Ogechi Ochie 32 years old who was said to be the wife of the elder brother, his younger sister Margaret Ochie, 35years old and the labourer. The three were macheted to death on the farm
The police spokesperson in the state, DSP Loveth Odah, confirmed the incident to newsmen in Abakaliki on Monday.
According to Odah, who said that investigations are still on to know exactly what caused the attack and killing of the three persons.
‌She, also charged youths not to  take the laws into their hands.
She said: “It was reported that on 23rd October 2021, when the family of Ochie were in the farm including a hired labourer, one of their brothers, Chibuike Ochie, went into the farm and suddenly started macheting them.
“He succeeded in macheting Ogechi Ochie 32 years old who was said to be the wife of the elder brother and the younger sister Margaret Ochie, 35years old and the said labourer. The three of them were macheted to death on that farm and he escaped.
“In the process of fleeing the scene, irate youths of that area caught and mobbed him. As I’m talking to you now he is still critically sick to the extent that he is living on a life support machine.
“The investigation is still ongoing but that could be done when this man survives.
“That is why we keep discouraging the youth from taking laws into their hands especially when a person committed offence like this. If they brought the person to us, he would have told us the reasons he had to do this to his family members and he would have faced the law. But in this case, a lot of money is being spent to revive this person.
“The incident took place at Obegu farm in Uburu.
 According to the DPO who visited the place, he said the farmland is about 25km away from Uburu town.”
