Deputy-Director with the Anambra–Imo River Basin Development Authority, Owerri, Mr. Basil Ejezie, has been allegedly killed by his brothers in-law at his Umunze country home in Anambra State.
 
It was learnt that the deceased was at a service at the Holy Rosary Catholic Parish, when he received information that his attention was needed at home.
 
Sources said barely 20 minutes after he left the church, the parishioners learnt that Ejezie had a confrontation with his brothers in–law and was in a critical condition.
 
When they got to Ekezie’s house, sources said four big sticks were found around his unconscious body.
 
It was learnt that Ejezie was taken to the Immaculate Heart Hospital, Umunze, but no doctor was on duty.
 
They said he was later taken to Ekwulobia General Hospital, where the doctors pronounced him dead.
 
The deceased’s wife of 20 years, Dr. Virgini, is a lecturer at the Federal Technical College of Education, Umunze.
 
It was learnt that the matter has been reported to the police.
 
The deceased’s younger brother, Mr. Sunday Ejezie, said: “I want justice. I want my brother’s killers punished. We do not want the police to cover up anything because some interested parties are already trying to influence the police.
 
“It is public knowledge that he was killed by his wife’s brothers and the four heavy sticks used are now with the police. One of them has been arrested.
 
“My late brother was the light of our family and we were all looking up to him. We knew he had an unpleasant marriage, but we never knew it would lead to his death.
 
“Shortly after my brother was pronounced dead, his wife and her brothers locked up his house and even the police could not go in.”
 
Police spokesman Emeka Chukwuemeka could not confirm the incident. He said he had not been briefed.
 
Efforts to speak with the Divisional Police Officer failed, as his phones were switched off.
 
Virginia refused to comment on the incident.
