Family of Slain Pregnant Woman, Seek Justice

Few weeks after Mrs Chinecherem Nwagboso was allegedly murdered by the husband in Amorka in Ihiala Local Government Area, Anambra State, the family of the diseased has demanded justice for their 19-year-old pregnant daughter.

It was alleged that the husband by name Prince Nnanna Emeka from Omuodimma Ugbele Mgbidi in Oru West LGA of Imo State killed his four months pregnant wife for ritual purpose.

It was also gathered that Chinenecherem had told her friends earlier that her husband was acting strange. In different occasions, he had approached her to accompany him to an unknown friend’s place a request she vehemently refused. After trying fruitlessly to convince her on the unknown visit, he was able to convince her to follow him to his maternal home in Umunakwa Village in Amorka which is also the town the diseased hailed from. He allegedly decided to execute the act there.

He was said to have used an iron rod to hit her on her forehead, But while trying to transport the body, it became suspicious, he was smuggled out by his maternal relation and he asked another of his friend to help him clean up the blood on the crime scene.

Barr Chinwuba Ndukaihe who is the legal adviser to the traditional council and town Union, also urged the beareved immediate family and the good people of Amorka to continue being good and law abiding citizen, and have faith in the good effort of our security agencies to enmask the perpetrators.

Also, the member representing Ihiala Constituency I at Anambra State House of Assembly, Hon Chidi Udemadu condemned the murder of the young lady and called on the police to thoroughly investigate the murder so as to bring the perpetrator to book.


Udemadu also urged the family of the deceased to be strong in this difficult time, adding that his thoughts and prayers are with them.

A human Right Lawyer, Barr Lawrence Nwaketi said the action is highly condemnable. It is a reflection of the rot in the system where the craze to get rich by all means has become the order of the day.
