The Anambra police command has arrested a 28-year-old man identified as Chukwuemeka Obijofa, of Ofufe Nza village in Ekwusigo LGA of Anambra State, for killing his wife and their daughter on Tuesday, January 26 with a shovel.
The spokesperson of the state police command, Haruna Mohammed, made this known in a report where he states that the suspect ran amok and attacked his wife, 26-year-old Chisom Chukwuemeka, and their four-year-old daughter, Amanda Chukwuemeka, with a shovel on their heads.

According to the police spokesperson, “police detectives revisited the scene and rushed the victims to the joint hospital in Ozubulu for medical attention where the doctors confirmed both of them dead. He added that the wounded vigilante is responding to treatment while the bodies of the victims have been dropped at the hospital’s morgue for autopsy.
