A 28-year-old man, called Maduka Nworiegu, was killed by a gang of assailants in Akunakuna, Amagu, in the Ikwo Local Government Area of Ebonyi State Nigeria on Friday.
It was gathered that the late Maduka was beaten by his assailants with an iron, among other objects, till he gave up the ghost.
A source alleged that the attack on the victim was masterminded by a relative with whom he had political differences.
His younger brother, Donald Nworiegu, who confirmed the incident, said the assailants dropped his corpse at their father’s house in Amagu.
He denied reports that the killing was politically motivated.
“I was not at home when it happened, but my people told me that the assailants beat him with an iron and other objects and when they discovered that he has died, they took him to our father’s parlour and ran away,” he added.
