THE mysterious death of a youth leader, Ugwuaka Chukwudi in Akala Village in Ezinifite, Nnewi South Local Government Area was last weekend unraveled as the younger brother to the deceased confessed of using rat poison ‘otapiapia’ to terminate his life.
The incident, which took place during the Easter period attracted some members of the community who immediately tried to save his life by rushing him to the hospital.
Kosara was reportedly denying of his complicity to the crime when he was initially confronted. He said he knew nothing about it or having anything to do with his brother’s death. It was alleged that Kosara was the one who served him the meal that got him immediate upset.
“He eventually confessed to the crime when he was taken to a shrine in Nando in Anambra East Local Government Area to swear before the deity in company of one of his nephews, one Herbert, whom Kosara had accused earlier of being responsible for his brother’s death”.
National Light gathered that the youth leader eventually died on April 27, 2022, after battling series of mysterious illnesses, even as he continued going from one healing home to another.
Kosara, who eventually admitted poising his senior brother did not however explain the reason behind his action. He had rather accused his nephew, Herbert, who is sharing the same building with them.
All efforts to contact the state police image maker, Tochukwu Ikenga to know if the matter was reported to the police proved abortive as he was not reachable.
