Graphic Photos: Man Kills Cousin Over Mango In Abia
A man identified as Mr. Chinedu Omeonu has been dragged to the police for killing his cousin, Solomon Orji, at Mgboko Umuoria community in Obingwa council area of Abia State.
An eyewitness said that Orji’s son had gone to Omeonu’s residence to pluck some mango fruits, but the latter flogged and assaulted the little boy mercilessly.
When the boy’s father was informed about what happened to his son, he went to Omeonu’s residence to inquire about the incident.
“Solomon’s son went to his father’s cousin residence to pluck some mangoes, but the owner, Omeonu beat up him up. I think there were some problems between both families.

Angered by the incident, youths of the community arrested Omeonu, beat him to pulp before handing him over to the Police.
When contacted about the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, Abia State Command, SP Geoffrey Ogbonna, said he was not aware of the incident.
