Irate Youths Kill Headmaster, Set Corpse On Fire In Imo
A serving school head teacher, Mr. Cosmas Nwaiwu, has been reportedly killed by irate youths from Nneoche Umuoma Nzerem in the Ehime Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State.
The State police command has also confirmed the arrest of three of the suspects involved in the act.
The victim’s body was said to have been set ablaze after he was allegedly lynched by the youths from the community.
Southern City News gathered on Tuesday that the head teacher was lynched on the allegation that he was diabolically manipulating the destiny of three members of his extended family.
Sequel to these accusations, the youths of the area allegedly mobilised one another and besieged his house, murdered Nwaiwu and then burnt his body.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Andrew Enwerem, confirmed the incident.
Enwerem said, “We have arrested three suspects, including the President General of the community, Mr. Nnanna Okonkwo, in connection with the incident and thorough investigations are in progress.”
