The suspect, confessed to the crime after he was tortured by local vigilante.



Chima Anolue, a lecturer at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State, got more than he bargained for when he argued with his domestic worker on Friday night.

The deceased, who lectured at the Psychology Department, Faculty of Social Sciences of the institution, had reportedly scolded his killer for letting the rice he was cooking get burnt, unknown to him that the incident would lead to his untimely end.

Angered by the disrespectful attitude of his employee, Anolue was said to have slapped the domestic worker, who in turn engaged him in a fight.

Houseboy allegedly kills his employer with a pestle in Anambra.

The suspect, who initially denied killing his master, confessed to the crime after he was tortured by local vigilante guards.

Confessing in a viral video, the suspect said, “When he (his master) came back, he told me to cook rice. And as I was cooking the rice, he asked me why I did not wash my plates. I did not reply. He then asked why I wasn’t responding to his question.

“In the process, he slapped me. But I told him I usually have ear problems and that people don’t slap me. As I was saying that, he angrily asked if I was still talking while he was talking. And therefore, he slapped me again, brought out Cain, and started flogging me all over.

“Then, in the process, I got angry, and we started fighting. In the process of that fight, I picked up the pestle in the kitchen and hit him on the head.”

The suspect was taken to a hospital, where Anolue was rushed after the attack.

With his hands tied behind his back, he stood in front of his employer’s lifeless body, which was in a hospital bed.

Anolue’s head was seen wrapped with a bandage, indicating that he bled heavily while fighting for his life. The suspect was later taken away to where the guards threatened him.

A man pointed a riffle towards him and threatened to pull the trigger, to which he cried, “Daddy, please, don’t kill me.”

Meanwhile, tributes have been pouring in for the deceased lecturer.

In a Facebook post, one Arinze Uzoagu wrote, “Chima was my brother. A wonderful chorister and an exemplary choir leader. He comes from one of the finest families in Igboukwu; his parents have loved me like their son since my undergraduate days.

Chima, my brother, went viral yesterday not because of all the exemplary virtues bestowed upon him by God… But he was gruesomely murdered by their house help just because my brother scolded him for letting the food on fire get burnt.

“Not once, not twice, but three times, this animal hit Chima with a pestle on his skull.…. Chima wasn’t kidnapped; he didn’t have a road accident or die in his sleep. His beautiful young, promising life was cut short right inside his home by a person they housed, clothed, fed and paid. I don’t know how I feel or have felt since yesterday.”

Iyke Ezoms said: “I am pained; Chima has been asking the mum to send the idiot back to their house because he does not like his behaviour. How will amiable Dr Ify Anolue and their Husband survive this painful loss? I have been in pain since yesterday. Really sad, Arinze Uzoagu.”

Prince Tony Ezeimo wrote: “No blame should go to the dead… However, I advise that no one should ever house an Abakiliki person. That is suicidal!!!”

DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, Police Public Relations Officer in Anambra, said the matter had not been reported to the police when this report was filed.
