The Enugu State Police Command arrested 52-year-old man, Ifeanyi Amadikwa, over alleged murder of his three female children at 74 Nkwubor Road, Emene, Enugu state.

The suspect allegedly killed the girls namely: Chidalum Amadikwa, aged 11 (who is his step-daughter), Amarachi Amadikwa, aged 8 and Ebubechukwu Amadikwa, aged 4, and dumped their bodies in a spoilt deep freezer.

According to police investigation, the suspect’s wife and mother of the children, went to the market with her only male child, leaving the other children with the suspect at their home. She, however, came back in the evening of the said date and could not find any of the three children.

While searching for them, the suspect drew her attention to the said fridge he had brought back home from his shop on January 2nd and kept in their apartment’s veranda. On a closer observation, the lifeless bodies of the children were found in the fridge with bruises, suggesting that they might have been murdered and dumped in the fridge.

Confirming the incident to newsmen, the spokesperson of the state police command, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, said the lifeless bodies of the children were immediately moved to the hospital, where they were confirmed dead by medical doctors on duty, and deposited in the mortuary for preservation and autopsy.

While commiserating with the mother of the deceased children, Ndukwe said the state Commissioner of Police, CP Abubakar Lawal, has given assurance that the police will thoroughly investigate the case and ensure that justice prevails.
