CP orders thorough probe as Father kills his 3 Children, packs their bodies inside freezer

Police in Enugu have arrested a 52 year old man for allegedly killing his 3 female children in Enugu.

The man identified as Ifeanyi Amadikwa was nabbed by the Police after he killed and dumped the corpses of his 3 children in a spoilt freezer in his apartment at Nkwubor road, Emene in Enugu State.

Reports say the Mother of the Children went to the market and left them behind in the house with their Father but couldn’t find them when she came back.

Enugu State Police Commissioner, Abubakar Lawal through its Public Relation Officer, Daniel Ndukwe confirmed the incident while speaking with newsmen concerning the incident.


He said, “Operatives attached to Enugu Metro Area Command of Enugu State Police Command on 04/01/2022 arrested one male suspect, Ifeanyi Amadikwa aged 52, Enugu, for allegedly murdering and dumping in a spoilt deep freezer fridge”.

“Preliminary investigation showed that the suspect’s wife and mother of the children, went to the market with her only male child on 04/01/2022, leaving the others in the suspect’s custody. She, however, came back in the evening hours of the said date and could not find any of the three children. But while searching for them, the suspect drew her attention to the said fridge he had brought back home from his shop on 02/01/2022 and kept in their apartment’s veranda. And 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.

“Meanwhile, 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.

The CP while commiserating with the familiy of the deceased said the Police will leave no stone unturned for justice to prevail.

According to the Police boss, he has ordered the Deputy Commissioner in charge of the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department (State CID for short) to conduct a conclusive investigation into the case and ensure everyone found culpable is brought to book.
