Court remanded man for beheading two year old boy and drank his blood

An Ebonyi State Magistrates ’ Court , on Friday, remanded a 26- year – old man , Christian Nweke , in a correctional facility for beheading a two -year – old boy , Onyedikachi Nwali .

The suspect, reports gathered, allegedly beheaded the two – year – old boy and drank his blood , while the mother went to fetch water from the stream.

It was learnt that the suspect , who confessed to the crime , was a barber in Onitsha , Anambra State , and was allegedly suffering from chest pains, until he was brought to the Church of Christ Mission , Ugbaenyim Ezza, Umuhuali community, in the Ishielu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, where the boy and his parents were seeking spiritual help .

Asked if he was a ritualist or sent to kill and suck the blood of the boy for money rituals , the suspect said , “ No.

I ’ m not a ritualist. Nobody sent me to kill anybody .

But I noticed that since the prophetess of this prayer ministry prayed for me , a lot of things have changed and I no longer reason right . ”

It was alleged that the suspect committed the crime on December 13 , 2019 , at the premises of the Church of Christ Mission , Ugbaenyim Ezza.

He was , on Friday, arraigned before the magistrates’ court on one count of murder.

The police prosecutor , Sergeant Sebastine Alumona , said the offence was punishable under Section 319 (1 ) of the Criminal Code , Cap . 33, Vol. 1 , Laws of Ebonyi State of Nigeria, 2009 .

The defence counsel applied to the court that his client be admitted to bail as he would not interfere with lawful investigation into the matter.

Alumona , however, opposed the bail application and told the court that the suspect would jump bail and interfere with investigation into the matter.

In her ruling , Chief Magistrate Nnenna Onuoha, said the court lacked the jurisdiction to grant bail on such cases .

She directed that the accused be remanded in the Nigerian Correctional Centre , Abakaliki , while his case file should be transferred to the Director of Public Prosecutions in the state for advice .

She adjourned the matter till January 17, 2020, for the report of compliance.
