Delta CP, Mr Muhammad Mustafa

A 75 year old man identified as Elder Evawire Umukoro aka Adisco has murdered his daughter in-law, Oghenerobor Williams and killed himself.

The incident which happened last week in Ozoro was said to have thrown the town into pandemonium.

The culprit, a hunter and former community leader was said to be in cold relationship with his son.

The son and late wife had gone to the farm to harvest cassava but the late woman’s husband had returned to the farm to collect other load when his wife was killed by his father.

Reports said the old man shot at his daughter in-law with a gun and after she was dead he locked himself in his room, fired several shots before aiming the gun at himself and died.

The motive of his action had not been determined but the police have begun investigation into the incident.

The late woman, 30 was said to be alone with the father in-law in the compound when the attack was launched as her husband had returned to the farm and the children were in school.

Meanwhile, the remains of the deceased (father and daughter in-law) have been deposited in the mortuary.
