Sorcery: Head Teacher Accused, Killed In Imo State By Youth

A 57-year-old man, Cosmas Nwaiwu, the Head Teacher of Obolo Primary School, Ehime Mbano, has been killed by irate youths from Nneoche Umuoma Nzerem in Ehime Mbano LGA of Imo State.

Nwaiwu  was murdered on Wednesday, November 29, 2017, on the allegation that he was “diabolically diverting the destiny” of three members of his extended family.

It was also gathered that a relation also accused him of being responsible for the death of her husband. Sequel to these accusations, the youths of the area allegedly mobilised one another and besieged his house, murdered Nwaiwu and then burned his body.

A close family source however, revealed that Nwaiwu was killed as result of envy by his relations who felt he had made progress in life ahead of them. He said:

“He was not diabolical at all. As a teacher who was nearing the retirement age, he managed to build a bungalow of four rooms. But his relations, who neither went to school nor learnt a trade, cooked up the story that he was the one bewitching them.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Andrew Enwerem, confirmed the incident and said, “We have arrested three suspects, including the President General of the community, Mr. Nnanna Okonkwo, in connection with the incident and thorough investigations are in progress.”
