If there is anything to remember about Comrade Kenechukwu Okeke, it must be his ardent supports for president Muhammadu Buhari and his controversial stance against the Nigerian Youths who protested against the police brutality that led to a nationwide outcry in 2020, Thecitypulsenews.
Today, Kenechukwu Okeke, is dead but not in a friendly way. He died a horrible and painful death in the hand of his tenant and in the presence of his wife and daughter in Anambra State.
Narrating how it all happened to our source, Nigerian the deceased wife, Mrs. Blessing said his husband killer has remained untouchable despite all efforts to get police to arrest him and get justice for her late husband.
According to her, the tenant, simply identified as Chiadiobi had decided to pack out of their house without notifying them. He later came back to demand for the refund of his two months rent. When he came, the husband was not around and the wife simply told him that he could not get his balance because he didn’t notify them he would be leaving untimely.
Chiadiobi therefore threatened to deal with the husband who as at then was not around. His wife called to explain what happened to him and how he needed to be very careful with the tenant who is known to be notorious for hooliganism in Nkpor area of Anambra State.
When the husband returned, the matter was reported to the police and DSS where the tenant was made to write an undertaking. Unfortunately, the move didn’t change the course of ugly scenario that later happened.
He reportedly came back to the house one morning and forcefully made his entrance through the gate. Sensing he was around, the husband came out of his apartment to confront him. Unknowing to the late Okeke, the tenant had come with about seven boys who descended on him and macheted him.
The petrol which was meant for the landlord to fuel his generator was taken by the boys, poured it on him and consequently light him up. He was burnt beyond measure. Every attempt to put out the fire produced little or no result. By the time he got to the hospital, he had reportedly died.
The macheting and burning of Comrade Okeke happened in the presence of his wife and only daughter.
The wife further narrated that since her husband death, there has not been any arrest. No one had come for the burial arrangement. They have been left to handle things alone. The incident was said to have happened around October.
It was also learnt that the alleged killer went to threaten the aged mother of the late comrade, warning her to back down from any attempt to take up the matter relating to her son’s death. If she tries anything, he would come for her.
The wife lamented that she does not understand the position of police on the matter any more. She confirmed that the boy is a miscreant who constitute a threat to people in the area. Hence, he appears to be untouchable.
When our source contacted the state Police Command on the matter, the Spokesperson of the Command, DSP Tochukwu Ikenganyia stated that police was aware of the matter but could not give a comprehensive details as at then.
Late Kenechukwu Okeke, before he was killed was said to have dragged Davido, Falze and other top celebrities to court for daring to stage a protest against president Muhammadu Buhari on the basis of Endsaars campaign.
