A 23-year-old drug addict has killed his father, sister and injured six neighbors in Ifelemenu, Ekpaomaka in Ikwo Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.
The young man was said to have lost it over the weekend, killing his father Chief Nwode Nwigboaka and his sister, whose name is been withheld.
Julius Nwigboaka who was said to have high on drugs when he committed the atrocities was later gunned down by the husband of one of the victims of his attack.
An eyewitness said Julius had just returned home when his father queried him of his whereabouts. He immediately descended on his father with a machete. His sister who came in to meet the attack asked him to leave their father, but he also attacked and killed her.
