Police Arrest Lady For Allegedly Poisoning, Killing Her 3-Year-Old Step-Son In Enugu

The Enugu State Police Command have confirmed the arrest of a 29-year-old Nnenna Egwuagu, who poisoned and murdered her 3-year-old stepson, Wisdom Egwuagu.

  • The suspect

The suspect confessed to using a poisonous substance on the little child—which the Enugu police believed to be “sniper insecticide”. She did this so that Wisdom could fall ill and her husband, Justin Egwuagu, would accrue more expenses treating him.

From her interrogation, her husband and father of the late child, Justin, does not take proper care of her and her own daughter; and this also led her to commit the heinous act.

However, Mr Justin reported this terrible incident to the police based on her actions towards the deceased child. Meanwhile, the victim’s corpse has been deposited in a nearby mortuary for autopsy. 

Also, the container of the poisonous liquid and syringe Mrs Nnenna used in administering the substance to the late child have been recovered by the police, and it will be used for further investigation and prosecution.
