Father allegedly k!lls his 3 children and hid their corpses in a deep freezer at a town in Nigeria.
A 52-year-old man, Ifeanyi Amadikwa, has allegedly killed his three children and hid their corpses in a deep freezer at their apartment in Enugu State.
They were identified as 11-year-old Chidalum Amadikwa, 8-year-old Amarachi Amadikwa, and 4-year-old Ebubechukwu Amadikwa.
The man, Ifeanyi Amadikwa, 52, dumped the bodies of the children in a fridge, the police spokesperson in Enugu State, Daniel Ndukwe, said in a statement on Wednesday.
Amadikwa had taken advantage of his wife’s absence from the house to murder the three children.
The suspect, Amadikwa, who resides at 74 Nkwubor Road in Emene, near Enugu, was apprehended on Jan. 4 at approximately 7:30 p.m., according to Ndukwe.
The children’s mother was gone at the market when Amadikwa committed the crime, according to ANdukwe.
He was heard saying;
“Preliminary investigation showed that the suspect’s wife and mother of the children went to the market with her only male child on January 4, leaving the others in the suspect’s custody.
“She, however, came back in the evening hours of the said date and could not find any of the three children.
“But while searching for them, the suspect drew her attention to the said fridge he had brought back home from his shop on January 2 and kept in their apartment’s veranda.
“And on a closer observation, the lifeless bodies of the children were found in the fridge with bruises, suggesting that they might have been murdered and dumped in the fridge,”
