The family of a 5-year-old, Osinachi Stephen, who was found dead in a car at Egbu in Owerri, Imo State, has demanded justice for him.
According to the late boy’s grandma, Mrs. Stella Aguguo, who claimed she couldn’t believe that a boy she had sent on an errand to buy sachet water was found dead three days later.
The 50-year-old widow also revealed that the death of her grandson, who had dreamed of becoming a Catholic priest, had affected her health.
Read her statement below: “I took Osinachi to live with me when he was one year old. He was brought to me from Borno State in the heat of the Boko Haram insurgency in the northeast. His father, my first son, is a military officer serving in the northeast.
“Since then, I stayed with him and he said he wanted to become a Catholic priest,” he said.
“The people who live on the property where he was found dead have a case to answer. Those who killed my grandson should not go scot-free.”
