A boy, aged 17, has been reportedly murdered by his family Houseboy in Anambra State.

The boy fought with Chima, who had not done his household duties, and later attacked him.

When captured, the boy admitted to hitting Chima with a pestle, but Chima slapped him, leading to a fight.

The boy used both a kitchen knife and pestle on Chima, indicating he was deliberate in his intention to kill him.

The boy, from Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, is now being handed over to the Nigerian Police Force’s Awka division for further questioning.

The corpse of Chima has been deposited in the morgue for autopsy.
