Two brothers murdered and their corpses dumped in car booth in Anambra

The corpses of two brothers were discovered inside the booth of their Toyota Corolla, along the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway, close to Tempo Mills, Umunya, Anambra State.

The brothers, identified as Onyema and Nonso, were believed to have been murdered while on their way home after attending a Church programme along Oguta Road, near Upper Iweka, Onitsha.

Initially, when the gory video of the bodies inside the trunk made the rounds on WhatsApp on Sunday, Jan. 28, most people thought they were the bodies of a husband and wife. But it was later confirmed to be the bodies of the two brothers.

According to a cleric, Venerable Emmanuel Onovo, the deceased were brothers who were members of the Anglican Communion in the state.

Onovo, who is based in Aguleri, stated this in a post he made on his Facebook page.

He wrote, “They are my two sons in the Anglican Children’s Ministry, Omogba, Onitsha years back. I called their parents yesterday to offer them prayers.”

Another Facebook user wrote, “Two blood brothers kidnapped and killed in Anambra State yesterday…Ala Igbo has eaten their own flesh and drank lots of their own bloods.  They attended a church programme at Oguta Road, Onitsha as I was told yesterday only for them to be found at Umunya junction in the trunk of their car!!!  Negodu men. This is really really heartbreaking.”

It is not clear why the brothers were murdered but there are speculations that they were victims of a kidnap attempt. 

The death of the brothers has caused panic in the area.
