A 21-year-old man, identified simply as Chukwudi, is currently at large after allegedly killing his father and mother in Nnewi, Anambra state.
It was gathered that the suspect allegedly killed his parents after a heated argument over their refusal to give him money.
A source said the decomposing body of the couple, said to have been murdered by their only son, was discovered by neighbors, who broke into their apartment when they started perceiving an offensive smell from their apartment on Thursday evening, September 22, 2022.
