Imo State Police Command said investigators are now on the trail of a landlord and his five children who were accused of killing one of their tenants, Udochukwu Iwuoha, whose traditional wedding was slated for today (Saturday).

But he has assured the family that the suspects would be tracked down and apprehended.

According to Iwuoha’s elder brother, Gerald, the victim was stabbed with a knife during the fight.

He said in a Facebook post, “This is how my little brother was killed for telling his landlord to move out his poultry from his room window because of the smell that the poultry generate in his room,

“Yoyo as I always call you, rest in peace but the landlord will pay dearly for this wicked act of crime against humanity.”

The landlord has been identified as Mr. Paul Oparaugo. Police say they will get him.
