A primary two pupil, Chibuike Oramalu, has been detained by the Enugu State Police Command for alleged murder. The command detained the seven-year-old Chibuike over the death of a 12-year-old boy, Oluebube Boniface, on May 29, 2016.

According to the suspect’s mother, Mrs. Nwakaego Oramalu, Chibuike has been in detention since May 30.

Nwakaego, a single mother of five children, said the incident that led to her son’s arrest and detention happened at a residence in the Independence Layout area of Enugu, where she worked as a housekeeper. She explained that the owner of the property, Mr. Edwin Oforma, gave her an accommodation in the house, adding that she lived there with her children.
