The mother of late notorious criminal, and kidnap kingpin, Henry Onyekachi Chibueze, also known as Vampire who was killed few weeks ago by the police says her son was an evil child, who had always acted like someone possessed by Agwu (Evil spirit).
Vampire’s mother has spoken on the evil of her child
Mrs Beatrice Chibueze told the Sun that her son committed his first murder when he was just 12 years old during a fight with his fellow pupil, while still in primary five at Umuokpu Community Primary School.
Recall that Vampire was gunned down on March 2, at Umuowa bush in Ikwerre LGA of Rivers state by a combined team of Inspector General of Police Special Response unit from the Rivers State Police Command and Imo State Police Command.
According to her, it was the incident that ended his formal education in primary
Vampire was said to have refused to learn any trade, but rather joined some criminals called hunters from the neighboring community who smoked and engaged in stealing people’s goats and fowls, which they either sold or killed and ate.
The mother further disclosed that vampire later started a motorcycle business on a hire purchase basis, operating around Isu and Anara in Isiala Mbano mostly at night, returning to the village in the early hours of the morning.
She said: “Henry Onyekachi Chibueze was born in 1981. My late husband had enrolled him at the Community School Umuokpu in Abaja, but he had to drop out at primary five after he killed his classmate during a fight at school and he was just 12 years old.
“That incident caused the family a lot of problem and my late husband had to pay compensation to the family of the boy before the matter was resolved. Henry had always acted like somebody who was possessed by Agwu (Evil spirit) and at a time the family had thought of making a sacrifice to the gods of the land to see if that could make him act responsibly.
“when he dropped out from primary school he refused to learn any vocational skill, but had instead joined some bad boys in the community where he started this armed robbery and kidnapping.
“Even though our family is a polygamous one, my late husband had ensured that all his children were educated, but it was only my son who refused to be useful like his other brothers and sisters.
“In fact, it was the disgrace and shame brought to the family that led to the death of my late husband, who developed hypertension and died eventually.”
Meanwhile, families of detained suspects in DSS custody have spoken on the trials of their children.
