It was tragedy over the weekend for the family of Egom in Benin City as their Malaysian based son, Olisemeka Egom was shot dead after he was said to have called off his wedding when he discovered that his would-be wife was carrying a three month old questionable pregnancy.
He was said to have returned home to marry the girl who had a baby boy for him and has been living with his parents since he traveled out last year.
“My son and the girlfriend Judith have not been quarreling before, but when my son arrived last August he accused the girl of carrying another man’s pregnancy.
The girl agreed but said my son was responsible. My son said it was impossible because he has not been around, the last time he visited Nigeria was July 2017.
He said he would not go ahead with the wedding. So this was the issue on ground. My son opened a well-stocked baby items shop for her. and said it was because of his son.”
He further accused the girl of complicity in the brutal murder of his son.
Police said a case of murder was reported and advised the bereaved family to come forth with information.
