Prior to this time, the family have fought over ancestral inheritances and it was revealed that Dominic’s father, Odinma Adiele, was reportedly killed in a similar circumstance about 15 years ago by the same Patrick.
Dominic’s death brought commotion in the community as his maternal relatives arrived Uziezike on Tuesday, May 29, to burn down Patrick’s home and his economic trees. However, the relatives did not do it alone but with the help of angry mobs.
