ENUGU — The devastating news of the cold-blooded murder of her three tender daughters was a huge shock to Mrs. Millicent Amadikwa, a mother of four who after the day’s business came home with her son to meet her daughters dead and hidden in a spoilt freezer in her home.

Millicent and her husband Ifeanyi Amadikwa live with their four children at number 74 Nkwubor Road, Emene in Enugu East LGA, Enugu until the ugly incident on Tuesday, 4th of January, 2022.

On the said day, Millicent went to the market with her only male child, leaving her three daughters in her husband’s care.

She, however, came back in the evening hours but could not find any of her daughters.

While searching for them, the suspect drew her attention to the said freezer he had brought back home from his shop on Sunday 2nd January 2022 and kept in their apartment’s veranda; the lifeless bodies of the girls were in the freezer.

But on closer observation, the lifeless bodies of the children had bruises suggesting that they may have been murdered and dumped in the fridge; some black substance was also seen in their mouth according to the grieving woman.

The lifeless bodies of the children were immediately moved to the hospital, where they were confirmed dead by medical doctors on duty, and deposited in the mortuary for preservation and autopsy.

The dead children are Miss Chidalum Amadikwa aged 11, Miss Amarachi Amadikwa aged 8 and Miss Ebubechukwu Amadikwa aged 4.

So far, Police operatives attached to Enugu Metro Area Command of Enugu State Police Command, on the same sad day at about 1930hrs, arrested the deceased’s father Ifeanyi Amadikwa aged 52.

Mr. Ifeanyi Amadikwa during a preliminary investigation is suspected to have murdered the girls; he is the stepfather of Chidalum and father of Amarachi and Ebubechukwu.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police Abubakar Lawal while commiserating with the mother, relatives, and friends of the deceased children, has assured commitment to thoroughly investigate the case and ensure that justice prevails.

The CP then ordered the Deputy Commissioner in charge of the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department (State CID) to carry out a conclusive investigation of the case and ensure everyone found culpable is brought to book.

This is contained in the Police bulletin signed by ASP Daniel Ndukwe, Police Public Relations Officer, Enugu Headquarters.
