Man on the run after hacking off friend's penis over Ludo game

Police in Anambra State have issued an arrest warrant for a man, Ifeanyi Eziechine, who murdered his friend Sunday Ikwunyelu over a ludo game.

According to Orientdaily, Eziechine hit the deceased, a father of six children, with a heavy object which took him off balance before cutting off his penis with a knife.

Maryrose, the wife of the deceased, recounting the sad story said:

I was in front of my shop playing ludo game with one nurse Rebecca when Ifeanyi, who hap­pens to be my husband’s brother, joined us.
He requested to be allowed to participate in the game but I declined on the ground that he often caused trouble each time he participated and lost out in the game. Sometimes, it would lead to wanton destruction of some items in my shop and the compound. It was on that note that he took offence and this led to ex­change of words. He abused me and called me all sorts of unprint­able names.
My husband was not around then but when he came back, somebody else told him how Ifeanyi abused me right in my shop. This made my husband to confront Ifeanyi.
It was that confrontation that led to a fight on that Tuesday morning between the two and my husband, out of anger, confiscated his motorcycle ignition key, insist­ing that he must pay for all the damages he caused in my shop.
This incident happened in the morning but, around 6:30 pm, they started fighting again. Ifeanyi attacked him with a heavy weapon from behind. He was still struggling for survival when he grabbed his genitals and cut it off with a knife.

Ezinchine is now on the run. An elder in Akpulu village where the incident occured said the murderer will die by hanging as with their custom if found guilty after he is caught. He will be compelled to take his own life.
