Man Presents Stolen Cow At Father-In-Law’s Funeral

It was gathered Ota visited the family house of his in-laws on Friday with a female cow he allegedly stole from his community to present it for the burial of their late father.

Unfortunately for him, the owner of the stolen native cow, Thomas Agbo, who came to sympathize with the family of the deceased, was able to identify the cow being presented by the son-in-law as his missing cow and raised an alarm.

Agbo said he went for a routine check on the cow in the bush four days before the burial date of his neighbor’s father-in-law but could not see the cow where it was tied.

He explained that he was surprised to see the stolen cow at Ebia Unuphu Community where he went to commiserate with the family of Okemini Oyibe.

“Ikenna Ogbonna Ota is my neighbour. I knew his father-in-law was dead and the burial was slated for 9th of December. Days before the ceremony, one of my cows went missing.

“All efforts by my children to find it were not successful until I coincidentally saw it being presented at Ebia Unuhu by IKenna for the burial rites of his father-in-law,” he said

When interrogated, the suspect said he did not steal the cow, alleging that he bought it at the sum of N110,000 (One hundred and ten thousand naira only) from a man known as ‘Mr. No Time’ at Azu-Ebonyi, Amachi Unuphu, a neighboring village to Azuoto Okpuitumo.

The police say that the suspect would be charged to court after the investigation.

KanyiDaily had also reported how a young man was caught red-handed after he tried to get away with a dozen canned fish which he allegedly stole from a supermarket in Lagos.
