On the surface, it sound like the narration of a nollywood movie where Chiwetalu Agu and his gang of evil men will confess to all their wicked crime before breathing the last. 

But this is a real life situation which occurred on the 6th of October, in Enugu state. 

During the mourning period for the death of one Thomas Ezeugwu of Nkpologwu town in Uzouwani LGA, 3 men allegedly confessed that they conspired to kill the deceased over a land dispute.

The 3 men who are in police custody consulted 2 native doctors in Omor town in Anambra state and invoked voodoo on the said land, to the effect that anyone who steps into it shall die. 

According to the Police, the suspects Okolo Nicholas,Peter Ezugwu and Augustine Ezeugwu, all native of the same town with the dead, but reside in Onitsha, attended the funeral and in an unclear twist, called a village meeting and revealed how they conspired to eliminate the deceased for selling 20 plots of their communal land without their consent.

Read the full statement from the Public Relations Officer of the Enugu state command of the Police, Ebere Amaraizu:
