The police spokesman said they were arrested in connection to the murder of their brother, one Chinonso Emenyionu.
“Preliminary investigation reveals that the late Chinonso was protesting the formula used in the sharing of the Father’s property, as a result of which he picked up a machete and threatened to cut his mum.
