It still feels like a movie to my wife, who works at a financial facility in Nsukka. Weekends were when he usually went back home. Then he would stay for a few days before going back to work.

“The last time he came, we ate together as usual. It was on a Sunday. In fact, I went to buy food items at Ikpa Market that day. When I returned from the market, he was not satisfied, and returned to buy more. He said that what I bought wasn’t enough.

“After that day, he left for his place of work. I recall his friend telling him not to return that day, but he insisted. My last encounter with him was on phone. I believe that it was while we were talking that those that killed him launched the attack. This is because while we were talking, he suddenly stopped responding. There was a sound I didn’t understand. I could hear some background noise.

“Shortly, the call cut. I thought that he would return the call, but he did not. He was asking about the health of one of his kids who was sick. That was all, till today.”

It was gathered that the late cop is the only son of his parents.

The source said the wife had been subjected to going to Enugu State Police Command to sign one document or the other.
He said, “She also goes to Ogrute Police Station where her husband served for the same documentation. It has not been easy with the family. Obodo was the breadwinner of the family. So, the burden is becoming heavy on the wife. Apart from carrying the family alone in terms of feeding, medicare, and the rest, the processes involved in getting him buried are being made difficult by a series of tests being conducted before his corpse could be released.

“She has gone to Enugu about five times, and the journey has not ended; the same way she goes to Ogrute Police Station regularly. The husband served under Ogrute Police Division before his death. He was guarding the owner of Royal Mass Transit on the day he was killed.”
