Angry Nigerian Uncle Convicted Of Killing His Nephew For Wetting Bed

An angry Nigerian uncle has been convicted for killing his three-year-old nephew for wetting the bed the shared. Ben Igbinedion could not curtail his anger when he found out his bed had been soiled by Daniel Evbuomwan.

Out of rage, Ben, of Bromley, Southeast London, reportedly inflicted the little boy with injuries that led to his untimely death. He is now to face a life behind bars after being convicted of Daniel’s murder. The incident took place in the early hours of March 3, 2013.

There were contradictions between Igbinedion’s testimony of the events to the police and the ones that were given by his children about what transpired that early morning.

“Ben Igbinedion’s violent actions resulted in the death of a three-year-old boy who had no chance of defending himself and devastated the lives of two families,” said detective chief inspector Graeme Gwyn after Ben’s verdict.

“Throughout the time since Daniel’s death, Igbinedion has continued to deny any involvement. However, a jury has seen through his story and convicted him of murder.”

“How do I describe the loss of my only child Daniel? Daniel’s death has left me empty, heartbroken, lonely, lost, devastated and confused,” Daniel’s mother, Augustina Kunu said in a statement that was read by the court. “I cannot concentrate or focus on my studies, I am unable to sleep and when I am able I wake up in tears because I can no longer see him lying by my side. I cannot get over Daniel’s death because of the bond we had.”

She added: “He was a brilliant son, a friend, a star, a hero and a help-mate. He would look into my eyes and say, ‘Mummy how are you?’ His death has affected my marriage, leaving it empty because Daniel was our dream, the pride and crown of our marriage.
“His dad, Victor, has been left broken-hearted, confused, lonely and empty. This whole matter has pulled our family apart. My prayer is that God will restore peace to our families.”

According to the pathologist in the case, the injuries the 44-year-old uncle inflicted on his little nephew were the worst he had seen since he has been in his job.”His violent actions resulted in the death of a boy who had no chance of defending himself,” said, detective chief inspector Graeme Gwyn.

Daniel was sent from Nigeria by Augustina and his doctor father, Victor, to stay with his grandmother, the Old Bailey was told.

On the night of the killing, the grandmother wanted to go to church, so she took the boy to sleep over at Igbinedion and his wife Sandra’s home in Bromley, south-east London.

Mrs Igbinedion went out to work a night shift as a nurse and when she returned, Daniel was still in bed and there was no sign of her husband.
