A 20-year old housemaid, Chioma Onyegili, was on Wednesday hacked to death by a 31-year-old son of her madam, Okechukwu for allegedly refusing to have sex with him in Onitsha, Anambra State.
It was gathered that the gory incident occurred at about 9.30 pm Wednesday at 56 Zik Avenue, Fegge, Onitsha.
