He broke into national limelight in early May 2013 when he was shown on the television across the country while being paraded by police officers attached to Imo State Police Command who accused him of sleeping in the same house with the corpse of his mother for 10 years.
The accused, Chimezie Osigwe, a retired school principal, immediately became a subject of discussion among Nigerians.
While some described him as a cultist, others accused him of being a ritualist who had allegedly killed his mother, and later kept her corpse for ritual purpose.

While the debate raged, the police later charged Osigwe to court for murder. He was arraigned before Justice Goddy Anunihu. However, at the end of his trial, which lasted over a year, Osigwe was finally discharged and acquitted on November 25, 2014 by the trial judge.
In an encounter with Saturday Sun last week in Ibadan, Osigwe, who expressed joy that he has regained his freedom, however, pointed fingers at some of his kinsmen in his native Oguta community in Imo State as being the brains behind his ordeal.
According to him, some of his own relations and elders in Ezuru Umuagwu in Oguta colluded with the police to frame him on murder charge. “How can I murder my own mother? How can I murder an 80-year-old woman that gave birth to me? Why? These people just framed me up, using police to achieve their diabolical plan,” he declared. Osigwe, who told our reporter that his mother died as a result of collapse of a section of the wall in his house, further added that immediately the incident happened, he informed some of his siblings, and elders in the community, adding that they all later commiserated with him. While saying that he was shocked by the sudden turn of events that led to his arrest, Osigwe attributed it to a dispute he had with a relation who later decided to report him to the police that he had been sleeping with a corpse for about 10 years.
