Blood money in Imo state
The suspects who are all from Plateau State, allegedly carried out the cruel act at Egbu in Owerri, the capital of the state, when they tied up Ndukwe with electric cables and stabbed him to death before making away with the victim's vehicle, and other household items.
While parading the suspects at the State Police Headquarter, the Commissioner of Police, Taiwo Lakanu, described the arrest of the suspects as a major breakthrough in the fight against crime in the state.
"The assailants, after slaughtering their victim, made away with his Pathfinder SUV with registration number KRD 109 BP, two Plasma TV sets, one home theatre and assorted personal effects.
The Police Control Room quickly alerted operatives of the Command who immediately cobwebbed the entire state. As a result, the assailants who tried to escape the eagle-eyed operatives, were apprehended along West-End old Nekede road, Owerri.”
The prime suspect, Kwaguru, who was Ndukwe's gate man, has confessed to the police that he convinced the others to join him to kill his boss so as to raise enough money to travel home for the Christmas celebration.
