Three young men who killed their boss so as to steal his properties have confessed why they murdered the man.
The three young men who murdered their boss in Owerri, Imo State, so they could steal his properties, have all confessed their roles in the killing of the 25-year-old final year Civil Engineering student of the Federal Polytechnic, Nekede, Innocent Ndukwe.
The trio of David Kwaguru, Friday Ayuba and Francis Amos, all from Plateau State, had reportedly stabbed Ndukwe to death and packed his properties into his Nissan Pathfinder SUV, and were about going to their place to enjoy the forthcoming Christmas before they were nabbed by men of the State Police Command.
While they were paraded by the Commissioner of Police in the state, Taiwo Lakanu, Kwaguru, the master mind in the murder who was Ndukwe's secutiry man, narrated how they killed the man.
“Since oga Ndukwe had the money (because of his wealthy parents) and expensive household electronics, we decided to kill him, put the devices inside his vehicle and drive to Plateau State where we come from.
We waited and monitored him. And when he went into the toilet, we broke the door open, tied his hands and legs and started stabbing him all over his body.
We stabbed him several times in the neck and abdomen so that he would die quickly. After killing him, we drove off in the jeep only to be nabbed by the police at West End Road in Owerri.”
Ayuba, in his confession, said it was Amos who first hit the deceased while he stabbed him in the stomach.
“It was Kwagwuru who told us about the student. Since we are all from the same state, we decided to run back to Plateau after the crime, and not to return to the South-East ever again. We also planned to sell the vehicle and other valuables and share the loot.”
