Abia Vigilante Kills US-based Bizman, Nabbed In Port Harcourt.

The Nigerian police, Rivers state command, have arrested one Okorie Chukwuma for alleged murder of his boss, Eyinaya Ogbona. Chukwuma, who is a member of a local vigilante group in Abia state allegedly killed Ogbonna, a US-based businessman after which he fled to Port Harcourt, where he was nabbed by security operatives after selling off the businessman’s car.

2n-network learnt that the US-based businessman returned home recently to start a gas station in Abia state where he also employed the suspect to supervise his project. However, the latter connived with another vigilante to snub life out of his benefactor after a disagreement.

According to Rivers State Police Public Relations Officer, Nnamdi Omoni;

“This young man (Chukwuma) is from Abia State and also works there. One Eyinnaya Ogbonna, a resident of US who came to Nigeria to build a gas station in Abia State, employed him and one other in his gas station. The deceased got this man through a vigilance group. All of a sudden, he developed animosity for Ogbonna. Precisely on Sunday, the owner of the gas station went there. One thing led to the other and the man was shot from behind. He fell on the spot and died.” 

Omoni added that though the River state police command has recovered the gun and other exhibits, it is yet to have the second suspect in its custody.

“The suspect, in continuing his criminal act, decided to take the man’s Venza car for sale and took it to Port Harcourt, whereupon he was intercepted by the police and arrested. We have recovered a pump-action gun, the man’s clothes and other exhibits. Investigation is ongoing. The second suspect is in Abia State as we speak. We are going to bring him,” the spokesperson added.
