From Macpaul Ezeznwa – Owerri
A 30-year old security man, David Kwaguru, who allegedly murdered his boss, Mr. Innocent Ndukwe, in cold blood in connivance with two others, Friday Awuba and Francis Amos at Egbu in Owerri, the Imo state capital, has been arrested alongside his accomplices by Policemen attached to the state Police Command.
The victim, a final year student of Civil Engineering at the Federal Polytechnic Nekede, was stabbed to death after he was tied up with electric cable by the suspects who are all from Plateau State.
Parading the suspects, the State Commissioner of Police, Taiwo Lakanu, described the arrest of the suspects as a major breakthrough in the fight against crime and criminality in the state.
Acording to him, “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 police boss in the state appealed to the residents of the state to avail the Police of useful information that will aid in the fight against crime and criminalities in the state by calling the phone numbers provided for that purpose, advising that thorough security checks should be conducted before hiring security guards.
Meanwhile, the prime suspect said they were lured into committing the crime to raise money to travel home for the Christmas celebration.
