The Delta State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Bright Edafe, said that four suspects have been arrested in connection with the murder of two men, whose corpses were found abandoned in the bathroom.
Edafe explained that the police got to know about the incident on the 16th of November, 2022, following a complaint from a distressed caller to the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in charge of Sapele Police Division, at about 9:am.
According to the caller, he discovered that his landlord, named Uguru Dominic, 29, and his male friend, whose name and address are unknown, were found dead in the bathroom.
Edafe said: “They were suspected to have been murdered by unknown persons, and that the suspects made away with the victim’s Toyota Corolla car with Registration number ABJ 271 white in colour, the DPO detailed detectives to unravel the mystery behind the deaths. Consequently, the team swung into action, and embarked on an intelligence-led investigation which led to the arrest of Ogadinma Francis, 27, aka “Gentle,” and the deceased’s car recovered from him. Francis confessed that he did a filling job for the deceased and after working for him, he refused to pay him the agreed amount. The suspect also stated that he conspired with his friends to commit the crime.”
The Police, acting on Francis’s confession, arrested three accomplices namely, Goodnews Abaje, 30, Obunwa Kasim, 25 and Bright Osifo, 23.
“They stated that the initial plan was to rob the victim, they tied them up till about 4:30 am and then forced him to transfer the sum of N36, 000 to one of the suspects’ accounts. They further stated that they decided to kill both of them because they felt the victims recognised them and would report them to the Police,” said Edafe.
