A 25-year-old final year Civil Engineering student of the Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Owerri, Imo State, Mr. Innocent Ndukwe has been murdered by three suspected assailants.
According to the state Commissioner of Police Mr. Taiwo Lakanu, the suspects, after slaughtering their victim made away with his Pathfinder SUV with Reg. No. KRD-109AD, two plasma TV sets, one home theatre and assorted personal effects.
The body of Innocent, who was his parents’ only child was discovered in his toilet by his pregnant girlfriend who is now on admission in the hospital due to the trauma.
The assailants, who tried to escape the eagle-eyed operatives, were subsequently apprehended along West End-Old Nekede Road, Owerri.
According to Mr. Lakanu, the late Ndukwe was found in a pool of his own blood in a toilet in his residence at 18 Enuwa Street, Egbu, in the Owerri North Local Government Area.
He gave the names of the all-male suspects who later confessed to the crime as David Kwaguru, 30, from Sirwo in Langtang North Local Government Area of Plateau State; Friday Ayuba, 28, a native of Keyelda in Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State and Francis Amos, 23, a native of Pingali in Langtang South Local Government Area also in Plateau State.
The Imo police boss recalled that his initiative of directing Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers, DPOs, and Heads of Departments, HODs, and other high ranking officers in the state to disseminate their phone numbers to members of the public for effective communication and intelligence gathering, had continued to yield fruits and assisted the Police in clamping down on the suspects.
Lakanu appealed to members of the public to be careful and circumspect in choosing the people they employed as security guards.
“Events have since proved that most security guards often turn against their masters by collaborating with criminals to deal with them,” the CP said
He is the only child.
All his parents investment on him was wasted over night!
