A Mechanical Engineering student of the Auchi Polytechnic, Edo State, has been arrested alongside four other teenagers for kidnapping and killing, Okunbor Oghogho 46-year-old.

Sun News reports that the incident happened on the night of November 21st, 2019. The suspects were however arrested across different towns in Edo and Anambra states from November 26th to December 5th, following a report filed by the wife of the deceased.

The five suspects are identified as listed below; Chinedu Amah 19-years-old, Chinonso Ozuora 18-years-old, Moses Joseph 19-years-old, Onyechika Emmanuel 18-years-old and Marvelous 20-years-old.

The alleged ring leader of the gang is Joseph from Okene, Kogi State, but lived and worked as a driver in Benin City.

According to his confession, the gang of five, which had operated as armed robbers-cum-kidnappers, abducted the late Okunbor Oghogho at about 9 pm on November 21st at Iyaro Road.

He said:-
We deliberately hit his car (which is the method we used to kidnap victim) knowing that he would come down to check the extent of the damage on his car.

Immediately he came out of his car, we grabbed him and threw him into the back seat and I took charge of the car. We relieved him of his phones and the N5,000 cash in his pocket.

We took his ATM card and drove him to an ATM stand at Sakponba Road, where we withdrew N215, 000 and confirmed the balance of N1.6million in his account.

Thereafter, we took him to Ikpoba River at Upper Mission Extension. Because he was struggling and arguing with us, I had to stab him severally at the back. We threw his body inside the river.

I took his car, a Toyota Camry Saloon car (with identity plate number. AGB26MN) to the house of one of our members, Marvelous, I gave him N2,000 and his share of N54, 000.

Onyechika who was found using the victim’s phone and Chinedu, who claimed he was studying Mechanical Engineering at Auchi Polytechnic, both corroborated the story, admitting they each received a share of N54, 000.
