Abia vigilante arrested in Port Harcourt for allegedly killing US-based bizman

The Rivers State Police Command has arrested a vigilante, Okorie Chukwuma, for allegedly killing his boss, Eyinaya Ogbonna, a businessman based in the United States of America.

PUNCH Metro gathered that the suspect, after committing the crime in Abia State, fled to Port Harcourt, Rivers State, where he sold off the deceased’s car.
Punch correspondent learnt that Ogbonna recently returned to Nigeria and started a gas station in Abia State.

He was said to have employed the suspect to supervise the facility.
The Rivers State Police Public Relations Officer, Nnamdi Omoni, while parading the suspect, said the late Ogbonna hired him through the Abia State Vigilante Service.
 The police spokesman said the suspect, however, connived with another vigilante to take the life of the businessman after a disagreement.

He said, “This young man you have interviewed 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.
“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.”
Chukwuma, in an interview with our correspondent, confessed to the crime.

He said, “I am a member of the Abia State Vigilante Service. I am here because I killed my boss. I came to Port Harcourt to sell his vehicle and escape with the money. Unfortunately, the police caught me.
