Some criminals who killed Mr Osita Duruoha have confessed.
The suspected killers of Duruoha, an official of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Anambra State, have confessed why they strangled the man to death.
The suspects, Nwobodo Samuel Obumneme, 26, and Malachi Chinedu Uzorchukwu, 28, said yesterday that they killed Duruoha with the aim of taking away his shuttle bus.
Duruoha was declared missing in September 2022 but his body was later found by the roadside, in Isuaniocha community in Awka North Local Government Area of the state.
Uzorchukwu said they pretended to hire the deceased for a trip.
He said, “Around 8pm, we stopped the deceased to carry us to Isuaniocha to go pick up our working tools. On approaching a narrow road at Isuaniocha, I put the rope on his neck and struggled with him. Obum assisted in tying his hands and legs until we got to the bush where we dumped the body.”
Police said the suspects have since confessed to the crime and would soon be charged.
