Abuchi Wisdom Nwachukwu, 29yrs old was reportedly murdered by his friend and colleague, Moses, 27yrs old after informing him of the money his south african based brother sent to complete his house building project.
Moses upon hearing and confirming the amount on the deceased’s phone, made sure he got his password and pin before luring Abuchi out of the table water company where they worked together and killed him. After killing Abuchi he went on to behead him so that he is unrecognisable and then dumped his body in a bush close to where they worked together.
After carrying out such gruesome act, Moses took the deceased phone to some fraudsters in Auchi who helped him withdraw the sum of N2.2m from the victims account as he was now in possession of his phone and ATM card.
However, Abuchi’s elder brother who had been sending money to Abuchi became furious as to why he couldnt reach the deceased on Phone anymore, he then wrote a petition to the Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed several months after him trying to reach Abuchi on phone proved abortive.
Operatives of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT), headed by Abba Kyari, a Deputy Commissioner of Police, swung into action to unravel the mystery behind Nwachukwu’s disappearance.
It was gathered that weeks into their investigation IRT operatives were able to trace the POS transactions Moses did with Nwachukwu’s ATM cards to Benin, Ore and Auchi parts of Edo State.
Moses was later caught in his hiding place and arrested. Upon interrogation, he led the IRT to the fraudsters who helped him withdraw N6m from the deceased’s account.
However, Moses confessed that ever since he killed Abuchi his ghost has been hunting him.
”I work in a table water company in Abely area of Auchi, and I have been working in that company in the last four years.”
“When Nwachukwu got a job in the factory, I was the person who taught him how to operate the machine, so we became very close friends.”
“While we were working, Nwachukwu told me about his brother who lives in South Africa and how he has been sending money to build his house for him.”
“He showed me the alert for the N13 million his brother had just sent to him, saying that he would be travelling to his village to carry out the project. I felt jealous and I decided to steal the money.”
”Since we were friends, I tricked him and collected his phone password. I went through it and found the PIN for his ATM card.”
“Few days before the day he would be traveling, we worked on the same shift. I lured him outside the company, stabbed him with a knife, and killed him.”
“I dragged his body into the bush, and because I don’t want people to recognize him easily, I cut off his neck and buried it. Then I took his ATM card to some fraudsters. I gave it to one Yusuf and told him that I needed to hack the account.”
”We withdrew N2.2 million from the account. I had trouble with Yusuf because he and the people he brought in wanted to cheat me.”
“I killed him on January 8, 2020, and travelled to Ore and Benin City. I stayed in several hotels and was carrying different women, but Nwachukwu’s spirit started disturbing me.”
“Whenever I want to sleep, the boy’s spirit will appear to me and will be crying. The girls that were with me would run away, saying that I want to use them for money ritual.”
