A shoe dealer has been arrested for killing 4 of his suppliers in Igbo-Etche, Etche Local Government Area of Rivers State in Nigeria.
According to the Commissioner for Police in the state, Joseph Mukan, who led a team of newsmen to the residence of the suspect, said his outfit got a tip-off, and policemen were dispatched to the suspect’s place.
Joseph explained that upon arresting the suspect who has been identified as Ukachukwu Anthony, he confessed to killing his victims and dumping their remains in a septic tank inside his compound.
The suspect Anthony who is married with children revealed he has so far lured three Togolese and one Nigerian to his compound under the pretext of buying shoes from them.
He said once they come into his compound, he kills them, dumps their body in the septic tank, and then takes possession of their goods.
”I will tell them to bring shoes. When they come, I will walk to their back and then strangle them until I confirm they are dead. I will then dump their body inside the septic tank.” he said.
Reports say the suspect lives in the compound alone while his wife and children reside in another area.
The police managed to exhume the bodies of the victims he has killed and deposited in the septic tank.
Police say he will soon be put before the court.
