Police Arrests Three Brothers For Kidnapping And Killing Of Mother Of Five In Abuja

Three brothers identified as 38-year-old Johnson Emmanuel, 31-year-old Gideon Emmanuel and 27-year-old Success Emmanuel have been arrested by police officers attached to the Intelligence Response Unit of the Nigeria Police Force for the kidnap and gruesome murder of one Mrs Janet Nnenna Ogbonnaya on 14th May, 2020.

We learnt that the suspects who are siblings and natives of Isiekenesi, Ideato LGA of Imo State were arrested by the Police in their home town where they had taken refuge after committing the crime in Abuja in order to evade police arrest.

According to report, the suspects were arrested following a complaint received from one Chinedu Ogbonnaya who alleged that his mother, 55-year-old Mrs Janet Nnenna Ogbonnaya, native of Ozuitem in Bende LGA of Abia State had been kidnapped and a 5-Million naira ransom demanded before she could be released.

In the course of interrogation, the suspects confessed that the victim had long been murdered and buried after they were arrested vis a visa comprehensive and painstaking investigation by the police operatives.

It was further learnt that the victim, a widow, who had been a Facebook friend of the principal suspect – Johnson Emmanuel was lured from her home in Gwagwalada to visit the suspect.

The suspect thereafter took advantage of the visit, served her yoghurt laced with drugs and subsequently had her murdered.

The suspect having killed the victim and buried her remains in a septic tank, went ahead to reach out to the family of the victim using her phone and demanded 5-Million naira ransom as pre-condition for her release.

The suspects on Thursday, June 4 led a team of investigators alongside pathologists to a residence at Wumba District, Lokogoma, Abuja where the victim’s decomposing body was exhumed from a septic tank.

The exhumed body has been taken to the University Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada, Abuja for forensic examination.

A Toyota Highlander Jeep belonging to the deceased was also recovered by Police operatives at a mechanic workshop in Apo where it had been repainted into a different colour, vehicle documents fraudulently changed and ownership of the stolen vehicle criminally transferred to one of the masterminds of the crime – Johnson Emmanuel.

Investigations also revealed that the house where the deceased was killed and buried originally belonged to one of the suspects but was hurriedly sold-off to a third party apparently to obliterate evidence.

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP M.A Adamu while commending the operatives for a job well done, reassured that perpetrators of any form of crimes in the country will not go undetected and unpunished.

He, however, enjoined citizens to be more security conscious and report any suspicious activities within their neighbourhood to the nearest police station.
