Vanguard gathered that nemesis, however, caught up with the gang while they went to collect another N300, 000 which they ordered the wife of the deceased to pay even when the husband had been killed.

“From what we gathered, the suspects trailed him using a commercial tricycle. They drove into his compound immediately after he (deceased) was about to drive into his compound. They ordered him back to his jeep and drove away immediately through the Ngwa road axis.

“Immediately the information got to the police, we swung into action and followed the wife without her even knowing. It was while she was going to drop the second round of ransom of about N300, 000, after she had paid them N700, 000 that we nabbed them. We arrested them and they took us to their camp in a forest at Ntighauzo in Obingwa LGA where they dumped the man’s body.”

Vanguard gathered that the kidnappers confessed during interrogation that Daniel was killed by a member of the gang who was asked to guard him while they had gone to collect the initial N700, 000 ransom.
