Four arrested for allegedly killing Delta businessman, friend



Four suspects have been arrested by the police over the alleged killing of a Sapele based businessman, Dominic Uguru, and his friend, one Jagbo, days after their bodies were found dead in the entrepreneur’s bathroom in Sapele, Delta State.

The incident occurred on the night of Wednesday, November 16th, along NDDC road in Sapele area of the state.

According to Vanguard, the 30-year-old electronics dealer was at home with Jagbo when the four suspects, Bright Osifo, (23), Goodness Obade,(30), Obunwa Kasim,(25), and Ogadinma Francis (27) allegedly broke into his house at about 11pm and demanded the sum of one million naira from him.

A source who claim to be Dominic’s friend and begged not to be mentioned said his late friend had just returned the previous day from Lagos where he had gone to stock his shop when the assailants struck.

He lamented that probably if Dominic had not gone to stocked his shop, he would have given the assailants the one million naira and probably saved his life and that of his friend.

He further said, “Dominic and Ogadinma are from the same community in Ebonyi State and it was Ogadinma who invited the others to town to attack Dominic and his friend that night, and when he could only transfer thirty six thousand naira rather than the one million naira they demanded from him, they killed him and his friend and dragged their bodies to the bathroom.

“They then took his car, his shop keys and fled in the early hours of the morning, two of them later returned to Dominic’s shop along New Ogorode road, that was when some persons who have heard of the businessman’s death raised alarm, while one fled, the other was caught.

“The Dominic’s car was also recovered that day in a compound after Garmon bridge where the residents would later confirm it was Ogadinma that drove the vehicle there” the source said.

Vanguard reported that Ogadinma now led men of the Sapele police station to the other three persons who were arrested on Friday night.

A security source confirmed the arrest, “we have arrested four persons in respect of the death of Dominic and his friend, and we will soon take them to Asaba” the source said.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, Edafe Bright, could not be reached to comment on the incident as he did not pick his calls, text message to his phone was also left unreplied as at the time of filing in this report.
