I killed my boss for Xmas money – Guard
A security guard, who was recently arrested by the Imo State Police Command for allegedly stabbing his boss to death and stealing his belongings, said he committed the dastardly act because he wanted to celebrate Christmas lavishly.
It was learnt that the guard, David Kwaguru, and two of his friends killed a 25-year-old final year Civil Engineering student of the Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Imo State, Mr. Innocent Ndukwe, at the deceased’s residence at 18 Enuwa Street, Egbu in the Owerri North Local Government Area of the state.
Confessing to the crime, the security guard said that the rationale behind their evil act was that they needed money to celebrate Christmas next month.
He said, “Since oga Ndukwe had the money (because of his wealthy parents) and expensive household electronics, we decided to kill him, put the devices inside his vehicle and drive to Plateau State where we come from.
“We waited and monitored him. And when he went into the toilet, we broke the door open, tied his hands and legs and started stabbing him all over his body. We stabbed him several times in the neck and abdomen so that he would die quickly. After killing him, we drove off in the jeep only to be nabbed by the police at West End Road in Owerri.”
He said, “As a result, the assailants who tried to escape were subsequently apprehended along West-End old Nekede road, Owerri.”
He said that the deceased was found in a pool of blood in a toilet at his residence when policemen arrived.
Lakanu appealed to members of the public to always be careful when choosing the people they employ as security guards, lamenting that most security guards, more often than not, turn against their employers by collaborating with criminals to attack them.
