The suspected killers of Chief Ignatius Odunukwe, a popular Anambra billionaire and owner of Fireman Generator who was kidnapped and gruesomely murdered, has taken the police to the place his body was dumped.
IG Obiodunukwe, as he was popularly called, was missing for weeks, having been kidnapped last December. His decomposing body was found on Thursday, January 16, 2020, after his kidnappers were caught and they led police to the location where they dumped the body.
His decaying, dismembered body was found in a sack in a forest in Lagos. His remains were later taken to Havana hospital, Surulere.
How he was killed:
After negotiations, both parties agreed on a price and the agreement was drafted by IG Odunukwe’s lawyers. His lawyers suggested going with him to sign the papers but he declined, explaining that he also had to stop by at Ikoyi club before meeting the land buyers.
When he didn’t return home, his family started looking for him. His vehicle was found in the premises of the hotel where he agreed to meet with the buyers but the hotel management said he didn’t enter inside the hotel building and their CCTV covers only the inside of the hotel.
They succeeded in arresting one of the culprits but he denied knowledge of the incident. When the police went to his house, they found IG Odunukwe’s property documents which had been signed. The man insisted that he already concluded the business deal with Chief Odunukwe and paid for the property.
He was detained and interrogated and two other suspects were arrested. They confessed that they picked IG Odunukwe and forced him to sign the documents, after which they killed him.
The suspects who identified themselves as Arinze, Solomon, Cletus and Daniel Ibeaju took the police to the forest where they dumped the body in Ajah and they took turns to confirm that the body in the bag belongs to the missing businessman.
