It was another victory for the operatives of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) as three suspected killers were successfully nabbed in Abuja over an alleged kidnap and murder of a mother of five.
According to the statement released by the force's public relation officer, DCP Frank Mba and obtained by Legit.ng, the three brothers lured the victim, Janet Nnenna Ogbonnaya, through Facebook and killed her.
He gave their names as Johnson Emmanuel (38), Gideon Emmanuel (31) and Success Emmanuel (27).
Mba said the suspects were apprehended in their hometown by the squad of Intelligence Response Team (IRT) barely a month after the 55-year-old victim, a citizen of Benue state, was lured to death.
He further explained that the force set action on move following a distress complaint by one by the children of the victim, Chinedu Ogbonnaya, alleging that his mother was kidnapped.
The police PRO said the suspects, upon their arrest and interrogation, confessed to killing the victim.
He added that the three suspects also admitted to burying her remains in a septic tank and using her phone to call her family to demand N5 million ransom.
Mba said further investigation led to where the victim’s decomposing body was exhumed from a septic tank.
The victim, a widow, was a Facebook friend of the principal suspect, Johnson Emmanuel, who tempted her to his home in Gwagwalada.
Meanwhile, Police IG, Mohammed Adamu, commended the operatives for a good job and enjoined the general public to be more security conscious.
