Warri Spare Parts Dealer Kills Business Associate to Avoid Payment for Goods
LAGOS AUGUST 26TH (URHOBOTODAY)-Ogbaire, a spare parts dealer in Warri, Delta State, has allegedly murdered his associate, Lawrence Okoh, and buried his body in a shallow grave.
On August 2, Okoh had left his Port Harcourt business outfit to supply generator spare parts to Ogbaire in Warri.
After the supply, he did not return home and the police declared him missing. He had, earlier that day, sent a text message to his wife that he would not make it back to Port Harcourt and that he would pass the night with Ogbaire in Warri.
His wife contacted Ogbaire, who claimed that he knew Okoh very well, but that he had not seen him for over a period of time. The police, however, raided the spare parts market in Warri where the wife was able to identify some of the parts Okoh left with on the fateful day.
The shop owner, where the parts were found, took the police to Ogbaire, the person who supplied them. Ogbaire allegedly confessed to the police that he murdered Okoh and buried him in a shallow grave in an uncompleted building.
Okoh’s decomposing body was later exhumed and released to the family for burial. Ogbaire said he killed Okoh in order not to pay him the money for the spare parts he supplied him. Okoh left behind, a set of twins, which he had last year, 8 years after his marriage.
