Money is indeed the root of all evil. Money can motivate a man to do and undo..so many people are driven by this desire to make money everyday they are blinded to the negative actions they end up taking and how it affects people around them or how it might affect them in the future.
My father always told me something while I was growing up, he said look at this categories of people , colleague, associate , friend .. never confuse them for one another, .
I would be telling you the tragic story of Abuchi Wisdom Nwachuckwu , a man who confused his work colleague as his friend.. it didn't end so well for him.
This is no Fiction but a real life story which I would love everyone reading this article to learn from. Always be mindful of who you tell your secrets too, it pays more to listen than to speak..
Let me summarize what went down . It so happened that wisdom was working in a factory here in Nigeria where he met Moses . The two of them got along well. Wisdom had a brother in South Africa who sent him the sum of 13 million naira to be used in building a house for him(wisdom's elder brother).
Wisdom who taught he knew Moses well enough to trust him told Moses of the money transfer and even showed him his account balance of 13 million.
Well, that singular act of Wisdom was what ended his life, his friend Moses planned his death and devised a means to get the money.
Moses got the money , he travelled to ore, benin and began partying and carrying different woman, Everything was exposed to limelight when Wisdom's brother wrote a petition to the Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, to look into the matter of his brother’s disappearance.
Moses was later apprehended by the police from where he was hiding.
See what Moses had to say......
“When Nwachukwu got a job in the factory, I was the person who taught him how to operate the machine, so we became very close friends.
“While we were working, Nwachukwu told me about his brother who lives in South Africa and how he has been sending money to build his house for him.
“He showed me the alert for the N13 million his brother had just sent to him, saying that he would be travelling to his village to carry out the project. I felt jealous and I decided to steal the money.
“Since we were friends, I tricked him and collected his phone password. I went through it and found the PIN for his ATM card.
“Few days before the day he would be travelling, we worked on the same shift. I lured him outside the company, stabbed him with a knife and killed him.
“I dragged his body into the bush, and because I don’t want people to recognise him easily, I cut off his neck and buried it. Then I took his ATM card to some fraudsters. I gave it to one Yusuf and told him that I needed to hack the account.
“We withdrew N2.2 million from the account. I had trouble with Yusuf because he and the people he brought in wanted to cheat me.
“I killed him on January 8, 2020 and travelled to Ore and Benin City. I stayed in several hotels and was carrying different women, but Nwachukwu’s spirit started disturbing me.
“Whenever I want to sleep, the boy’s spirit will appear to me and will be crying. The girls that were with me would run away, saying that I want to use them for money ritual.”
