I Lured Him To The Bush That I Want To Pay His 100k Debt And Strangled Him To Death–Suspect

The murder suspect identified as Ifeanyi Ezinwa has been arrested by the police in Anambra state after he allegedly murdered his cousin identified as Chukwuebuka Iloegbunam over a debt of 100k.

According to reports made available by instablog, Ezinwa was said to have killed chukwuebuka after he kept requesting the repayment of the money that Ezinwa borrowed from him which was due for payment.

Chukwuemebuka had help Ezinwa with the loan of 100k last year December which he used to balance mismanagement of fund and promised to pay on the 10th of January, but he was unable to meet up. Meanwhile, Chukwuemebuka kept demanding his money.

So in a bid to silence the 19-year-old, Ezinwa lured him to a Bush at Aguleri junction on 15th of January 2021 around 8.30 pm and strangled him to death, then went back to the village and make false alert that both of them were attacked and Chukwuebuka got killed in the process.

But he was however arrested later and reportedly taken to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Awka where he made a full confession.

The 29-year-old confessed that he scheduled a meeting to pay up the 100k dept with Chukwuemebuka at a Bush part around 8 pm and when Chukwuemebuka arrived, Ezinwa attempted to stab him with a knife he had hidden in a loaf of bread.

Unfortunately for Ezinwa, Chukwuemebuka was able to retrieve the knife and stabbed him, but Ezinwa later managed to overpower Chukwuemebuka and strangle him to death.

Ezinwa is however currently in police custody and blamed the devil for possessing him when he carried out the dastardly act.
