The killer, Ifeanyi Ezinwa Paul, 29, told the police that he killed his 19 years old kinsman, Victor Ebuka, in order to avoid paying the N100, 000 (₵1,400)he borrowed from him. Paul had lured Ebuka into a bush in Umuleri, Anambra State, and strangled him to death.

According to him: “Two years ago, my kinsmen invited me to come and work for the community. My duty was to serve as a revenue collector for the elderly men in the community. We have market days and everyone was expected to drop a certain amount of money.

It was going well, but I became greedy and spent part of the money I had collected on behalf of the community.

I knew I would lose my job if anyone noticed the shortage. It was out of desperation that I approached Ebuka, who owns a provision store in our village. He was my relative.

I borrowed N100, 000 from him, with a promise to refund by January 2021, but couldn’t meet up. Following threats by the decease to report me to the king, I decided to kill him. I cannot explain the devil that entered my head.

My family and kindred should all forgive me. What happened was the handiwork of the devil.”
