A native doctor by name Nze Sunday Asika (alias Aboy Ekwensu) and Mr. Uchenna Ibeh were yesterday paraded by the Anambra State Command of the Department of State Security (DSS) at its headquarters in Amawbia, Awka South Local Government Area, for killing one Mr. John Nwosu, a vulcanizer from Ahiazu Mbaise in neighbouring Imo State.

The deceased was said to have been buried in a shallow grave at Nkpologwu in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State.

Asika and Ibeh admitted that they killed the diseased, but disagreed on who masterminded the killing.

According to Asika, though he shot John to death, it was Ibeh that carried the body and buried it. He revealed that Ibeh threatened to eliminate him if he allowed John to go because he had not been giving them money brought by his brother in South Africa, adding that it was the same Ibeh that brought the gun used in killing John.

On his part, Ibeh claimed that he was only working for the native doctor as an electrician, but admitted that he was the person that took security operatives to the place where John was buried.

Speaking to journalists after parading the two suspects, the State Director of DSS, Mr. Alex Okeiyi, told newsmen that the deceased was an intermediary between his brother residing in South Africa and the native doctor whom he (the deceased) approached to prepare a charm that would make it possible for his brother’s business to flourish in South Africa.

Okeiyi said: “Nwosu’s brother had sent him to the native doctor for a charm to make his business in South Africa flourish, but the charm seemed not to be effective as his brother in South Africa was still having problems with his business.

“This forced his brother, John, to demand refund of the N500,000 he said he paid for the charm and this was his mission to the house of the native doctor. There, the native doctor and Ibeh lured him out of the native doctor’s house at about 8pm and murdered him.

“Asika shot him with a gun and they buried him in a sitting position in a shallow grave they prepared earlier.

“Ibeh confessed the native doctor had asked the deceased to stay back for a sacrifice on the fateful night, only for him to shoot him to death and he (Ibeh) buried the victim in an already dug pit and they headed to an unknown destination.

“Thereafter, the native doctor ordered the dismantling of the deceased’s motorcycle and used the parts to repair his faulty CG motorcycle with Registration No. Enugu QP 782 UWH and threw the dismantled motorcycle into a stream to obliterate evidence that would show that the deceased visited the native doctor.”

Okeiyi added that a homicide team from the Anambra State Police Command led by a pathologist exhumed the remains of the deceased in the shallow grave at Nkpologwu in Aguata Local Government Area.

While pointing out that the native doctor has been a terror in his Nkpologwu community, the DSS Director said that available information indicates that he has been providing spiritual protection to high profile criminals in Anambra and other neighbouring states.

The wife of the deceased, Mrs. Ndidi Nwosu, a mother of three, said she was three months pregnant when her husband disappeared.

She noted that when the native doctor was suspected of being responsible for the death of her husband, many people warned her to be careful because the man was very dangerous.

Mrs. Nwosu said that she had been going through hardship since the murder of her husband, adding that it was members of her church, neighbours and relations that had been assisting her and her children.
