After purportedly making N50 million in Delta State, a suspected online fraudster, simply called as Clinton, was stabbed to death by his buddies.
The dead died shortly after celebrating his mother’s birthday at Ovie Palace Road in the Uvwie Local Government Area in early August.
When the bank alerted him around 3 a.m. on Friday, he was in Hong Kong with his friends, in a building that houses many internet fraudsters. After screams of jubilation, he was stabbed to death.
While attempting to deliver Clinton’s body to his mother, his perpetrators were confronted by vigilantes. After bribing the vigilantes, they were allowed to pass.
The assailants were successful in bringing and giving over the deceased’s body to his mother, Onome, who took him to the Central Hospital in Ekpan, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
His killers called his mother shortly after the corpse was buried to notify her that they were on their way to Sokoto State to get funds to arrange a proper funeral for him.
The Baptist Church in Okuokoko Community, where the deceased was a member of the Royal Ambassador, has been in sorrow since the occurrence.
CP Ari Mohammed Ali, the commander of the Delta State Police Command, has yet to comment on the matter.
