Community Leader Kills Police Officer He Was Owing N120,000 To Avoid Paying Back 5

A community leader who brutally murdered a police officer he was owing N120,000, to avoid paying him back has been arrested.

According to Daily Trust, the Ogun State Police Command has arrested a Tiv community leader in Opeji, Odeda Local Government Area of Ogun state, Jonathan Tsekar, allegedly killing a police corporal, Gbenga Adeboyejo.

It was gathered that the suspect, Tsekar and the victim, Adeboyejo, who was attached to Odeda Divisional Police, did a charcoal business together before the developed bad blood for each other.

Tsekar was not willing to pay back the sum of N120,000 he was owing Adeboyejo, so he decided to kill him.

Adeboyejo was reported missing by his father on December 1st. Investigations by the police led to the arrest of Tsekar who confessed that on November 24th, he invited the deceased to an isolated area where he used a plank to hit him on the head, ensuring he died so he would not refund the money he collected from him. He later buried the victim in a shallow grave at Opeji village.

Speaking to newsmen, the suspect said he had no intention to kill Adeboyejo

“He (deceased) complained that his goods arrived late and we started arguing. He struck me with wood and I also struck him with the wood. I didn’t intend to kill him.  When I realised he was dead, I dug a grave to bury him.”

The Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Illiyasu, yesterday led his men to exhume the corpse of the victim allegedly buried by the suspect in a shallow grave at Opeji village.
