A Lokoja based popular businessman and owner of Chuks Supermarket, Nicholas Offodile who was shot dead a few weeks ago along Abuja-Lokoja road was killed by persons engaged by his apprentice.
One of the killers, Vincent Omogor who was arrested by the Security operatives confessed to committing the crime alongside other criminals.
Kogi State Commissioner of Police, Ede Ayuba disclosed this in Lokoja while parading 28 criminal suspects at the Police command in Lokoja.
Vincent Omogor said the apprentice who contracted them said he was angry with Chief Offodile for refusing to give him money to treat his sick father who later died.
“He now gave us his travel itinerary which made it easier for us to kill him on Abuja road,” he said, as the police commissioner said security operatives are on the trail of other fleeing assassins, assuring that the long arm of the law would get them.
