Police arrest Man for plotting in-law’s kidnap, murder in Imo

Operatives of the Imo State Police Command have arrested Chima Ononiwu a 32-year-old  man from Umuola Umunakanu-Ama in the Ehime Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State, for allegedly plotting to murder his uncle’s wife, Kelechi Lazz.

The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Dasuki Galandanchi, told newsmen in Owerri that the suspect had engaged a kidnap kingpin to abduct Kelechi.

The police boss said luck ran out on the suspect, when policemen, through diligent investigation, arrested him.

The suspect confessed to have contracted a house builder for his uncle, Dr. Lazz Ononiwu, to get a kidnap gang to abduct and murder his wife, Kelechi Lazz.

“He immediately left for Lagos State, where he is residing and was coordinating the crime from there. On June 23, after a series of discussions by the suspect with the supposed kidnap kingpin, he was lured to come down to Owerri for final arrangement and oath taking.

“The suspect came and met with the supposed kidnap kingpin in a hotel room in Owerri. He used his hair for pledging and reduced the oath into writing with a red pen, stating that the woman should be kidnapped and murdered after collecting N5m as ransom.”

Galandanchi said the suspect agreed with the kidnap kingpin that out of the N5m that would be collected as ransom, he would be given N2m.

The Police said the suspect would be charged to court for the crime.
