The Rivers State Police Command has arrested a shoe dealer identified as Ukachukwu Anthony, who specializes in abducting and killing his suppliers in Igbo-Etche, Etche Local Government Area of Rivers State.
The Commissioner for Police in the state, Joseph Mukan, who led a team of newsmen to the residence of the suspect, said was arrested through intelligence gathering. He said the suspect confessed to killing his victims and dumping their remains in a septic tank inside his compound.
Speaking to newsmen, Anthony who is married with children, said he has so far lured three Togolese and one Nigerian to his compound under the pretext of buying shoes from them. He said once they come into his compound, he kills them, dumps their body in the septic tank, and then takes possession of their goods.
''I will tell them to bring shoes. When they come, I will walk to their back and then strangle them until I confirm they are dead. I will then dump their body inside the septic tank.'' Ukachukwu said
Ukachukwu lives in the compound alone while his wife and children reside in another area.
The police exhumed the bodies of the victims he has killed and deposited in the septic tank.
