Gunmen, believed to be kidnappers, have killed the husband of a policewoman serving with the Nigeria Police Force in the Delta State Command.

The kidnappers later dumped the remains of the deceased, a lawyer at a bush path in Ubulu-Ukwu community.

It was learnt that the body had decomposed when it was discovered by the Police.

DAILY POST gathered that the deceased, Barr. Kennedy Nwashebi, was kidnapped in Asaba and taken to Ubulu-Ukwu. He forced to call his relatives for ransom by the kidnappers and he complied.

But the kidnappers killed him after reportedly collecting an undisclosed amount of money as ransom from his relatives suspecting that he may have called the police to come to his rescue.

When contacted, the Delta State Commissioner of Police, CP Adeyinka Adeleke confirmed the report, but he didn’t disclose if anyone has been arrested in connection with the kidnap and murder of the lawyer.

CP Adeleke said, “It is true he was kidnapped and killed. The Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, are aware of the matter and we are working together to bring the culprits to justice. Already, the police have launched a manhunt for the arrests of the suspects and we will let the public know of the outcome of our investigation.”

It would be recalled that in 2016, the immediate past King of Ubulu-Ukwu Kingdom, HRM Obi Edward Akaeze Ofulue III, was kidnapped and murdered by kidnappers.

After the murder of the monarch, some suspects were arrested and charged to court and subsequently sentenced to jail.
