A teenage robbery and murder suspect, Mighty Omini, opened up on how he was promised N500,000 to drive away the car of a woman, who was raped and murdered in Calabar, Cross River State a week ago.
Speaking on Tuesday in Calabar while being paraded alongside his suspected accomplice, Godwin Nyenine, as well as 28 other suspects arrested for various offences such as rape, drug peddling, cultism and child trafficking, Omini said, “I was not involved in the killing of the woman. I was only invited to come and drive the car, which was parked over there. I was not aware that the woman was killed. Even when the police arrested me and I took them to the woman’s house, I wasn’t aware that the woman was dead. I was not involved in the operation.
“The leader of the gang, Udobong, said there was a car I would drive out of his compound and he would pay me N500,000.
“We are just getting aware that the woman is dead. I feel very bad. If I knew that someone’s life would be involved, I wouldn’t have done it, because I have a younger one and a mother, who is young.”
The state Commissioner of Police, Sikiru Akande, who paraded the suspects, said Omini and his gang stole some valuables and an unregistered Nissan Sentra belonging to Doris after killing her. ,,
An SUV and a Mercedes Benz car were also recovered from the other suspects.
