Staff of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Ikon Danasabe, has been arrested for killing his colleague, Francis Atache who refused to refund his N70k.
According to Vanguard News, the deceased was found in a bush in Makurdi, Benue State, in August 2020, days after having a feud with the suspect over N70k given to him to pay for a monthly contribution. Danasabe was arrested but denied being responsible and was remanded until Atache’s relatives wrote a petition to the IGP.
An investigation was conducted and it was gathered that Danasabe was a member of dreaded Aye Confraternity and he had invited his cult members to help him kill Atache when he refused to pay him the said sum.
It was learned that when the IRT operatives verified this information and discovered its authenticity, they visited the Makurdi Correctional detention, brought out Danasabe and reinterrogated him with those facts and he later confessed masterminding the killing of Atache, adding that he had no other option.
