A house boy has allegedly killed his boss, Dr Obialor Ibe, and his yet-to-be-identified friend in his residence at the Games Village area of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
Abuja-based Dr Ibe, who was a radiologist, was set to leave for the United States when he was murdered along side his friend.
The deceased were reportedly murdered last Wednesday between 8:00a.m and 11:00a.m.
Amid two accounts to the murder, one of them believed that Ibe’s house boy masterminded the gruesome killing.
The other account has it that they were murdered by some faceless persons who are now at large.
A certain Anthony Ogbo, on his Facebook page, quoted Ibe’s younger sister, Adanna, as saying his doctor brother was billed to travel to the US with his friend before they were murdered in cold blood.
According to him, the deceased were stabbed several times in the chest and abdomen, adding that Ibe’s new SUV car, luggage and some vital documents were made away with.
“Obi was ready to leave for the airport. His friend came to pick him up. Adanna left for work.
“She later called her brother to wish him a safe journey, but could not reach him.
“After several attempts, she then called the house boy. The house boy said he left Obi at home to go out for an errand. Adanna got worried and went back home.
“On reaching home, the gate was locked from outside with a new padlock. She called the house boy again, who told her where to find the new key.
“She got into the house and found lifeless Obi and his friend in a pool of their blood.
“They both have been stabbed several times in the chest and abdomen.
“His five-month-old car, traveling luggage, plus documents gone,” he lamented.
Meanwhile, a neighbour of Dr Ibe has alleged that the house boy poisoned the deceased before stabbing them to death.
“It is believed that the house boy poisoned the doctor and his friend, hacked them to death, and stole his SUV, cash, and took off.
“I heard that he was arrested at the Nigeria-Niger border,” the neighbour whose name was not disclosed, reasoned.
