A 39-year old housewife, Mrs. Nkechi Agbor, has been arrested by detectives attached to Area C Police Command, Lekki, Lagos for allegedly hiring assassins to eliminate her millionaire husband, Godstime, in order to inherit his property.

The suspect, Festus, was arrested while trying to break into Mr. Godstime Agbor’s apartment at Badore Estate to not only kill him but also to steal from the house before he was caught in the act.

“I involved a friend of mine, Mike, and we both went there and hid inside a tricycle waiting for Mr. Godstime, who we were told always opens the gate himself whenever he gets back from work. But on that day, it was his daughter that opened the gate. We went back the next day, it was still his daughter that opened the gate again.”
“On the third day, it was Mr. Godstime that opened the gate and the plan was to rush to stab him in the neck, heart side of the chest and rib.
Mike, who was supposed to kill him, went to urinate and by the time he got back, Mr. Godstime had gone inside and shut the gate. So, out of frustration we went back home.”
“Thereafter, I decided to go to Mr. Godstime’s house alone to steal instead. As i jumped into his compound through the fence, somebody raised alarm which attracted members of a vigilante group in the area, who apprehended me.”
“I regret my actions and i hope i will be given a second chance” he said.
Mrs. Nkechi has reportedly confessed to sending hired assassin to eliminate her husband and her reason was to inherit her husband’s properties.
Police sources said that Nkechi and the other suspects will be charged to Court after the conclusion of investigations.
