The Edo State Police command on Wednesday arrested a medical doctor, Dr. Abass Adebowale, for allegedly injecting a cab driver identified as Emmanuel Agbovinuere, to death in Benin City.

The 36-year-old doctor allegedly dumped Agbovinuere’s corpse in a bush, after committing the crime, and stole the victim’s Toyota Voltron car.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, Chidi Nwabuzor, who paraded the suspect before newsmen at the police command headquarters in Benin disclosed that “the 39-year-old cab driver met with the suspect in July this year, at an undisclosed hotel in Benin and that is where their relationship started. On Sunday, September 4, the suspect came from Kwara State and they met at the same hotel, where he drive him round the City whenever he visits to do business.

“The cab man complained of leg pain and the doctor promised to help and injected some poisonous drugs in his system. That was what killed him instantly. For him to conceal the crime, he left the corpse in the man’s Toyota Voltron car, but later took the corpse to Ondo Road, Oluku, Edo State, and dumped the corpse there.

“When the Anti-Kidnapping Unit got notice of what happened, they mobilised and he was arrested in Osogbo, Osun State, with the deceased car.”

The suspect during the parade said the driver’s death was not deliberate, adding, “I pray that the family find a place in their hearts to forgive me.”

SP Nwanbuzor said a snippet, diaxipan injection, scalp vein middle and five syringe were recovered from the suspect.
