The suspected murderer arrested by the Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Ondo State, said that he would die if he disclose his sponsors.
25-year-old suspect identified as Destiny Agbaijoh, was arrested on 20th of July, along Ore-Okitipupa road with one AK-47, 91 bullets of 5.56 mm, one pump action, 16 cartridges and N347,000 cash.
Destiny revealed to newsmen that he was a timber trader, saying, “l will die if I confess my mission and those who sent me.
He gave reason why he decided not to take the bag to police “l never knew it would later bring problem for me. I saw it in a bush in the place I am working. I saw it in a nylon bag they used to wrap it and I carried it to my village.
“I don’t know it will later cause problem. I was coming from Bayelsa State and was going to my home town after Agadagba, in Ese-Odo council area of Ondo State. The money is my own and it was from my timber business.”
Parading the suspect, the state Commandant of the NDLEA, Mr Kayode Raji, said the suspect was arrested during a stop and search operation along Ore-Okitipupa road.
Mr Raji said that the suspect attempted to bribe his men on duty with the cash found on him, which his men rejected and took him into custody.”
