17-year-old boy stabs boss to death, arrested while trying to sell his Lexus car

A-17-year-old boy, Chukwuebuka Nwode was paraded on Friday by security operatives in Edo State for stabbing his master and employer, Onoberhie Peter to death with a kitchen knife in Benin City.

The police, while parading the suspect alongside 10 others, said Chukwuebuka lived with his master who owned a pure water factory in Benin.

According to the State Police Public Relations Officer, Bello Kontong, the suspect was employed by his deceased boss to help with offloading of the packaged sachet water, but eventually killed the man.

The PPRO said the suspect was apprehended when he went to sell his boss car, a Lexus 330 SUV, after Killing him.

Said Kontong: “They conspired among themselves to kill one of their bosses who they were working for, steal his Lexus 330 and when the police were informed, the three of them were arrested at the point of selling the valuable.”

While admitting to the crime, Chukwuebuka, who has barely spent six months in Benin, said he did not know what came over him.

“He said I would work for him for one month before he would employ me as his staff. I have only spent one month with him. I didn’t just know what came over me that made me kill him. I have been living with my mother in Ondo State when I was 16 years. So, when I turned 17, I decided to leave her for Benin City.

“When I got to Benin, I first picked up a job in a bakery. After getting the bakery job, I travelled to my village but when I came back from the village, my boss said my services were no more needed. It was after that incident that I met Mr Peter. I didn’t know what came over me. I killed him with a kitchen knife when he was watching television in his sitting room,” he said.

Chukwuebuka said he singlehandedly killed his boss and that after he killed him, he went to invite his friends, Oginika Okafor and Celestine Ukane to help him drive the car to Uwelu where they planned to sell the vehicle before the police nabbed the suspects.
