Egbomrewen, 31, who is one of the criminals said, “Around 9:30p.m, we called the Uber driver to come pick us at Tantalizer eatery at Ogba, I and Destiny were inside the vehicle with the driver, but Michael was outside.”
I was holding the belt, immediately I put the belt across the driver’s neck, Destiny dragged the belt and we strangled him. We took his corpse to Oremeji Street and dumped him in front of a church around 10:30pm.
We took the vehicle to Michael’s boss to sell the vehicle and he enquired on how we got it but when we told him that we killed the owner, he said we should take the car away.
Michael said we should take it (the vehicle) to his house and park it outside before taking it to another buyer in Benin, where we were tracked to and arrested.”
