19-Year-Old Boy Arrested After Paying Assassins N5K To Kill His Boss

A 19-year old Benue State-
born Samuel Jonah was
arrested and charged before
a Lagos court sitting in Ejigbo
for engaging some people
suspected to be assassins with the sum of N5000 to kill
his boss, Donatus Nnaji. The incident happened at
Ikotun Area of Lagos where
Nnaji runs a bakery.
Jonah allegedly offered the
men a sum N5,000 but paid
N2,000 cash with promise to pay the balance on
completion of eliminating
Nnaji. P.M.News gathered that Jonah
was brought from his home
town in Benue and got
engaged in the
bakery by Nnaji. It was learnt that the bread
factory was considerably
making progress and Jonah
reportedly started scheming
on how to take over the
business. According to the police, he
reportedly attempted to
commit felony and engaged
the service of assassins to rob
and kill Nnaji with intent of
taking over the business since Nnaji's family did not know
much about the bread
industry. However, the matter was
foiled after he had
disagreement over money
with the boys he engaged. The gang demanded the full
payment and when Jonah was
not forthcoming, one of the
men leaked the information
to Nnaji who contacted police
and Jonah was arrested. At the station, one of the men
who stood as witnesses came
with a recorded video and
Jonah eventually confessed
and said he did not mean to
kill Nnaji. He was brought before
Magistrate's court and
charged with felony under the
Criminal Code and he pleaded
not guilty. The presiding Magistrate, Mr
Akeem Fashola granted Jonah
bail in the sum of N50,000
with one surety in like sum. He was remanded in prison
custody pending when he will
perfect his bail condition.
The matter was adjourned till
8 March 2017
