A leader of Tiv Community in Opeji, Ogun State identified as Jonathan Tsekar, has been arrested for killing a police corporal, Gbenga Adeboyejo over N120,000, and burying him in a shallow grave.
It was gathered that the suspect and the victim were engaged in a charcoal business before the relationship turned sour.
The Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Illiyasu, yesterday led his men to exhume the corpse of the victim buried by the suspect in a shallow grave at Opeji village.
Illiyasu disclosed that the suspect allegedly committed the murder on November 24, 2018.
The CP quoted the community leader to have confessed that he killed the police corporal by “hitting a heavy plank on his head” in order not to refund the N120,000 he collected from the deceased.
