AWKA: 30-year-old Angus Chukwuebuka Nwankwo, a native of Nanka in Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra State, who was arrested by operatives of the Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS, in the state, over alleged murder of his Facebook friend, Willswaggs, from Imo State, said he killed his friend because of refusal of the friend to pay him N20,000.

Nwankwo, who said he had been chatting with his Facebook friend, Willswaggs, for over one year, told Daily Sun in an exclusive chat that his Facebook friend failed to pay him N20,000, which said he would pay after after making love to him.

According to Nwankwo: "Sometimes in February this year, Willswaggs asked me me to come to Owerri to spend time with him. He said I was a fine boy, and that he would like to make love to me. I reminded him that he was a boy, and would not make love to a fellow; but he insisted. Then, he promised that he would give me N20,000 if I should make love to him. 

"I told him I would not come to Owerri. I told him that I would make love to him and collect the N20,000 if he would come to my village, Nanka. He accepted to come.

"That fateful day, I  told my younger brother about my visitor and what we planned to do. I told him that once he saw us move inside the room, he should bang into the room. 

"So, when I went inside with my Facebook friend,  my brother banged inside the room after 10 minutes. When my visitor realised that I planned with my brother to disrupt the love making, he said he would not pay me the N20,000 unless we did what he came for. That led to quarrel and fight. 

"In the course of the fight, he hit me with stick. I hit him back and he fell down. When I realised that he was dead, I dumped his body at a bush part. I later reported myself to a local vigilante group in our community, who handed me over to operatives of the Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS."

He further disclosed that he later led SARS personnel to the bush where he dumped the already decomposing body of his victim.
