The police said the suspect, who hails from Imo State was arrested in Abuja while trying to sell a car belonging to the deceased.

“Swiftly, police detectives were deployed to the scene where they met the victim brutally stabbed on his ribs and a cut on his neck.

“The victim was rushed to Bishop Murray Hospital where he was confirmed dead and was deposited at the morgue.

“During the investigation, one Jeremiah Nnamdi of Umigwe village, Imo State, a student of the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi was arrested in Abuja where he went to sell the car of the deceased.”

According to the police, the suspect has already confessed to the crime, and further investigation is ongoing.

“The suspect confessed to the crime and further stated that his initial intention was to threaten the victim with a make-believe gun and rob the deceased of his car.

“But he ended up killing him because of his resistance and took the car away,” the police added.
