A soldier and other suspects have been arrested over the kidnap and murder of Leo Micah Isiah, a 22-year-old student of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, after collecting the N800,000 in his account.
One of the members of the gang, named Godson Chimezie, led SARS officers to the place where the body of Leo was dumped in Anambra State after he was kidnapped in Imo State.
He said they had stopped him when they saw him with his car and they accused him of being a Yahoo boy.
They then led him away with his car and took his money before killing him.
The others involved in the killing have now been caught and they said they killed the undergraduate after taking the money in his account so that “our image will not be dented.”
One of the suspects, Ifeanyi Nwaiwu of the Nigerian Army School of Military Engineering, Makurdi, Benue State, said he ordered Isiah’s killing after he received N200,000 as his share of the money collected from the victim.
Godson Chimezie, 28, who is a military deserter and also a member of the gang, said they ran into Isaiah while he was inflating his car tyre and sensed that a small boy like that riding that kind of vehicle must be a yahoo boy.
