Inspector Kingsley Ogbantu, the father of Destiny Ogbantu, who allegedly killed 23-year-old Onyebuchi Ernest Emeka, has been arrested and detained.
Inspector Ogbantu was “arrested as proxy for his son’s action” and is currently in police custody.
The son, Destiny Ogbantu, a student of Madonna University, got into an argument on Friday September 22 with 23-year-old Onyebuchi Ernest Emeka, who was a Computer Science Student of Oghara Polytechnic.
The fight took place near Block D, Police Barracks, Opposite “A” division, Warri, Delta State.
During the fight, the suspect ran upstairs to the “D” block apartment and allegedly returned with a knife and a dagger with which he stabbed Onyebuchi Ernest Emeka.
The victim was rushed to the hospital by his family but he didn’t survive.
The tragedy has thrown his family into mourning, especially his mother who is inconsolable.
Following Onyebuchi’s death, the mother of the suspected murderer “instantly rushed back to their apartment inside the barracks, packed all her children, including the suspect, and absconded from the barracks.”
Their whereabouts are still unknown.
