By MIKE OSAROGIAGBON
BENIN CITY ––The Managing Director (MD) of “God is Good Motors” reportedly abducted last Sunday morning in Benin City has been found dead in Ekiadolor village, near Benin.
The multi-millionaire transporter whose corpse was recovered yesterday morning by men of Ekiadolor Police Station, The NIGERIAN OBSERVER reliably gathered, was tortured to death as his legs, hands and neck were tied together.
Though the gunmen who had earlier demanded N110 million ransom from his family, it was further learnt, later received N60 million, yet, why they went ahead to murder their victim remained a sad question begging for answer.
When The NIGERIAN OBSERVER visited the transport company’s head office at 202B, Uselu-Lagos road, both the manager and other staff declined comment, saying that they were in a sad mood, as buses were seen packed inside the premises.
While mourning the death of the victim who was described as easy-going, a shop owner stated that the Managing Director (MD) was abducted by assassins and not kidnappers as earlier thought.
While confirming the recovery of the corpse, the Image-Maker of the State Police Command, ASP Peter Ogboi stated that it was a case of assassination and not kidnapping as earlier speculated.
He, however vowed that the police would soon unravel those behind the killing.
Investigation however revealed that what appeared to be internal war exists among big time transporters in the state as over three famous transport magnates have fallen victims.
It will be recalled that about a decade ago, the founder of Big Joe Motors, Mr. Joseph Osayande was also murdered in similar circumstances in Benin City by yet-to-be-identified gunmen.
The NIGERIAN OBSERVER had yesterday reported that the Managing Director (MD) of “God is Good Motors” was abducted by gunmen who struck in front of his church on Sunday morning in Benin City.
