84 year old Chief Abbot Ogbobula was abducted by a six-man gang of kidnappers on June 26, from his home at Ihuba village in Ahoada, Rivers State.
According to SUN, the abductors demanded a ransom of N20 million from the family.
The relatives first sent the sum of N200,000 to the kidnappers and later sent additional N500,000 to the gang.
In a horrific twist of fate, a young member of the extended family, Udoma Njoku, sent to deliver the money was abducted and beheaded by the gang.
Probably dissatisfied with the amount they got when compared with the ransom demanded, the gang murdered the octogenarian and buried him in a shallow grave in Degema creek, Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Through good detective work, the members of the gang were arrested on September 17.
They are, Boma Thompson, 25, Chief Emenike Mathias, 47, Goodnews Nwoka, 33, Daniel ThankGod, 27, and Franklin Dokubo.
The police commissioner explained that one of the arrested suspects, Chief Emenike Mathias, allegedly arranged the abduction of the octogenarian because of chieftaincy issue in the community.
One of them, Daniel ThankGod, took the police to the place where the octogenarian was buried at Degema creek.
The decomposing body was exhumed and deposited at University of Port Harcourt Mortuary.
