He said they lured Okunbor to Tenboga area where they ordered him to surrender all that he has to them including his ATM.
“We collected his ATM and under duress, he told us he has N2.5m in his account. So, other members of my gang asked me to keep an eye on him while they go to the bank to withdraw the money. When my colleagues left to collect money from his account through his ATM, he decided to wrestle with me in a bid to escape but I stabbed him and dumped his corpse into the river”.
