A 21-year-old young man, identified as Micah Isaiah but also known as Leo Wire has reportedly been k i l l e d by his friend —an ex-militant— out of jealously.
According to reports surrounding Isaiah’s death, he was k i l l e d on May 12th around Willow Wood hotel in Owerri, Imo state’s capital.
Isaiah was reported to be close friends with his k i l l e r a supposed ex-militant— who hired some men to k i d n a p Isaiah after Isaiah acquired a Lexus SUV.
It’s reported that Isaiah’s friend became jealous after he bought his new car. This prompted him to kidnap Isaiah with the aid of other men who disguised themselves in military uniforms.
They forced him into “unidentified cars without plate numbers” and drove him along with his car to Anambra, where they held him hostage and demanded N4million as ransom.
Isaiah’s a b d u c t o r s contacted his younger brother to pay the r a n s o m e but he couldn’t afford it as he had just b u r i e d their mother — a b u r i a l Leo didn’t attend because he had been a b d u c t e d
When the men didn’t receive the r a n s o m, they emptied Leo’s account and then k i l l e d him.
It’s reported that one of the suspects was caught while making plans to sell Isaiah’s Lexus-350 SUV. With this, they informed the SARS division in Owerri, who took action and tracked his phone, his car, and the bank account the money was transferred into.
One of the suspects was nabbed in the process who then took the SARS operatives to the bush where Leo’s b o d y was dumped.
The kidnappers —Isaiah’s friend— who had on a Nigerian military sweater, confessed to the crime and revealed he was once a soldier and was dismissed in 2018. He then went on to name his accomplices, one of whom he says is also a soldier.
He confessed that they accused Isaiah of being a fraudster before they apprehnded him.
He added that he and his accomplices used a huge stone to k i l l Leo and thereafter poured a substance on him.
