Teenage houseboy kills boss, arrested while trying to sell his car

Edo State Police Command has arrested a 17-year-old houseboy, Chukwuebuka Nwode for allegedly killing his boss, Peter Onoberhie.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Kontongs Bello, in the state made this known on Friday while parading the boy and ten other suspects for various crimes.

According to the police, the suspect was working at a sachet water production factory owned by the deceased when he allegedly carried out the act. He was later arrested with two accomplices while trying to sell his boss’ car at Uwelu Motor Spare Parts Market, Benin City.

Narrating his story, the suspect said he used a kitchen knife to kill his boss while the deceased was watching television at midnight in his sitting room.

“I didn’t just know what came over me to kill him. I have been living with my mother in Ondo State for the past 16 years. So, when I turned 17, I decided to leave for Benin City.

“When I got to Benin, I first picked up a job in a bakery. After I got the bakery job, I travelled to my village but when I returned from the village, my boss said my services were no more needed.
