Nigerian Tribune reports how Onowa tried to escape authorities after allegedly butchering his friend and dismembering him. The report notes that police used a “GSM tracking device employed by officers and men of the Force.”

The state Police Commissioner, Gabriel Achong, said the man has confessed to have invited his friend to his house and offered him a drink, saying that around 3 a.m. ‘I decided to kill him.’

“I gave him the first cut, the guy got up; I gave him a second one and he died and I butchered him to parts,” the suspect confessed.

The commissioner detailed that a fight had been carrying on for the past two years between the ‘butcher’ and his victim, even as their case file in the hands of authorities, said the police.

“After stabbing him to death, he used matchet to chop off his hands, head and two legs. He packed the parts in a sack, pulled it out of the house to the major street of Itu Road.”

According to the press reports, “Onowa confessed to the crime and claimed to have killed his victim for daring to raise his voice at him over his N750, 000 he had refused to account for.”

The man carried the corpse to a “safer place,” but he was said to have abandoned the deceased in a bag, removed the vital parts, including his two hands, which he dumped in a place along School Road and the head, which he hid in abandoned dump site on the same Itu Road.

The suspect, who confessed to the crime, said he had called his victim on phone for urgent meeting in his house, where he drugged his Orijin beer.

Neighbors confirmed that the killer “is the fact that the suspect, apart from being a close friend of the deceased, was also having an affair with one of the late Dan’s sisters.”

He disclosed that such close relationship led to the suspect opening a barbing salon for his victim along Urua Ekpa Road.

“…he has refused to pay the money, so when I invited him to my house that day, he started shouting at and getting angry with me, so I killed him. I am not dealing in body parts. I only cut him to pieces to be able to carry him,” the suspect added.
