Two men identified as One Kito and Chidi has been apprehended for the murder of a homosexual man who contacted them via Facebook.
One Kito, aka Utali Ekwensu (the devil’s cane), and his abettor named Chidi were nabbed for murdering a man. After being interrogated they confessed to the crime and narrated how it happened.
Kito revealed that the deceased, who is from Benue state but lives in Owerri, contacted him on Facebook and propositioned him for sex. He accepted and they agreed to meet around Kito’s location. The man also promised to give Kito 20,000 Naira after their sexual appointment.
Furthermore, Kito had other plans. He said he connived with his friends to steal the 20K from the deceased when he arrives, without rendering the sexual service agreed upon.
When the deceased arrived as planned, Kito asked him for the 20K but the man said he will only pay after their affair. Kito then signalled his accomplice and he came out and forcefully tried to collect the money from the deceased.
The men said that a fight broke out and Kito hit the man with the weapon in his hand, killing him.
At first, Kito made it sound like he has multiple accomplices but when asked who else was involved in the murder, he said it was only him and Chidi.
It was reported that Kito specializes in luring gay men, raping them, collecting their money, before killing them. A witness claims his friend fortunately escaped from Kito’s snare.
