“I Will Die If I Reveal My Sponsors” – Man Arrested With Body Bag And AK-47 Rifle
Destiny Agbaijoh, a 25-year-old alleged murderer detained by the Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Ondo State, reportedly stated that he would die if he revealed his sponsors. Destiny was detained with one AK-47, one pump action, 91 5.56 mm rounds, 16 cartridges, and N347,000 in cash.
The suspect, who disclosed that he was a wood dealer, told reporters after being paraded in Akure, “I shall die if I expose my goal and those who sent me.”
When questioned why he did not take the bag to the police after discovering the contents, he stated, “l never knew it would later bring problem for me. I saw it in a bush at the place I am working. I saw it in a nylon bag they used to wrap it and I carried it to my village.
“I don’t know if it will later cause a problem. I was coming from Bayelsa State and was going to my hometown after Agadagba, in the Ese-Odo council area of Ondo State. The money is my own and it was from my timber business. “
Mr. Kayode Raji, the state Commandant of the NDLEA, said the suspect was apprehended during a stop and search operation along the Ore-Okitipupa route.
Raji stated that the suspect attempted to bribe his on-duty officers with the cash found on him, which his officers refused and arrested him.
“The suspect was arrested on the 20th of July, along the Ore-Okitipupa road, by our men on a stop and search operation,” he said. During the search, he was discovered with a variety of weapons and ammo.
“He was also arrested with strap bags and we asked him what it was used for, he said he would die if he confessed it.
“It looks like bags where they keep dead bodies or mangled bodies of human beings. We have done our preliminary investigation and we are going to hand him over to the Nigerian Police,” Raji stated.
