“I have been working in that company in the last four years.
“When Nwachukwu got a job in the factory, I was the person who taught him how to operate the machine and since then, we became close friends.
“One day, while at work, Nwachukwu told me his brother, who is based in South Africa, had been sending money to him to build a house for him.
“He showed me an alert of N13 million, which his brother just sent to him.
“He told me that he would be travelling to his village to carry out the project.
“I became jealous and decided to steal the money.
“Since we were friends, it was easy for me to trick him into divulging his phone password.
“I went through his phone and discovered his ATM card personal identification number.
“A few days to his journey to village, we worked on the same shift.
“I lured him outside the company and stabbed him to death with a knife.
“I dragged his body into the bush, but because I didn’t want people to recognise him, I cut off his neck and buried it.
“I took his ATM card to some fraudsters, one of them is called Yusuf.
“I told Yusuf that I wanted him to assist me, so that we could hack the account.
“The account was hacked and we removed N2.2 million from it.
“I later had issue with Yusuf because he and friends wanted to cheat me.”
Nwachukwu’s account was hacked by Goswill Uche Ogbonnaya, 29, who is a graduate of Computer Science from University of Uyo.
Ogbonnaya, who introduced himself as an electrical part seller in Aba, Abia State, said: “I was arrested because some friends brought an ATM card and asked me to withdraw money from the card through a payment application known paystack.com, which I had been using to do my business.
“Most of my customers have been using the App to buy and sell their good.
“I used the card to make a purchase and used the authentication number to credit my paystack wallet with the card.
“I took just N1 million from the account.
“They requested that the money should be sent to a Bureau De Change account because they didn’t want trouble.
“I contacted my friend who lives in Lagos.
“My friend connected me to an Alhaji, who gave his account and took N400,000 as commission.
“The remaining N600,000 was sent to their account through Bright Tony.
“I started paying the money into their accounts until I remitted N480,00 to other parties.
“It was on July 3, 2020 that I was arrested.
“Tony called that he wanted me to assist them again to collect money the account.
“When I showed up at Tony’s place, police arrested me.”
