Security Guard Butchers Former Boss To Death For Taking Him To Court Over Alleged Stealing In Rivers

A security guard, John Danjuma, who allegedly butchered his former employer to death with cutlass has been arrested by the Rivers State Police Command.
According to report, the suspect killed the deceased at her residence at Dandison close, off Amaechi Drive, in the GRA, Port Harcourt on Tuesday, May 9, 2023. The deceased identified as Boma Amaomu-Jumbo was a former Director of Admin in UPTH.
Danjuma was earlier arrested and is standing trial for allegedly stealing the sum of $10, 000 from the deceased. He denied stealing the money. He was granted bail and the case was adjourned to a later date for continuation of hearing.
On how he killed his former boss, Danjuma confessed to policemen at the State Criminal and Investigation Department in Port Harcourt, that he sneaked into the residence of his former boss in the wee hours of the morning ahead of the next court hearing of the case fixed for Friday, May 12, 2023.
After finding his way into the compound, he destroyed the kitchen protector in order to gain access into the main building and hid himself there to perfect his plan.
He then reached for a machete he found in the kitchen and waited till it was raining then went into one of the rooms and butchered his former boss to death. After committing the crime, he stole some of her jewellery and attempted to escape.
But luck ran out of him, as neighbours raised alarm upon seeing blood stains all over his body as he was leaving the building.
During interrogation, Danjuma, while confessing to the crime, claimed that the woman accused him of stealing her money, about $10 000.
“Me and she are having issues and this woman is prosecuting me in court and our case is coming up next tomorrow. They accuse me of stealing $10, 000. But I did not steal the money,” he said.
Spokesperson of the command, SP Grace Iringe-Koko, who confirmed the incident and the arrest of Danjuma, said the matter has been transferred to the State Criminal and Investigation Department.
