April 6, 2016 – Pictures: Notorious Robbery Gang Who Used Hammer To Kill 7 Tricycle, Keke Napep Operators Arrested In Enugu

2 notorious armed robbers who specialise in using hammer to kill tricycle riders in Enugu and its environs have been arrested.

The suspects identified as Kennedy Ihunegbo and Nonso Azubuike escaped arrest at Keffi in Nasarawa after killing a tricycle rider in January 2016 and relocated to Enugu.

According to Enugu State police command, the suspects had killed 7 tricycle riders with an hammer.

Enugu CP Nwodibo Ekechukwu said the suspects commenced operations in January by snatching tricycles at gunpoint on Ogui Road, Mosque area.

Their Modes of Operation

“The modus operandi of the duo was to ask each tricycle operator conveying them to drop them at their purported building site, normally in a lonely place.

They would then request the operator to carry blocks for them in the tricycle, to another location. They would then hit the tricycle operator in the head with a very big hammer repeatedly as he bend to carry the block until he dies. “This was the method used in killing their seven victims on two dates in January and March at various times of the days. “In an instance, the head of victim was shattered.

The two would then take away the victim’s tricycle and sell it. They forged a dealer’s receipt of DON Investment Limited, Nnewi, to convince prospective buyers to purchase the tricycles.”

Item recovered from the suspects at the time of their arrest include 7 stolen TVS tricycles, 1 Ford car with registration # AJ 656 EKJ, a big hammer used in killing their victims, a shovel used in digging shallow graves to bury victims.

The suspects told police they mainly rob non-Igbo speaking riders to avoid the operators understanding their conversations in Igbo language which might lead to their arrest.

One of the suspects, Kennedy Ihunegbo died on March 19 2016 shortly after he took ill in police detention.

His body has been taken to a mortuary in Enugu.

    I think the best thing for the remaining one alive is to kill him with thesame Hammer. They shouldn‘t just hit his head with it bcos that will kill him easily.

    First of all, they should pluck out one of his eyes. Then they should use the hammer to break all his foot and allowed to enjoy the pains for about 7 days.
    Then while in pains, his hands goes next. And another 7days. Feed him with only sandy garry, with salt no sugar all through. Then break his spanal cord with the hammer. Then finally, his head if his still alive by then.
    The purpose of this slow death is to enable to prepare a befiting place for him in his kingdom-Hell.

    My strolling continues…

    I would have advocated for the swift exercution of those criminals, but maybe I have to go with D Hunter’s recipe: they should die slowly and painfully.

    Please, D Hunter, were you a torturer before? I know you are an Igbo man, but is your mother from Iraq?

    I have always said it, one should fear the so called “small man” because the wickedness of the small man is boundless. How can a supposedly ordinary man exhibit such venomous wickedness towards a struggling man like keke driver or a fellow human being? Robbers are real demons.

    This is pure wickedness and evil! Why not leave their victims alive and go with their tricycles? They kill, bury and go with the tricycles. What kind of beasts are these ones?. The one dead is already resting in pieces in hell and the one still alive, I suggest they kill him the same way. Haba! God punish satan 100X.

    The families of their victims will be looking for their father, son or whatever they are to their respective families not knowing that they’ve been killed, buried in a shallow grave and robbed of their tricycles/vehicle. God forbid! RIP victims.

    Hahahahahaha IRAQ? Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Just seeing this…my lovely mother? From Iraq of all places? @ Metu. Hahahahahaha. U can be very funny at times. Iraq for where???

    Humm… Metu, I am not an Igbo man neither is my mom from Iraq at all.

    Would you blame me for sounding so wickedly? No! These demons were so mean and inconsiderate. Just imagine killing SEVEN healthy people just like that. Some of which were even family men with wives and children waiting for them at home only to hear that, their breadwinner is killed and robbed at thesame time. Rendering the unfortunate woman a widow and the children, fatherless, all because of some greedy foolish wicked souls. Just imagine that.

    So, I was never a torturer before too. its a case of “man makes man to be wicked“
    Stay sweet.
    D Hunter.
