The 28-year-old man, who allegedly killed his Facebook friend and dumped the body in a bush in Nanka, Anambra State, has revealed the motive behind his action.
The suspects, Angus Chukwuebuka Nwankwo, and his brother, Chidiebere Omeyi, were recently arrested on grounds of killing a homosexual man.
Nwankwo said he met with the deceased on Facebook where they agreed to meet in Nanka for homosexual acts.
It was believed that the duo dumped the body of the man in a bush and was caught in the action.
Speaking on why he killed the man, Nwankwo said: “We met on Facebook and he asked if I can engage in homosexual acts with him and I said no, but after much pressure, I succumbed. He promised to give me N20,000 if I agree to have sex with him. As soon as he came in, I asked for the money and he said he would give me the money after satisfying the sexual urge, which brought him all the way from Imo State. I insisted he must pay me the money he promised. That was how the fight started. He was the first to hit me with a stick and I fell down. My younger brother who was with me holding him down while I stood up and picked the stick and hit him and he died.”
