Command Secondary School student expelled for stealing, masterminds the killing of Commandant
The 2 Div. Nigerian Army, Ibadan, on Wednesday paraded six suspects for allegedly killing Col. Anthony Okeyim, former Commandant, Command Secondary School, Apata, Ibadan.
The lifeless body of Okeyim was found at the premises of the school on December 12, 2016. The command had earlier informed the public that the late Okeyim died as a result of rise in intracranial pressure from intracranial hemorrhage caused by fracture of the skull.
Presenting the suspects to newsmen, the Deputy Director, Public Relations, 2 Div. Nigerian Army, Col. Timothy Antigha, said that investigation conducted showed that the suspects played varying roles in the killing of Okeyim.
Antigha said that the alleged killer of the senior officer stole his Samsung X4 phone and this helped in arresting the suspects. He said that the suspects went to the Command Secondary School, Apata, with their Toyota Camry Car to kill the officer in his house.
Antigha said that one of the suspects was a student of the school who was expelled earlier by the school authorities over alleged theft. He said that the student gave the other suspects the logistics leading to the death of the senior officer.
