|Mr. Barry Ndulue|
Curiously, neither the driver of the chattered car nor his (Barry) business partner, identified as Paul Obioma Nnago, with whom he was.......
travelling, was hurt in the bizarre, tragic incident. Surprisingly also, the unknown gunmen took only the phones of the occupants of the car and fled the scene.
Already, the Lagos State Police Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Panti, has commenced investigation into the death of the businessman and father of three.
On the possible reason why Paul and the driver are being detained, a senior police officer at SCID Panti said that it was necessary to be sure that the duo were not the mastermind of the murder. “We hope to unravel the reason why Barry was killed while his friend Paul and the chattered car driver were left unhurt. Why did the assailants pick only their phones? There is a probability that one of them alerted the assassins of their present location and to hide the person’s identity their phones were taken.
“The Homicide section of the SCID after analyzing their call log will be able to determine their involvement in the matter. We will be able to uncover what happened and if they were not indicted, they will be released.”
Confirming the attack, the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Joe Offor said: “We learnt that he (Barry) was returning to Nigeria through Seme border when he was attacked by unknown gunmen. His body had been deposited in the mortuary while the case is currently being investigated by detectives attached to the state CID, Panti.”
He assured that the suspects, who are currently in detention, will be released as soon as it is confirmed that they are innocent.
