Delta community youth protest release of murder suspect

Hundreds of youth in Ogharefe community in Ethiope West local government area of Delta state  Monday protested over the release of Samson, one of the three arrested suspects in connection with  alleged murder of one Kelly Onojaiyefe, a furniture  apprentice

It was learnt that the 29- year-old Kelly was reportedly stabbed several times and hit by plank on his head.

Sources said the deceased bled to death after sustaining injuries from the stabbing while fighting with one of his apprentice colleagues two weeks ago in Ogharefe town.

The late Kelly died on January 29, 2024, in what the family suspected to be an organised killing by people working with him at a Furniture Shop in Ogharefe.

He was said to have lost his life even before he could get to the hospital after he was allegedly stabbed several times and hit by wooden object on his head during a fight, which the family suspected was carried out by two or three of his colleagues.

It was gathered that soon after Onojaiyefe dropped dead, the shop owner, one Mr Samson, appeared,  rushed to Ogharefe Police Station, alongside one other person to make an entry.

Mr Samson was said to have reported at the police division that Kelly fell down after he was hit with a wooden object by the man he brought to the station while they were fighting over who gain possession to a charging point inside the shop.
