One of the suspects Ezeanyido, who said he was a taxi driver before he joined the robbery gang said, “I and my friend, Okocha came to Abuja, so we picked the man in our cab. When the man noticed that we wanted to rob him, he started dragging the steering with the driver; so this brother (Agbo) hit him on the shoulder with a hammer and we stopped the cab and allowed him to go, but he was not dead when we left him.” and now we are surprised to hear that he died. .
