Remember Chef Emeka, the Abuja celebrity chef who was murdered at his apartment? Facts about his death are now emerging, ENigeria Newspaper reports.
ENigeria Newspaper heard on Tuesday evening that a friend of the deceased chef Emeka, who was found strangled and striped in his flat, has spoken out about the likely situation in which he was murdered.
“He (Eloagu) just returned to Nigeria from Dubai two weeks ago,” Ken, who is a close friend of Chef Emeka Eloagu, says. We talked for a long time, and he shared some of his intentions with me. It’s heartbreaking that this happened to him.
“On Sunday evening, he was brutally slain at his home in Katampe extension. His wife had left for a church function. In his apartment, he was visited by two men. I’d like to assume he knew who they were.
You also can’t just walk into his residence if the security guards haven’t cleared you. The security guards must have contacted to alert him to the men’s presence, and they would have been issued a pass.
They arrived, did their job, and then left. When his wife returned, she discovered him on the floor. He was brought to the hospital, where medical workers did everything they could to save his life, but he did not survive.
“It is not true that his assailants arrived wearing masks. There was no way they could have gotten into his flat that way. Those guys knew who he was, and he had to be anticipating them.”
Meanwhile, as of the time of posting this article, ENigeria Newspaper understands that roughly five people have been arrested in connection with chef Emeka’s murder, but the police have yet to make a public comment, indicating that the investigation is still ongoing.
The suspects have apparently been transported to the State Criminal Investigation Department’s Homicide Unit.
ENigeria Newspaper reported on Tuesday that the celebrity chef was discovered dead and naked at his apartment in Katampe extension, Abuja, on Sunday.
As events unfold, we’ll have more to say about it.
