    A Lagos banker, Oluchi Tochukwu Onyebuchi, who allegedly hired two assassins to murder her husband was on Tuesday granted N1 million bail by an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.


    Magistrate M.O Olajuwon also ordered that the two alleged hired assassins, Chigozie Nworie (32) and Kingsley Ofelete (36), be remanded in Ikoyi Prisons.

    The Prosecutor, Insp. Julius Babatope, told the court that Onyebuchi, 32, contracted Nworie and Ofelete to assassinate her husband on October 9 at No. 18, Fatai Kofo St., Agungi, Lekki.

    He said, “The accused made away with the victim’s Land Rover jeep with Reg. No. LND 275 DZ after H@cking the complainant and pouring acid on him.
    The victim’s HP laptop, iPhone, car documents and other valuables estimated at N9.3 million were also taken away by the accused.
    Onyebuchi had informed the two accused on where she had hidden machete, cutlass and acid in her husband’s compound which they were to use in eliminating him.”

    Babatope said that Nworie and Ofelete were arrested with the victim’s blood-stained Range Rover on their way to deliver the car to Onyebuchi’s brother in Anambra.

    The trio are facing a three-count bordering on conspiracy, robbery and attempted murder.

    The accused plea was, however, not taken.

    The offences committed contravene Sections 228, 294 and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

    Olajuwon adjourned the case to Jan. 23, pending legal advice from the DPP.
