I regret the action. Give me a second chance — Says 500-level ABSU student arrested for killing a rival cult member in Abia State

Emmanuel Victor, who is a 500-level Optometry student at Abia State University, has admitted that he was the one in the viral video where another final-year student Emmanuel Uche, was killed in March 2024.

Victor stated this while being paraded alongside 110 others in Umuahia on Sunday by the Abia State Command of the Nigeria Police.  When asked by newsmen, the suspect said, “I am here because I committed murder. I killed Emmanuel Uche,” stating that he is from Mbaitolu in Imo State and based in Port Harcourt.

“I am a student of Abia State University, Uturu, and studying Optometry, level 500. I called him. He is a member of another cult group that came to pick up a phone from us. After we finished talking, we told them that they should come back later in the day to pick up the phone. One of Emmanuel’s members, that is the one I shot at, escalated, and then I shot him in the leg.

I do regret the action. A day before that day, they come looking for one of my members. That night, my member was walking around their lodge and saw one of them. Then he took the phone from them and brought it to his lodge. The next day, when they came back to take their phone, the thing happened”

He pleaded for a second chance, stating that this was his first time killing somebody. According to the Police, “On 11/3/2024, a viral video surfaced depicting the murder of Emmanuel Uche, a 500-level student of Abia State University, in front of Miracle Lodge, Uturu.

Acting on credible intelligence, on 18/4/2024, at about 1100hrs, a team of police detectives from Abia State Police Command apprehended the principal suspect at Isiukwuato who was captured in the viral video committing the murder of Emmanuel Uche at Miracle Lodge, Abia State University, Uturu. The suspect, identified as Emmanuel Victor, has confessed to the crime. He is currently in lawful custody and will be charged to court”.
