Kingsley Agbaire, a Warri, Delta State-based businessman, allegedly killed his business partner and then broke down as the deceased’s body was exhumed to beg his ghost for forgiveness.
The incident is said to have happened on Wednesday in Warri and its video posted online on Thursday. The victim is identified as 51-year-old Lawrence Okoh, a Port Harcourt, Rivers State-based auto parts dealer.
The video showed Agbaire in handcuffs, crying out to his dead business partner for forgiveness as security agents worked to extract the corpse in a shallow grave where it was dumped in Warri.
“Lawrence, forgive me o. It was the devil that pushed me into killing you,” he cried.
Agbaire, also pleaded with the police to loosen his handcuffs so that he could beg his victim, but this request was rejected for fear that he might escape. He said in the video that his business relationship with Okoh started few years ago when he was working in Lagos and dealing in auto parts.
