Two Brazilian suspects who were arrested in connection to the murder of a Nigerian DJ, Emmanuel Okonyia in Turkey, have narrated why they tied, tortured and killed him.
We earlier reported that the Nigerian DJ was found dead in his apartment at Mecidiyeköy with his hands and feet tied behind. An early police investigation revealed that Emmanuel who had a knife next to his body, was tortured before he was killed.
The owner of the apartment where Emmanuel İfeanyi Okonyia, who is a DJ in night clubs, had been calling her tenant for a couple of days and asked for help from the real estate agent when she could not reach her tenant.
Opening the door with his own key of the apartment, the real estate agent saw Okonyia motionless in the living room with his hands and feet tied behind with a cable. Closing the door with a panic, the real estate agent came out and called the landlord and explained the situation.
The two Brazilian suspects arrested over the murder incident were identified as Sandro Marcello A. and Jonathan Carvalho D. It was further learnt that they confessed to the crime and also accused the Nigerian DJ of refusing to pay them after a $200,000 drug deal. Sandro said;
“I went with my friend Carvalho and told him my wife is pregnant and that he should pay me my debt, he refused which led to a struggle.
“I wanted my debt, when he refused, we tied him and tortured him.”
The arrested suspects have already been charged to court.
