Banker who Allegedly Hired Assassins to Kill her Husband gets N1 Million Bail from Court Rulings



A banker, Oluchi Tochukwu Onyebuchi, who allegedly hired two assasins to kill her husband, was granted N1 million bail by the Ebute-Meta Chief Magistrates’ court in Lagos on Tuesday.

The Magistrate, M.O. Olajuwon also ruled that the two alleged hired assassins, Chigozie Nworie and Kingsley Ofelete, be kept in custody at the Ikoyi Prisons.

The Guardian reported that the prosecutor, Insp. Julius Babatope, told the court Onyebuchi hired the two assassins to kill her husband on October 9 at No. 18, Fatai Kofo St., Agungi, Lekki.

He further said the accused took with her the victim’s car Land Rover jeep, HP laptop, iPhone, car documents and other valuables estimated at N9.3 million.

Onyebuchi had told the two assassins where she had kept the machete, cutlass and acid in her husband’s house which they were to use to kill him. The alleged assassins were caught absconding with the victim’s bloodstained Range Rover to deliver the car to Onyebuchi’s brother in Anambra.

The three are facing a three-count charge of conspiracy, robbery and attempted murder. The accused’s plea was not taken.

Olajuwon adjourned the case to January 23.

    The husband (Tochukwu Onyeabushi) of the accused is the main culprit. He fabricated and planned with the assassins to blackmail his wife…i know the couple very well and i know what any of them can do

    I read about this case and it appears that all is not as it is being reported. Some evidence points to the woman being framed by an allegedly abusive husband. I mean, the woman was supposedly estranged from her husband and living apart from him at the time of this incident yet she decided to keep acid and machetes for assassins to murder him in the husband’s house. The assassins could not carry their own weapons? There are too many holes in this story. I just hope the truth comes out eventually.

      Wait, you are trying to tell us that some people will allow themselves to be caught and charged for attempted murder just to set up someone? Like they will go ahead with the possibility of being jailed/killed? I don’t know the whole story but I don’t think bad people enjoy being caught they might enjoy doing bad things in secret though.

      The dissonance here is crazy.

      What do the assassins gain from being caught? Why haven’t they snitched on the man, is he using jazz??

    Is it a Landrover (i.e LR3 or LR4) or a Range Rover they stole.

    The man is definitely an abusive husband that is framing an innocent wife.

    when a woman is not submissive to her husband, she will see all sort of trash, when a man does not have enough patience to deal with his woman, he will see all sort of trash.
    Lets me objective, they were never meant for each other. The man was always thinking with his dick when they were dating while the woman was after the N9.3 when they were dating.
    Abeg, make i comot here, i get my own problem as well
