    Companies need to train their delivery agents not to go into compounds or buildings. All transactions should be conducted outside the gate in broad day light. Goods should only be handed over upon completion of payment process.
    This is terribly sad and wicked. They killed him because they wanted to steal the items obviously and had no plans of paying and threw him in the sewer to conceal their crime. Prison is too good for these ones. I hope justice is served speedily.

      Or better still, it’s time Nigerians join the rest of the modern world and pay before delivery. If you don’t like the product , give it back to the courier.

      This way, all time wasters will and people wasters will be cut off.

    This is the stuff of American crime reality shows! So crazy! They prob planned it all. Ordered what they couldn’t pay for and wanted to silence the witness. That’s why the death penalty is still in motion. Sad for the victims fam

    Oh my God. what is going on please? How can young people think up such a cruel plan and execute it and still show no remorse? These ones should just be shot to death. Please these online companies should be a cap on the price of items that can be paid on delivery. May the poor man’s soul RIP

    Human beings can be very wicked. Imagine these caricature /malnurished ones killing somebody just because they want to live above their means. God please comfort the family of the bereaved. All those involved in online businesses, you have to start thinking of a better way of providing adquate security for your delivery personel.
