Ogbonna said Bright and Victor, aged nine and seven, were allegedly strangled to death in their home in Osisioma on Good Friday, while their parents, were away.
The police spokesman said the principal suspect, Chukwuebuka Nnamani, was arrested with the help of his alleged accomplice, one Amanna, who was caught by people in the neighbourhood when he returned to burgle the Osuagwu’s house.
He added that Amanna, who lived in the same neighbourhood, took advantage of the absence of the occupants to sneak into the house to steal.
Ogbonna said “He also told the angry crowd that Nnamani paid him N20,000 to assist him to commit the dastardly act.
“He told the police that he was watching the environment for Nnamani to ensure that no one entered the place, while he strangled the boys to death.”
