The atmosphere at Okpuno Nnewichi, Nnewi, in Nnewi North local government area of Anambra state was tensed up on Wednesday, November 7, when a Fuel Station Manager at NENCO Fuel station was murdered by his employer.
It was gathered that trouble started when the director(name not ascertained) told the manager to immediately provide the sum of N40,000 which he said was missing from the company’s purse.
The manager reportedly begged his employer to bear with him and deduct the said sum from his November salary, but the director of the fuel station declined and insisted that the money must be provided instantly.
What seemed to be a mild drama turned bloody when the director of the company, in a desperate move to recover the said money, stabbed his employee several times with a screwdriver before he collapsed.
He was rushed to the Rose of Sharon Specialist Hospital, along Oba Rd., Nnewi, where doctors confirmed he was dead.
The director of the fuel station disappeared from the hospital immediately his employee was pronounced dead.
The body of the deceased was, however, taken away to an undisclosed destination by police operatives in Nnewi.
The Anambra State Police spokesman, Haruna Mohammed, confirmed the development when contacted but said the headquarters is yet to get the full detail of the incident.
