Emeh Kalu and his accomplices, Irem Ifeanyi Mbah, Igwe Anya Chima, and Okorie Okam, were then arrested after a police investigation revealed they could have a hand in the murder.
Emeh Kalu is being treated as the main suspect, the mastermind behind the operation, and the executioner.
The killing of Nneka was investigated after a complaint was received from the inhabitants of Ngugworo community, Ebonyi State, a border town to Abia State, where the victim lived, when the late Mrs Kalu’s decorposing body was discovered in their neighborhood.
The deceased’s husband, Emeh Kalu, craved Nneka’s considerable assets, including landed property, residences, money in the bank, and a booming business, according to the police.
He wished to inherit the assets as soon as possible.
He employed the help of five other criminals to stage the kidnapping of his wife by persuading her to meet him at a junction to pick up some household items.
The crooks strangled her after acquiring crucial information on the whereabouts of title documents and other pertinent paperworks among her possessions, according to the investigation.
Efforts are being intensified to arrest other suspects and persons indicted in the matter with a view to concluding the investigations.
The Police in a statement Wednesday condoled with Nneka’s family for the unfortunate loss.
