On Monday 21 July, 2014, The Nigeria Police Area ‘E Command Festac responded to an emergency call at Amuwo Odofin involving the murder of Mrs. Njideka Lizzy – a divorcee and mother of four.
Once on scene, officers say they found the lifeless body of the victim in her apartment and her remains was immediately deposited at the nearest morgue while the Nigeria police Festac embarked on an intensive investigation and manhunt for her killer.

The gatekeeper at the deceased residence, who is also the prime witness, told the police that the suspect was not just a familiar and regular visitor but also considered a family friend. Hence, he never suspected anything as he opened the gate for the 33-year-old Kelechi Eze who hurriedly drove off in the deceased Range Rover SUV jeep at about 2:30am.
Information gathered by the Festac Police has it that the prime suspect, Mr. Kelechi Eze who was formally based in South Africa hails from Umuorji in Anambra State, and speaks multiple languages fluently including French. Preliminary investigation reported that the murder suspect was a hatchet man and serial killer who was compelled to relocate from South Africa to Ghana after being declared wanted by the South African security authority for grave atrocities.
The deceased family members reported that Mr. Kelechi Eze had been having a consummated relationship with late Mrs. Njideka Lizzy, which accounted for his incessant trips from Ghana to Nigeria. But the relationship turned sour when the suspect - Mr. kelechi Eze proposed marriage to late Mrs. Njideka Lizzy was turned down by the deceased and family members due to some undisclosed reasons.
It is believed that the disparagement of Mr. Kelechi’s marriage proposal by late Mrs. Njideka Lizzy took him aback; hence his sinister agenda to get even by hook or by crook.
The murder suspect not only snuffed life out of his unsuspecting victim who until death was a manager of Edmark International but also made away with her Range Rover SUV jeep, over $USD50,000, valuables worth over N8M and the decease mobile phones and ATM cards amongst others.
The hatchet man and serial killer- Mr Kelechi Eze who at the execution of his sinister agenda at Amuwo Odofin Festac immediately fled Nigeria for Ghana and from Ghana to Côte d'Ivoire was on Tuesday, July 29,2014 taken into custody by the Côte d'Ivoire security force following an orchestrated forensic auditing investigation, networked tracking and extensive surveillance masterminded by the acclaimed ACP Dan Nkem Okoro and his DPO - Area ‘E Command, Nigeria Police Festac.
In a press conference in Ghana, the IGP of the Ghana Police Service - Mohammed Ahmed Alhassan, and the Côte d'Ivoire security force commended ACP Dan Okoro of the Nigeria Police Force Area ‘E command for his flawless forensic prowess and disposition in solving crimes and concerted efforts to ensuring that criminals have no hiding place in Africa and beyond.
He further asserted that the murder suspect- Mr. Kelechi Eze who has been handed to the Ghanaian Security Force by the Côte d'Ivoire National Security Force shall in turn be processed and securely transported to Nigeria for further prosecution and execution.
On receiving the news of the apprehension of the dreaded serial killer, the entire residents of Amuwo Odofin, especially the immediate families, friends and colleagues of late Mrs. Njideka Lizzy applauded ACP Dan Nkem Okoro (Area ‘E Commander) and the Festac Police force for their ingenuity and responsiveness over the arrest of Mr. Kelechi Eze within one week of the incidence.
