The Nigeria Police Force has paraded one Jonathan Marcus over the April 1, 2024 killings of an 80-year-old Mr. Adebola Ezekiel and his wife, Abiodun Ezekiel at the Apo Legislative Quarters in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

The couple were discovered to have been gruesomely murdered by the police at their home located at Zone D, 1st Gate, Apo Legislative Quarters of the nation’s capital.

Parading the suspects in Abuja on Friday, FCT Commissioner of Police, CP Ben Igweh, said the suspect who confessed to the killings, said his gang killed the couple for failing to fulfil a promise made by the victims to give him some money.
