The Nasarawa State Police Command has commenced investigation into the alleged murder of one Joseph Achuku.
Joseph Achuku was brutally murdered after winning N11 million on football betting platform, “Betnaija”.
The command’s Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Idrisu Kennedy, told the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, that available information indicated that the killing might not be unconnected with the N7.4 million the victim won in the Bet-Naija game.
Kennedy said the corpse was recovered on Sunday along Federal University, Lafia, following distress calls from residents of the area.
He said the remains which were deposited at Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital mortuary were released to the family of the deceased on Tuesday for burial.
The PPRO said though no arrest had been made, the command would ensure that the perpetrators were arrested and prosecuted.
