BENIN—A Benin palace chief and his wife (names withheld) have been arrested by the police in Benin in connection with the recent murder of two movie stars in his house.
Also, the police are hunting for two of their children in connection with the murder of the actors.
Police spokesman, Mr. Peter Ogboi, while confirming the arrest of the couple, disclosed that the police have intensified their investigation to unmask those behind the brutal killing of the movie stars.
According to Ogboi, the couple, said to be the proposed in-laws of one of the slain actors, Mr. Erauyi Ogbeide, a.k.a, Ukeke, invited him to their family house in Benin City only to be killed along with his colleague, Mr. Eghosa Idehen, a.k.a Erejiro who had accompanied him there.
It was alleged that the chief, on witnessing the killing of his guests in his sitting room, went into hiding instead of contacting the police, while his wife allegedly told the police that her husband was receiving medical attention in an undisclosed hospital for bullet injuries he sustained during the attack.
The police, in its investigation, however, found the claim to be false.
Their two sons, now at large, were said to have allegedly dragged the corpses of the actors from their parents’ sitting room to the veranda of the house as soon as the gunmen left the scene.
It would be recalled that the two Benin-based actors were murdered at about 8.45 pm on Tuesday, 9 March 2010 by yet-to-be-identified assassins

This is indeed outrageous and incredible!! Why didn't NFC published the names of these perpetrators of this hidious crime out? Things are really getting worsen in Nigeria by the day.What could be responsible for such awful actions?
However,l pray and l know that the law of camal would definitely takes it's course.

When is this Man´s inhumanity to man going to stop?
Thise two actors are the best things that ever happened to the Edo film industry since the time
of kokori and Idemudia . It is unfortunate that we seem to be taking one step foward and two steps backward. Not untill we start reasoning to see beyound our noses, the feature of Edo state in particular and Nigeria in general will continue to be in jeopady. Reply this thread
ayo abroad | 4/17/2010 3:17:22 AM
it is unfortunate that the thelittle unbrained assassines succeed in killing the great actors of all time,but one thing is certain ,they who live by sword must die by sword ,they say when one died his /her autobiography spread to the hearing of people,well,tis said actor who lost their lives untimely their spirit will not allowed the killers to have peace throughout this generation and the next if there is,and if this happened in abroad the said father inlaw shold be thoroughly interrogagted in order to get the fact hence he is only one who they might have lucky to survived the ugly incidence.above all,let not every body relied on the investigation of the police rather than the traditional way of handly this situation.we the entire people of orhiomwon feel that your vaccum can not be replace by any body in our heart.

we had the dribbles that late ukeke is a cultist, why now? because he is dead?. little about him he was a student of a political science in university of benin,and also a famous screen actor.
in the year 2000 at university of benin he was told to perform a character as a campus bad boy, the shooting location was at Professor OGBEIDE OFFICE. which eguavoen iyengumwena (a.k.a efuenbiro) took a character as a professor
