The suspect then dumped the victim’s body along Benin-Ondo Road (Benin Bypass) and fled with his Toyota Camry, according to the police.

Mr Nwabuzor said the investigation by the Anti kidnapping and Cybercrime Unit from the police headquarters in Benin City led to the doctor’s arrest and the recovery of the car in Osogbo, Osun State.
