Two women, a teacher at Handmads International Catholic School, Aguda, Lagos and her accomplice have been arrested for threatening to kill the school head-teacher, a Reverend Sister.
The suspects have confessed that they wanted to teach the head teacher, Rev. Sister Mary Okolo, a bitter lesson for her highhandedness. The suspects, Ngozi Nnabude, 46, and Uchenna Agagwaonye, 40, are blood relations.
The Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, said investigation into the case revealed that the teacher, Uchenna Agagwaonye, was frustrated by what she termed ‘highhandedness’ of the school head-teacher, and decided to make life miserable for the Catholic nun by engaging her sister, Ngozi, a woman, with an outstanding knowledge of the use of computers and telephones.
“They conspired to put the nun under constant fear and apprehension of imminent danger. When the threat to maim, kidnap, kill and expose her unfounded secret sex life was continuous, Rev. Sister Okolo reported the matter to the command’s Anti Kidnapping unit.
“The intelligence component of the command was directed to unmask those behind the threat to life of the nun. The intelligence revealed that Agagwaonye’s job was to monitor Okolo and pass information gathered to her sister, Ngozi, who now called the Rev. Sister to tell her movement. She used to tell the nun such threat messages like: ‘I can see you, you are putting on this and type of clothes and shoe, you are in so and so place, you can’t hide from us and you will be killed soon.”
According to him, the sister was frightened as the caller was getting accurate information about her. However, the suspects have confessed to the crime and detectives investigating the case have been charged to find out if the suspects have the capacity to carry out their threat, if they are working with other criminals, and if there are other persons they are still torturing physiologically as they did to the Rev. Sister.
