They were reportedly stabbed to death between 8am and 11am on Wednesday, December 15.

According to Ibe’s younger sister, Barrister Adanna Ibe, who was living with him, he was scheduled to leave for the United States of America with his friend on the day they were murdered.

He was said to be ready to leave for the airport and his friend came to pick him up, while she was at work.

She reportedly called him to wish him safe journey but could not reach him. After several attempts, she called his houseboy who said he left his boss at home to run some errands.

A disturbed Adanna decided to go back home, only to find the gate locked from the outside with a new padlock. She called the houseboy again who told her where to find the new key.

When she got inside the house, she found her brother and his friend in a pool of their own blood. They had been stabbed multiple times in the chest and abdomen while Ibe’s new car, luggage and some documents were carted away by the killers.

Meanwhile, the househelp has been named as the primary suspect in the case, according to a man who claimed to be the slain doctor’s neighbour.

According to him, the househelp is suspected to have poisoned the victims before stabbing them to death.

“It is believed that the house boy poisoned the doctor and his friend, hacked them to death, and stole his SUV, cash, and took off. I heard that he was arrested at the Nigeria-Niger border.” the neighbour said.

Friends of the deceased have taken to social media to mourn his demise.
