During interrogation by news men at the Nigeria Police Force State Headquarters, Port Harcourt on Wednesday, Bright Iheachi said he decided to adopt and eventually killed Fortune Obemba, Nelson Nwafor and Joy Adoki after one of the deceased boys, Fortune Obemba refused to give him his share of a business transaction he did with him.
