Exclusive update: Man accused of killing banker over dented car in Rivers states his side of the story

Yesterday, LIB shared a report of a 28 year old Union Bank staff, Paschal Chukwuebuka Nnorom, who died on May 13th after he was allegedly dragged along the road by a motorist, Joseph Udo who dented his SUV and attempted to flee without fixing it in Port Harcourt, Rivers state (Read here)

In an exclusive chat with LIB, Joseph denied dragging the deceased on the expressway. According to him, he was driving along the road when suddenly the deceased ran after his car and took hold of his car steering.


According to Joseph, he thought the deceased was an armed robber. He denied knowing that he caused a dent on the deceased's car prior to the confrontation. Read what he told LIB below ...
"It was on Saturday the 13th of May at about 3.30pm. I drove out from MTN road and was about to enter the express road. I looked at the express road to ensure that there was no other car coming from the express road. I then maintained the service lane as I saw other cars coming. I passed the MTN office and as I was about to go past one of commercial buses parked along the road. All of a sudden, I didn't know that someone was pursuing me. Before I could understand what was happening, somebody grabbed me and the steering with my seat belt and the shirt that I wore. As he held me, the next thing was for him to hit me. I thought he was an armed robber. I was surprised. All my thinking was that he is an armed robber that wants to attack. From that moment, he started to drag with me. My vehicle was still moving. I said what is happening. Before I knew it, the next thing for this guy to do is for him to grab my steering and turn the steering to the speed lane. I was trying to divert so that I would not hit the pavement. That was the area that he now swapped the steering by force and then he hit the pavement. The next thing is for the two airbags to explode and they covered the vehicle. If you look at the vehicle, it is only the drivers side that was affected and the Tyre burst. From that moment, I did not know what was happening again because of the shock from the accident. Somebody just opened the door. When I came out, the ttouts there rushed down and started beating me. However other passersby came to my rescue, saying it was not my fault". According to him, police officers arrived the scene and then started shooting teargas. The police thereafter took him to the station and detained him for 11 days. "This is the true story. Any other story being said is false. I spent about 11 days in the cell before they now transferred the case because they said they wanted to take the case to court. The court granted me bail last Tuesday May 23rd. Even while in court, they sent their people because I heard that the guy was whether Ogboni or whatever. So there people came to the court and said that whenever I come out, they would shoot me, they would do this. They threatened me, threatened my wife, threatened all family. Till now, my wife is not at home because of the threat. This people, they don't even want anything from me. All they want is for me to remain in cell till I die. That is their aim. They are not even saying we should settle. The vehicle is still in police custody. As you see me so, I don't have anybody. I am not a trouble maker. I never find trouble before. I am not a taxi driver. I don't even use to go out" Joseph who assists his wife at her restaurant after he lost his job at an oil-field in Onne, denied knowing he scratched the deceased's car "I didn't even now. If I knew I would have stopped. I was moving at the back of one other vehicle. I didn't even know. Had it been I knew, I would have stopped. Why shouldn't I stop?".
The matter is currently before the Elelewon magistrate court.

I just knew d was more to this story. The Union bank guy is a tout 4rm all indication. It was all an accident therefore Next Generation if at all d is anytin like dat he will learn some manners. People should learn how 2 settle disputes amicably. It's a lesson 2 a lot of us. This guy is innocent.

Rollynstonne said...

This dude is liar....obviously there was an altercation btw the 2 with Pascal being the aggressor which led to the Udoh guy driving off while Pascal was trapped to the car. Is on could have stepped out of his car and fought him like a man.it was a better option because ppl would have interfered.Rip to the dead,he deserves justice.

Inna Imam said...

The suspect doesn't sound believable. From the first story I think this is a case of murder

Libbarbie said...

Well some thing is fishy somewhere, the deceased wife's side doesn't add up. Your husband's hand was on the car and the driver begins to wind up and he didn't remove his hand but left it there to be jammed, wah kinda sorry is that Abi the window na express that wind without you taking note. Someone should comean say the real thing. May his soul rest in peace
P.s. I'm not here to condemn or accuse. #libbarbie

This side of the story sounds too dramatic to be true, so all this narration occurred in dat small space of time, now u are even trying too hard, u had to talk about losing ur job/ u don't go out, u are a cold blooded killer who was tired of life and was looking for whom to take along , dats why u didn't mind while the mob wanted to kill you.

How is it possible you were not aware of of denting his car you bloody murderer,so you don't want to die but you killed someone else claiming you tot he was a Robbed God will punish you, you had better watch your back because they will so take you unaware even if its 10years from now

If the deceased had taken his car reg. number and report it to the police he would not have lost his life. No matter what happened after he is dead. It is putty.

Court over to you but for me this guy is a murderer. which weapon was he carrying that you concluded he was an armed robber. At what speed were you moving that someone on foot was able to catch with you grab your steering, hold your seat belt, give you a slap and was still able to divert your car to hit the pavement. You only wanted to run away after realising you hit his car not because you thought he was a robber. You claimed he slapped you so there must have been an altercation so why didn't you stop if you didn't hit his car. The writer of your script didnt do a good job... just go and cool off in jail abeg. You just killed the guy for nothing

kay said...

Very true and would have gotten a better revenge he was seeking...

kay said...

If you not biased you "ll realized what happened showed signs of struggle on both sides, the deceased (may his soul rest in peace) was pulling d starring toward where he was standing which was at the drivers side and d driver was running away Wether to escape or with the aim of injuring d deceased or escaping from attack.this is not a case of entrapment of hand or finger because an entrapped hand can not have the freedom to move the starring and no man in his right senses will on his own scatter his own car as we see in the picture except something /someone stronger than him is chasing him...my conclusion I think the driver is aware he scratched someone's car and probably ran off only to find out he has not lost the person as the person had not given up on chasing him and then as a man put his hand into his own car he tried to take off but the deceased seem strong/maybe stronger than him which ─║ed to lost of life and destruction of vehicle ,this is my simple unbiased analysis .only God in heaven knows the truth

this guy is not shocked that the other guy is dead, as in dead.. he is not even sorry, and the way he even said they are not ready to settle after sending someone to an early grave like its a case of missing akara balls..this guy is heartless and should pay for his crime. you killed someone for god's sake, he is never coming back to his family. he is gone..kai! heartless soul. i believe the former story, for you to be talking like this, that means you dragged him on purpose. i would have faith, if it was abroad but naija, they could even let u go in a week which is why u did what u did and still not sorry. i feel for the family of the guy who lost his life over a dent he cld have fixed for a few thousand. you are heartless amn, very heartless

This man is a pathological and unrepentant liar. How can you give this kind of long story to cover your crime? We're you not the one who told the mob beating you that you are ready to die as long as you have achieved your aim. How can someone run after a running vehicle and grab the steering? Even Usain Bolt cannot catch up to a running vehicle trying to flee a crime. Liar, liar pants on fire!!

U have been briefed on what to say in self defence. Watch how u expose urself as a frustrated man. How does ur lost of job justify ur wicked action. Are u the only one that is out of job in this country that will warrant ur committing murder. I feel for u because u have a serious case to answer.

It is sad when people hit or scratch your car and claim they don't know, that is the dumbest lie to say, even when your glass is up you will know not to talk about when your glasses were down. So sad you had to take this road, let justice take it course. Someone hit my car a few years back and claim not to know and yet you sped off, chased the man, blocked him and I called the police and the man I no know say I jam am.

Sad!

My thoughts exactly!

DungaGerald said...

Being rational, I will believe the accused guy the more because his facts are detailed and straight to the point in a reasonable way. He is probably a victim of hard luck. I pray God vindicates him if he is innocent. RIP the deceased guy. His wife's version was so one sided and I never believed it. No man would be so evil to kill a man he has nothing to do with in that way within such a short time frame as they described the incident and still have the guts to tell the mob that he is ready to die. NO! Truth is, the deceased took laws into his hands and being a Nigerian and a resident of Port Harcourt where broad day robberies happen at police check points, I think he did what every smart Nigerian could have done. I suggest he go see a spiritualist or either pray very well for deliverance and breaking of bondages from bad luck and problems. Story said he lost his job with an oil firm, I'm sure after this case his poor wife might either leave him or start putting him through the emotional stress of feeling guilty of murder if she isn't a good woman. God help him.

Abby Oba said...

I do not believe the guy's story.How can you talk of settlement in a case like this. He did it intentionally but there's a lot of lesson to be learnt here. Had it been the late guy took his reg no and follow the case legally he would definitely alive today.

Pearl Emmanuel said...

He is saying the truth... How can he be holding stirring of the car and running with the car. The scratch was evn unnoticeable, the wife was evn telling to stop he refused. Biko you pple should leave Dis man alone. The other allegation was false. Eye witness....

U & I said...

My brother ask themoooo, the guy committed suicide if that's what actually happened.

Bodunrin said...

The accused has been able to describe a more logical explanation to what actually happened.The deceased's wife's story doesn't add up at all. While it cannot be determined whether he knew he had scratched the deceased's car or not, it is very apparent the dead man got into what is called road rage and in the process dragged the steering from the accused. Anyways the court will do their job. RIP to the deceased....And to us all, a lesson learnt.

Anonymous said...

Deliberate or not ; you killed somebody already and you are talking about settlement? Let the court decided. Death cases are not settled out of court.

Anonymous said...

The foolish man should be tried for deliberate murder...period

Anonymous said...

I believe this guy. The first story never said anything about an accident oR the guy hitting the pavement. It only said the suspect dragged him and ONLY stopped later so he could remove him from being connected to the car. That doesn't make sense. All he needs to do is wind down and the guys hand will be free. Proof in the picture above shows d car actually hit the pavement resulting in an accident.

Also to all those saying how will you hit a car and not know. Let us see the damage of the bankers car first. if it was a small scratch its possible he didn't know. If it was a big bash there is no way He won't have known period.

The most foolish comment so far.

Felix-Acata said...

Its obvious the murderer thought in his frustrated state its better to run than to go spend money that he doesn't have in repairing Paschal's car but unfortunately Paschal got hold of him, Still trying to escape not knowing that his car will be damaged when he hit Paschal to the pavement and that he will be mobbed.
Now he killed an innocent man cooking up lies for defense. Even if you are let go but God will judge you.

Chris Kessy said...

Even if court should allow you go, nnorom paschal blood will never let him rest. Rest in peace OLOYE.
