The initial story was that he jumped from the 6th floor of his apartment building out of fear when the boys came to confront him, but the Cyprus police have ruled that out after they found stab wounds on his body.
Jerry Udumioh, aka MC Jerry, a popular comedian and event host (pictured right in handcuffs) was the first person the police arrested in connection with the murder.
Ebinabo is believed to have been stabbed multiple times by about six boys. They allegedly first drove to his friend’s house, kidnapped him and forced him to take them to Ebi’s house. They made him knock so that the victim would open the door without suspecting. When Ebi opened they door, he was allegedly stabbed and his throat slit.
The reason for the murder hasn’t been made clear but a source said the fight started the previous day at a Christmas party and it was over a Zimbabwean girl and some folks feeling disrespected. Someone got stabbed at the club that night, and the fight was taken to Ebi’s house the following day.
Jerry has been charged with ‘trespass’, kidnapping and serious assault.
