Enugu man kills older lover, attempts selling her car
A 22-year-old man from Enugu State, Southeast Nigeria, killed her lover, who is 10 years older than he is.
The man, identified as Chidubem Osuagwu also stole the victim, Amarachi Chukwu’s Toyota Corolla car.
The police nabbed Chibubem while he attempted to sell the stolen car. Daniel Ndukwe, the spokesperson for the Enugu police command, said the suspect had been arraigned.
In his statement on the incident, Ndukwe said, “Investigation revealed that the suspect and his cohort, at large, had in the morning hours of the mentioned date, conspired and went to the house of the victim, attempting to take away her Toyota Corolla key, which she resisted.
“And upon her resistance, they tied her hands, legs and mouth with clothes; locked her inside the house and made away with the car.
“Her decomposing remains were, however, found in the said apartment on Nov. 4, after the door was forced open by police operatives serving in Ikirike Police Division of the Command, following receipt of a report that an offensive odour was oozing out of the apartment.
“The police operatives evacuated the remains to the hospital, where doctors confirmed her dead and the corpse deposited in the mortuary for preservation and autopsy,” he said.
The suspect is currently remanded in prison, the police added.
