A woman identified as Betty Ozige Nwabueze was reportedly beaten to death by her boyfriend, Udenne Uwabie also known as J-Boy after a heated argument around Wimpy Junction, by Ikwerre Road in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state.
The Rivers State Police Command exhumed the girl’s body from the middle of the one-room apartment she shared with her boyfriend.
According to reports, J-boy is a serial woman beater, who again beat Betty on December 2, 2018, until she slumped and died.
Upon seeing her body, he reportedly panicked and dug a grave in said one-room apartment and buried his girlfriend.
The fight which led to this unfortunate situation was reportedly caused by J-boy’s accusing his girlfriend, Betty, that she was cheating on him.
Betty’s brother, Eze Anyaele, also claims to have asked J-boy for his sister’s whereabouts on Monday, but J-boy claimed he had any idea of her whereabouts.
Prince was said to have later confessed his horrific act to his friends who then reported to the Police.
Rivers State police command spokesperson, Nnamdi Omoni, told reporters that Better’s body has been exhumed and transferred to a morgue, from where an autopsy is expected.
The suspect had since been arrested and is helping the police in their investigation and would soon be charged to court.
