Taraba State Police Command has arrested a 31-year-old man, Munda Bala, who killed his girlfriend, Imbajuri Ambisi, because she dumped him.
Bala, a native of Donga Local Government Area, reportedly conspired with his two friends to kill his girlfriend and burn her body to ashes before burying her in a bush.
The command’s police spokesperson, David Misal while parading the suspects told newsmen that a manhunt has already been launched to arrest the other fleeing suspects.
While parading the suspects, Bala confessed that he killed his girlfriend because he got jealous after she left him for wealthy men. He blamed the sad act on jealousy and hardship.
“I fell in love with Imbajuri Ambisi. She became my girlfriend; I got her pregnant and she delivered a baby boy and killed him after seven months.
“This got me angry and I couldn’t tell anyone. My money got finished and she ran away to some wealthy guys who engage in the selling of rosewoods to foreigners.
“This got me jealous and I met two of my friends who advised me that if I really want my heart to be at rest, I have to kill her, hence our decision to eliminate her,” he said.
Meanwhile, a student of Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED) has been arrested for allegedly attempting to kill his girlfriend and colleague after stealing the sum of N57,000 from her account.
The victim, Danni Iyabo, who is also a student of TASUED, disclosed that her ‘fake friend’ stole her money and poisoned her with Sniper because he is jealous that she has attained a greater height in the comedy business before him.
