Ifeanyi Njoku Kills Precious Okeke
According to Punch, the man murdered his girlfriend for ritual purposes in their apartment on Oke Street, where both lovers lived together.
It was gathered that a native doctor, who was assisting the suspect, had instructed him to have sex with Okeke’s corpse for seven days.
Njoku was said to have engaged in the illicit act with the corpse for six days before he was caught by his neighbors who couldn’t withstand the stench emanating from his apartment.
A source, Elizabeth John said after the neighbors informed the management of the estate about the incident, a search was conducted in the apartment, and Okeke’s decomposing corpse was found.
She said, “The boy killed his girlfriend about six days ago, and he confessed that he wanted to use the girl for money rituals. He said he was told that he should have sex with his girlfriend’s corpse for seven days, but he was caught on the sixth day. Today (Monday) is supposed to make it the seventh day.
“The smell of the corpse had been disturbing neighbours in the compound and other residents. So, they called the estate chairman to help in confirming what was going on in the apartment and while searching the apartment, they found the girl’s body.
“The boy was arrested and taken to the Lamgbasa Police Station and during interrogation, he confessed that he killed his girlfriend six days ago.
“We learnt that the boy offered N6m to kill the case; we also learnt that he brought the girlfriend from the village and they just moved into the estate.”
When contacted, Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the incident, adding that the deceased and the suspect were lovers.
He said, “Two suspects, Ifeanyi Njoku and Mbam Atunmufor, 36, have been arrested. They have been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, for further investigation. Njoku was the one that rented the apartment.”
