Girl Beaten To Death In Enugu
In a post shared on his Facebook page, Jerry narrated how his daughter died after he gave her to Ujunwa through a Port Harcourt-based woman, Mrs Nelly Okoroafor, who approached him in March 2022.
According to him, Okoroafor pleaded with him to give her his daughter to train in school through her friend, Ujunwa, and in return, the minor would look after Ujunwa’s newborn baby.
The Benue-based musician said after he sent his daughter to Ujunwa in Enugu, he received a strange call from an unknown caller who used Ujunwa’s phone number to inform him that his daughter was kidnapped alongside Ujunwa and her own child on the 10th November, 2022.
Jerry said the abductors demanded N20m ransom as condition to release his daughter but he told him that Precious was only a house help to Mrs Ujunwa.
However, Mrs Ujunwa and her own daughter were allegedly released from the kidnapper’s den and Precious was alleged to have been murdered.
The man said Ujunwa was later arrested by the Anti-kidnapping squad of the Enugu State Police Command, over his daughter’s alleged disappearance and murder.
Upon her reported arrest and interrogation, the suspect admitted that she beat Precious to death and dumped her body in a bush near a community called Ituku Ozalla in Enugu.
A man claiming to be the chief in Ituku Ozalla told the police that he had directed youths in the community to bury the corpse but instead they burnt it.
