28 year old man has been arrested by River State Police in suspect of murdering his girlfriend after trying to carry out abortion.
The body of the victim identified as Ifeayinwa Ani was discovered in front of the Eliozu Health Centre and reported to the Okporo Divisional Police Station by the Chief Medical Officer of the health centre, Dr. Ama Flag-Amachree, who also revealed to the policemen that she noticed three incisions, possibly made by injection syringes, on the buttocks of the deceased.
The Chief Medical Officer in her reports told the police officers that Ifeayinwa’s body was dumped I front of the health centre by unidentified persons.
The deceased before her death was said to have loved her boyfriend, who is also believed to have murdered her, so much that she moved into his apartment and started living with him even though they were not married.
Investigations carried out by the police revealed that Ahamehule who attended Government Technical
College, Port Harcourt and deceased girlfriend were supposedly in a very happy relationship until he noticed she started receiving phone calls from members of the opposite sex which he termed suspicious.
Ahamehule tearfully revealed to the police during questioning that he got so aggravated by the frequent calls from unknown persons, that in anger, he sent
Ifeayinwa packing from his family house where she
had been living with him since 2012.
The father of the deceased, Godwin Ani, also confirmed to police that his daughter and Ahamehule had been living together before her death even though he never approved of it, his pleas for her to return home had all been disregarded and
Ifeayinwa had told him that Ahamehule owed her the sum of N51,000, and vowed not to return to her father until Ahamehule paid his alleged debt.
Officers of the Okporo Divisional Police had gone to
Ahamehule’s house to arrest him following Dr. Flag-
Amachree’s report and Mr. Ani’s statement, to arrest
him, only to find that he had absconded from home.
He later showed up at the police station accompanied
by his lawyer.
According to the statement tendered by Ahamehule,
he last saw the deceased in November last year,
adding that he had given her N20,000 which she
needed to carry out an abortion.
The Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Tunde
Ogunsakin, confirmed that the case has been
referred to the State Criminal Investigation
Department of the Police Command for further
investigation, and that Ahamehule will be charged to court if found guilty.
