Police arrest man over lover’s death

The Police in Lagos say they have arrested a 50-year-old man over the ‘sudden death’ of his girlfriend, one Enobong Udoh, 38.

Muyiwa Adejobi, the state police spokesperson, said in a statement Sunday that the incident happened on April 11 at about 10.45 a.m.

Mr Adejobi said one Blessing Pius of No. 46, Adegboruwa Street, Igbogbo, Ikorodu, reported to the Police that the deceased was found dead in her house.

He said upon the report, the Police invited the deceased’s boyfriend for interrogation, where he allegedly confessed that the deceased was pregnant.

Mr Adejobi said the suspected boyfriend claimed that his late lover informed him of being pregnant since February.

“The suspect claimed he was in her lover’s house on April 10 to check on her at about 5.14 p.m. when the deceased informed him that she had terminated the pregnancy.

“The statements and utterances of the suspect revealed that he has some questions to answer.

“The Commissioner of Police in the state, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has ordered that the suspect be transferred to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation,’’ he said.
