Oh no! Man murders Austria-based Lover in Edo state

 

 

The Edo State Police Command of the Nigeria Police Force has declared a
manhunt for a suspected witness of a dastardly murder that was likely
committed in the early hours of Christmas Day.

The manhunt
followed the arrest by the Ikpoba Hill Police Division of the suspected
murderer, Mr. Festus Aimufua, for the wicked murder of one Ms. Rose
Aifuwa, a middle-aged Benin woman based in Austria, who had come home in
a healthy, hale and hearty condition to celebrate the Christmas and New
Year festivities with her family and friends.

Mr. Aimufua, who was said to be a lover of Ms. Aifuwa before she travelled to Austria, murdered the
deceased
and thereafter dumped her corpse on the road along Upper Mission Street
extension around Oando Filling Station in Benin City in the early hours
of Christmas Day.

The gory sight of the woman’s physically
assaulted and mangled body on the tarred road of the highly populated
market street soon attracted a large crowd of onlookers some of whom
would in no time identify her corpse and family, resulting to the
invitation of the police and eventually, investigation into her sudden
death.

In spite of the scanty information surrounding the
death, the state police command soon began to unravel the mystery
surrounding the woman’s death with the arrest of the lover in connection
to the murder.

Mr. Aimufua, the alleged murderer and lover popularly
known as “Two Million,” might have killed the deceased after she
insisted on collecting a certain amount of money running into millions
of naira, which he allegedly owed her.

Sources said the debt
accrued from the unpaid spare parts the woman supplied the lover boy who
owns a spare parts shop in Benin City.

As at the time of
filing this report, the police had already began its search for an
alleged accomplice of the murder, who witnessed and possibly assisted
the prime suspect to carry out the heinous act.

Saturday Mirror
further gathered that the case would be transferred to the State Crime
Investigation Department (SCID) for a detailed investigation of the
murder.

While police investigations continue, family members
and residents of the community have been calling for justice for the
family of the dead since Christmas Day.
