The Lagos Police command has arrested a 45-year-old married trader at
Ladipo market, Mr. Victor Umeh over the death of his lover, Happiness in
his home in Lagos.
The incident which
happened on Saturday at his house at 5/7 Michael Osisipi street off
Banjo Oyewele street, saw Umeh brutally beating the deceased to death in
his house. He was arrested while trying to do away with her corpse.
The Plateau State-born Happiness was said to have visited Umeh who
hails from Orumba South local government in Anambra in a bid to take her
to a popular night club to celebrate her birthday.
Things turned sour when Happiness greeted a male friend at the club. This angered Umeh, who reportedly left her at the club.
The deceased however returned to Umeh’s house, to probably plead but was beaten to death in the process.
Umeh whose wife and four kids live in his village attempted to carry
her corpse before he was apprehended. The corpse was retrieved from
Umeh and deposited at the Isolo General Hospital mortuary.
