Recall that the Petroleum and Gas Engineering student was arrested on Wednesday, October 25, after the decomposing body of his girlfriend was found in his apartment.
While being paraded before newsmen on Thursday, he alleged that he is innocent of the allegation and doesn’t know what killed the deceased.
He stated that he found her lifeless in the morning after she had spent the night at his house. He further explained that he didn’t raise an alarm or report the incident to the police out of fear of being wrongfully blamed for her murder.
Speaking further, he claimed that the corpse was still intact in the bag, contrary to the widely circulated claim of dismemberment.
However, it’s important to note that blood was dripping from the bag when he was apprehended, casting doubt on his story.
The police, speaking on the case, said operatives of Ozuoba Division received a complaint from a neighbor that a foul stench was emanating from their compound on Road 20, back of NTA Ozuoba.
In response to the complaint, they visited the house, where they discovered the decomposing body of the deceased, and immediately took the suspect into custody.
