Six months after Osigwe Johnmark, a 24-year-old final year Biotechnology student of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Imo State, was shot dead while returning from a test, his ex girlfriend has been arrested in connection with it.
20-year-old Chitere Okoronkwo was picked up, on Monday, in Ama-Wire Urratta, by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Imo State Police Command and has since confessed to the August 8, 2018 assassination.
While confirming the news, the state Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galadanchi, said: “When their relationship got sour and ended, the girl demanded compensation. .
The deceased, due to persistent threats to life before being assassinated, had paid N1.8m for shop rent and N2m for interior decoration of the shop to the estranged girlfriend.
Not done with the threats, she demanded N3m, which the deceased gave through a lawyer. Before the money was finally paid to the lady, he was murdered inside his Mercedes SUV.
After his death, the lady fled to South Africa. Okoronkwo has confessed that she told a guy that she wanted the victim dead due to their misunderstanding.”
