The deceased, Uche Obiora, was said to have visited her lover’s home over the weekend.
There were, however, different
accounts as to how the tragedy
struck. A version of the account said
a quarrel ensued between them,
over suspicion by Obiora that her boyfriend, Ernest Ihaza, was having
an affair with another lady.
Another version stated that during
the visit, Ihaza announced his
intention to discontinue with the
relationship. During the verbal
confrontation between them, Ihaza
was said to have stormed out of his apartment.
However on arrival, he reportedly met Obiora writhing in pains on the floor holding on to her stomach. Obiora, who later reported the case
at the Igando Police Division,
disclosed that Obiora drank poison.
