A 25-year-old woman, Onyinye Chime, has allegedly killed her lover, Eleyi Azubuike, in Nigeria for asking her to abort her pregnancy.
According to Punch, the deceased had advised Chime to abort the pregnancy, which she objected to.
A source said that 29-year-old Azubuike also declined to give her money for upkeep.
âOnyinye was not comfortable with all these. So, she complained to people about it; but we didnât know she would act this way. She went to the extreme,â the source added.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, Haruna Mohammed, confirmed the incident.
He said, âThere was a report of alleged murder of one Eleyi Azubuike, 29, of Ochiagha Street, Nkpor, in the Idemili North LGA of Anambra State by his girlfriend one Onyinye, 25, of same Ochiagha Street, Nkpor, inside his room.
âPolice detectives attached to Ogidi division visited the scene and rushed the victim, who was found in a pool of blood, to Iyi Enu Mission Hospital, Ogidi, for medical attention, where he was certified dead by a medical doctor. The corpse was deposited at the hospitalâs mortuary for an autopsy.
âA careful observation of the deceasedâs body revealed stab wounds on his chest, while a bloodstained kitchen knife was recovered as an exhibit at the scene.
âPreliminary investigation revealed that the deceased allegedly impregnated the suspect and wanted an abortion, which she declined and demanded some money for her upkeep, which the deceased refused to oblige.
âThat eventually led to a scuffle which resulted in the man being stabbed to death.â
The PPRO said the case was under investigation to unravel other circumstances surrounding the incident.
