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.
The ex-girlfriend, identified as Chitere Okoronkwo, 20, was picked up on Monday, in Ama-wire Urrata, by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Imo state police Command.
While confirming the news, the state Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galadanchi, said: “When their relationship got sour and ended, the girl demanded compensation.
According to reports, the deceased after he was threatened multiple times before being assassinated, had paid the sum of N1.8 million for shop rent and also N2 million 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.
