A female undergraduate of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO), Chitere Okorokwo, has been arrested for killing her boyfriend, Johnmark Osigwe, for allegedly breaking up with her.
The 20-year-old girl who masterminded the killing of Johnmark at Nkwo-Orji on August 8, 2018, also fled to South African with some money the estranged boyfriend had already paid her as compensation which she demanded.
Speaking to newsmen after her arrest, the Imo State Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galadanchi, said the suspect was apprehended by SARS operatives on Monday, at Ama-Wire Urrata in Owerri North LGA of the state.
CP Galadanchi revealed that “When Chitere’s relationship with Johnmark got sour and ended, the girl demanded compensation which 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,” he stated.
Galadanchi said the suspect would be charged to court at the end of investigation.
