A 31yrs old Nigerian man, Ekanem Ikot, has allegedly killed his 27-year-old girlfriend, Edith Owei from the Ika North area of Delta State in a hotel room for allegedly infecting him with gonorrhea.
The boyfriend fled the hotel after the incident on Monday, leaving the lady’s lifeless body on the ground, even as sources said he and the victim were in a serious relationship for about six months.
An insider said the boyfriend lured her to Minna in Niger State after she had lied to her parents that she was going to Ambrose Alli University in Ekpoma, Edo State, to collect her NYSC call-up letter.
It was further gathered that after the family members had waited for days to no avail and without hearing from her, they were said to have called her mobile telephone number several times without any answer; a development that overwhelmed them with suspicion.
Surprisingly, the boyfriend, after some days, sent a text message to the elder sister, one Felicia, informing her of the death of the sister in a hotel room in Minna as well as allegedly claiming responsibility.
Felicia, who narrated the incident to Southern City News, said:
Police and one of her uncles traveled to Minna, where they identified her corpse and brought it to Asaba.
Sources said the guy killed her after he noticed gonorrhea symptoms after he made love to her.
– Where is the said boyfriend now? Police are searching.
