Facts have emerged on how a 20 year old undergraduate of Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Chitere Okoronkwo, allegedly murdered her ex-lover, Johnmark Osigwe, in cold blood after receiving N7m compensation from him.
According to P.M.EXPRESS reports that the late Osigwe, 24, reportedly jilted Chitere for another lady and in order to pacify her, he paid her the money as compensation.
However, the money did not assuage Chitere to change her mind and spare Osigwe as she reportedly arranged with an assassin and Osigwe was murdered.
Chitere was later apprehended by the Police in connection with the death of her ex-boyfriend, Johnmark Osigwe and she is currently undergoing interrogation in Police custody.
This was confirmed by the Commissioner of Police in Imo State, Dasuki Galadanchi, who said investigations by the Police showed that Chitere and Johnmark were lovers and after they fell out she allegedly masterminded his killing and afterwards fled to South Africa.
“When their relationship got sour and ended, the girl demanded compensation. 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. The suspect, Chitere Okoronkwo, has confessed that she told a guy that she wanted the victim dead due to their misunderstanding.”
The Police Boss said investigations are currently going on and that the suspect would be charged to Court soon after the conclusion of the investigations.
The suspect may spend the rest of her life in prison or hanged if she is tried before the Court and found guilty of murder as the Police had alleged and she had confessed to have committed.
