Operatives of Iba Police Station have arrested a 19-year-old man, Ifeanyichukwu, for allegedly setting his 24-year-old girlfriend, Tolani, ablaze because he suspected that she had another lover.

DSP Bala Elkana, Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, said this in a statement released to newsmen on Sunday.

Elkana said the incident took place in Ojo, Lagos, where they both lived in Ifeanyichukwu’s N600,000 per annum apartment.

 “Ifeanyichukwu met the victim on February 28 through a hookup and she moved into his house in March.

“He has been into internet fraud popularly known as ‘Yahoo boys’ for the past three years where he gets the proceeds for renting the apartment.

“They have, since then, co-habit as lovers because her parents live apart,” the Police spokesman said.

He said that Ifeanyichukwu brought Tolani into his house with conditions that she would quit prostitution and stick to him alone.

 

“However, trouble started on Thursday when the victim left home to fix her hair and did not return until the next day.

“She also left the house on Friday under the guise of visiting her father, but ended up seeing another man.

“Ifeanyichukwu got to know on Saturday when she returned by scrolling through her phone and saw her chats, video calls and nude pictures of herself which she sent to her client,” Elkana said.

 

He said that the suspect (Ifeanyichukwu) became angry and used the petrol he kept for his generator to set her ablaze.

“A team of detectives visited the scene and the victim has been taken to General Hospital, Igando, where she was admitted. She, however, died in the early hours of Sunday.

“The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has directed the immediate transfer of the case to Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba.

 

“The suspect confessed to the commission of the crime and will be charged to court for murder,” Elkana said --NAN
