Okada Rider commits suicide after killing lover over alleged infidelity

An okada rider, Mr. Friday Njoku, has killed himself after he allegedly murdered his 25-year-old  fiancée, Cynthia Nwofia, over suspicion of infidelity in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State.

The late Nwofia was murdered at her Abakaliki residence around 11.30pm on Wednesday, while the alleged killer, Njoku, committed suicide by drinking poison on Thursday.

Njoku, who hailed from Izzi LGA of the state, had been dating the late Nwofia for two years before the tragedy.

Nwofia’s elder brother, Mr. Mishak Nwofia, claimed that Njoku stabbed his fiancée to death.

He said the family had reported the matter to the police, adding that the remains of his sister had been deposited at the mortuary of the Federal Teaching hospital, Abakaliki, for an autopsy.

He said, “Friday Njoku was to become the husband of my late sister, having made his intention to marry her known. He even brought drinks to my family which was accepted, although both of them have not officially been joined together as husband and wife as the tradition demands.”

Nwofia debunked the allegation of infidelity against his sister.

The Ebonyi State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Lovet Odah, said the police had commenced a full investigation into the matter to unravel the circumstances surrounding the murder of the deceased and the suicide case.
