A 20-year-old undergraduate of the Federal University of Technology Owerri, Chitere Okoronkwo, has been arrested by men of the Imo state police command for allegedly killing her boyfriend, Johnmark Osigwe.

Okoronkwo was arrested on Monday at Anna-Wire Urratta in Owerri North Local Government Area of the state.

Parading her before newsmen at the command’s headquarters, the state Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galadanchi, said investigations by the police, showed that Chitere and Johnmark were lovers and after they fell out, she allegedly masterminded his killing.

He said; “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,” Galadanchi added.

The police boss, however, said investigations are currently ongoing and the suspect would be charged to court soon.
