Chukwudi Oweniwe, a student of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo (RUGIPO), Ondo State, has been arrested for allegedly killing his girlfriend, Nifemi Adeyeye, in a bush at Ilu-Abo, Akure, earlier this month, Daily Post reports.
They're both Part-Time students of the department of Science and Laboratory Technology (SLT). He was alleged to have performed some ritual activities on her, he has denied that.
Narrating how he killed her, he said: “I invited her from Owo to Akure and after introducing her to my parents, I lured her into a bush and strangled her, leaving her body in the bush.
On the second day, I asked a commercial motorcycle rider to take me to the bush where I left her; I observed that she was not dead and I used a stoned to hit her head and she died immediately.
My parents became curious when they did not see her and I was arrested by the Police." When asked why he killed her girlfriend, he said he did not know the spirit that came on him and that it was after he killed her that he realised that he had committed a sin.
He also denied being a cultist. He said they had been dating since February this year and that she had never cheated on her. The State Police commissioner, Mrs. Hilda Ibifuro-Harrison said the police were still investigating the matter to unravel the reason behind his action.
