A twenty-two year-old Student of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo (RUGIPO) in Ondo State, Chukwudi Oweniwe, has said he can’t explain why he murdered his girlfriend, Miss Nifemi Adeyeye and left her body in the bush.
Chukwudi was alleged to have lured Miss Nifemi into a bush at Ilu-Abo in Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo state early this month and strangled her.
Chukwudi and Nifemi were both Part-Time (PT) three students of Department of Science and Laboratory Technology (SLT) of RUGIPO.
The suspect, who lives in Ayede-Ogbese was said to have invited the deceased to his place from their school and subsequently lured her into a bush in Ilu-Abo and killed her.
Some vital organs were said to be missing from her decomposing body.
Chukwudi speaking with reporters at the Police Command in Akure, where he was paraded, confessed to the crime but denied using the lady for ritual.
He narrated how he killed the lady: “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 and 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 Police in Ayede Ogbese and from there, they transferred me to anti-cultism in Akure”.
When asked why he killed the girl, Chukwudi said he did not know the spirit that came over him and that it was when he killed her that he realised that he has committed a sin.
He said they have been dating since February this year and that she has never cheated on him.
The State Police commissioner, Mrs. Hilda Ibifuro-Harrison said Nifemi’s remains were recovered in the bush by men of the Special Anti-cultism squad.
