A 31-year-old man has been arrested for killing his 49-year-old girlfriend in Nkanu East Local Government Area of Enugu State, Nigeria, according to reports.
The suspect fled the crime scene as he stole her car, mobile phones, and other properties.
“I have used a pestle to perform the dastardly act on that fateful day after she invited me to her house on the day of the incident and she started quarrels with me over his refusal to initiate marriage proposals with her and sundry issues,” according to the suspect.
The elder sister of the deceased reported the matter to the Lugbe Police Division after the caretaker of the house rented by the deceased called to inform her about her absent.
“She also said that it was herself, the police, and some friends of the deceased that forced his house, opened it and recovered her decomposing body wrapped in rug carpet, in the suspect house” the police added.
The suspect was later arrested by the police team.
