A policeman whose name was not given and his lover identified as one Ifeoma – a Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) officer – were found dead at the former’s apartment in Ezinifite Okpuno, Awka-South LGA of Anambra. The incident happened on Sunday 7 August 2016. Ifeoma who stays in Lagos with her family, had reportedly told her husband she was attending a vigil before heading to Anambra to chill with her boyfriend.
According to a neighbour who refused to disclose his name:
“The woman spent the night with her police lover until a labourer, who was to work for the policeman, came in the morning and discovered their dead bodies.
“The labourer then rushed out and alerted neighbours.
“The neighbours followed him to confirm the incident, before a relative intervened and locked the gate, preventing people from further going inside the apartment.”
Another source added:
“There was the sound of a small generator throughout the night in his apartment. But at about 4am, it went dead; maybe the fuel got finished.
“The policeman lived on the third floor of the house. As a policeman, he hardly stayed around, but each time he was around, everybody would know, because he would run his generator all through the night. Everybody called him ‘Officer’, but I think he was an inspector.”
