A 26-year-old man identified as Shagbada Erigga has been arrested by the Oyo state police command for allegedly killing his girlfriend, Happiness Winifred, 30, for refusing to sleep with him.
When interrogated, Shagbada confessed to the crime but said he “accidentally” killed Happiness.
“On that faithful day of the incident, we were showering together and I asked her the reason doesn’t want to sleep with me but she was raising her voice on me and I slapped her and to my surprise, she slapped me back and I gave her just three blows at the mouth and another one on her neck. Next thing I knew, she fell slumped and died.
When I discovered that she has died, I quickly carried her corpse and threw her inside a well in my compound because I was afraid and I didn’t want people to suspect me that I responsible for her death.
But a few days later, her corpse was discovered by my neighbour who wanted to use the well and he reported the case to the police and I was arrested.
I regret my actions. I don’t have intentions to kill her. She used to be my girlfriend. She had told me that she is a runs girl, that she already had three kids and I said no problem, and I promised to take her as my wife before that misunderstanding came up between both of us,” Erigga said
Items recovered from him include one hand bag, one Andriod Phone, a pair of underwear, a pack of condoms, a key, and slippers.
