A 26-year-old, Shagbada Erigga has been captured by police in Oyo for purportedly executing his better half, Happiness Winifred, 30, for declining to have intercourse with him.
He was marched today June 30 by the Oyo state Commissioner of Police, CP. Chuks Enwonwu, who said that the speculated killer, Erigga welcomed Happiness, a mother of three, to his home to go through the night with him on June 21. They got into a warmed contention after she wouldn’t engage in sexual relations with him.
He punched her multiple times. She drooped and kicked the bucket and afterward he dumped her body inside a well in the Ojoo territory of Ibadan, Oyo State capital.
The police manager said men of the Ojoo Police Station started an examination after one Mr. Agu Benson, an inhabitant of Oritoke Area of Ojoo, Ibadan went to the police headquarters to report that he went to get water in the well in his compound on June 25 and found a gliding body.
When investigated, Shagbada admitted to the wrongdoing however said he “incidentally” murdered Happiness.
“On that faithful day of the incident, we were showering together and I asked her the reason she has been denying me of sex 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 neighbor 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
Things recuperated from him include one purse, one Android Phone, a couple of clothing, a pack of condoms, a key, and shoes.
