How I Killed My Girlfriend – Chukwudi Oweniwe confesses

Lack of conscience. This 22-year-old student of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic in Ondo State, Chukwudi Oweniwe has been arrested for allegedly killing his girlfriend, Nifemi Adeyeye in a bush at Ilu-Abo, in Akure North area of Ondo State early this month.

Chukwudi and late Nifemi were both part-time students of the department of Science and Laboratory Technology (SLT).

The suspect, who lives in Ayede-Ogbese was said to have invited Nifemi to his place from school and subsequently lured her into a bush in Ilu-Abo and killed her.

He was alleged to have performed some ritual activities on his late girlfriend.

When Chukwudi was speaking with reporters at the police command in Akure, when he was paraded, he 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; I 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 his girlfriend, Chukwudi said he did not know the spirit that came on him and that it was when he killed her that he realised that he had committed a sin.

He also denied being a cultist. He said they had been dating since February this year and that she had never cheated on her.

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.

CP Harrison said the police were still investigating the matter to unravel the suspect’s action.

    That's callous!

  3. Girls cn be foolish at time, wat re u going inside a bush to do? Picnic?

  4. OMG! This guy deserve death by firing squad

  5. Igbo and Yoruba people are the ones doing money rituals nowadays. In the days of yore, Hausa men were known for snake charms that killed girls for money rituals.

  6. Wickedness of the highest order. People in r/ships should be really careful and observant.

  7. a criminal is always a criminal.from this story; he killed her twice:the first and the second day when he realized she did not die, he completed the killing by smashing her with a stone!the question is: when did he realized that he has committed a sin?because he took a machine man to go complete the job the second day.it means all through the hours and night of the first day, the spirit did not appeal to him.police and the law are sometimes slow and that is why people at times take laws into their hands to do jungle justice on murderers like this.

  8. Hmm, strange happenings lateli, he won't admit wanting 2 use her..
