Here's The Girl Whose Body Was Dumped After She Was Killed By Her Boyfriend

Tragedy struck at Ogida quarters in the Ovia South-West Local Government Area of Edo State, when a 19-year-old boy, identified as one Junior Baba, allegedly hacked his girlfriend to death.

The young girl, Matilda Odiri, had had an argument with the suspect over alleged unfaithfulness.

Odiri, 18, was said to have visited Baba’s residence in the area where she intended to pass the night before the argument ensued on July 7.

It was gathered that the teenage girl had accused her boyfriend of allegedly having an affair with another girl, after observing that he kept late nights.

The accusation was said to have angered the suspect, who picked up a kitchen knife and stabbed her in the right side of her chest at about 11pm.

The wound was said to have allegedly caused her to bleed to death.

Southern City News learnt that Baba, realising that his girlfriend was dead, brought out her corpse from his room and dumped it on a street, before fleeing to the Aduwawa area of Benin.

But he was later arrested by some security operatives, after the matter was allegedly reported to the police by his father.

The suspect was later transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department where he was undergoing investigation.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Johnson Kokumo, confirmed the arrest when contacted on Friday.
