A cultist has killed his lover, identified only as Julia, after robbing her of her money at Ogwashi-Uku community, Delta State. He had spent the night at the final year Mathematics and Statistics student’s apartment. He reportedly made off with her ATM card with which he withdrew N145,000 from her account.
Julia had reported the matter to her bank which promised to take appropriate action.
It was after she made the report the suspect allegedly sneaked into her room and killed her with an axe. He was said to have locked the mangled body in the apartment and fled with the keys.
“Not until the next morning when everybody became apprehensive of her whereabouts and we [had] to break her door where we saw her lifeless body with blood stains everywhere in the room.
“Immediately we raised the alarm and everybody in the area rushed down and the matter was reported to the Ogwashi-Uku Police Station,” a source narrated.
A police source at the Ogwashi-Uku station who confirmed the story said that the police and the bank are currently working around the clock to arrest the suspect who is still at large.
The deceased’s body has since been buried at her home town.
