Married Father Of 5 Beats Girlfriend To Death On Her Birthday, Over Infidelity (Photo)

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a 45-year-old father of five, who allegedly beat his girlfriend to death over suspected infidelity, on the deceased’s birthday, July 28.

It was gathered that the deceased, identified simply as Happiness, visited her lover’s home at 5/7 Michael Osisipi Street, off Banjo Oyewele Street, Ago Palace Way, from where they went to a club around the area to celebrate her birthday.

 

Trouble, as gathered, started after the suspect, Victor Umeh, sighted Happiness discussing with a man, discovered to be her former boyfriend. The discussion, according to Umeh, a trader at Ladipo Market, lasted over 15 minutes.

He reportedly left the club in anger, leaving the deceased behind. Time was 12.45a.m. On realising that Umeh had left, Happiness went to his house, where an argument that degenerated into a fight ensued.

Her shout for help alerted neighbours. On reaching Umeh’s flat, he was reportedly seen trying to hide a substance, which turned out to be late Happiness’ mobile telephone.

The curious neighbours were said to have searched the flat for the victim, only to discover her lifeless body behind Umeh’s window. Policemen at Ago Division were immediately contacted and Umeh was arrested..

Investigation revealed that the incident happened during the period Umeh’s wife and five children travelled to his village in Anambra State.
