The incident happened last Sunday at the live-in-lovers apartment in Egbeda when the suspect identified as Daniel Chukwudiebele Okocha refused to let the deceased, Nkechi,  go to church last Sunday.

When the deceased insisted, a quarrel ensued, which degenerated into a fight during which Daniel allegedly stabbed her with a knife in the neck and fled. He was subsequently arrested.

According to a police officer, the suspect confessed to his crime and told them how he killed her and the reason was that she was cheating on him.

He told them on that fateful day, Nkechi had told him that she was going to church but he warned her to sit down at home as he suspected that she was having an appointment with another man who attends the same church with her.

He said when Nkechi refused to obey him and insisted that she was going to the church, he picked a fight with her and stabbed her several times.

The message he typed in the deceased’s phone showed that he had the intention of killing her all along which as it showed clearly that he killed her and watched her for 45 minutes to see her die.

He went further to say:

‘I gave her life, but she refused to give me back’.

The irony of the whole thing is that the two of them are from the same town, Ubulu-Uku in Delta State.

The two had one child, but they were not legally married.

According to sources, the suspect was so possessive and jealous that at one time, he attempted to kill himself by drinking a poisonous substance, Snipper. It was the deceased that rushed him to the hospital where he was revived.
