The police spokesperson, Haruna Mohammed, said the police received a distress call at about 8:30 am on Thursday, March 26, about an unusual odour coming out from Atansi’s room and when they got to his apartment they spotted a decomposing body of a woman, who was later identified as 31-year-old Uchechi Atansi.

According to the report, the body of the deceased had marks of violence and blood spilt all over the room which was admitted as evidence when detectives analyzed the scene.
Haruna said;

“Surprisingly, however, the deceased husband one Mr Ikechukwu Atansi aged 49 years of Umudum village in Isuanochia was right inside the room with the deceased when the door was opened and could not give a satisfactory account of what actually transpired.

Instead, the husband claimed that he was injected with a substance by unknown persons who must have killed his wife. The husband was subsequently arrested and he is assisting the Police with useful information to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident.”

Upon being interrogated, the suspect who lives in Umueze Village in Amawbia community claimed he slept for three days without knowing what happened to him. ..

According to him, it was during that time some unknown persons came in and killed his wife. Atansi also gave an excuse for not communicating with anyone at that time because his phone’s battery was dead.
