The sus­pect, Vic­tor Umeh, may be ar­raigned in court on or be­fore next week Fri­day.

A po­lice source said af­ter killing his girlfriend, Vic­tor started ter­ror­iz­ing the com­plainant, Chuk­wuyenum Osu, who hap­pens to be the de­ceased el­der brother.

The po­lice source re­vealed that Rachael was con­firmed dead af­ter she was taken to a hospi­tal.

A neigh­bour said the sus­pect was fond of beat­ing the de­ceased at the slight­est of provo­ca­tion, and that at­tempt by sym­pa­thiz­ers to me­di­ate was of­ten re­buffed.

Chuk­wuyenum Osu, the de­ceased’s el­der brother, said he in­tended to pur­sue the mat­ter to a log­i­cal con­clu­sion to en­sure jus­tice for his late sis­ter.

La­gos po­lice spokesman, ASP Olarinde Fa­mous-Cole, con­firmed the in­ci­dent.
