More information about the Anambra-based man who was accused of pushing down his girlfriend from the 5th floor of their apartment in Onitsha has emerged, days after LIB shared the report.
The Nation reported that the man who is suspected to be ritualist was given quit notice from his previous apartment after his first wife died under a mysterious circumstance. A source alleged that he killed his second wife whose bride price he paid in December for ritual purposes, before throwing down her body from the last floor of the five-storey building they lived in.
The eyewitness said;
“Both of them met at the surgical equipment section of the Onitsha Bridgehead market, where the man sells at one of the lines of the surgical section.
“As the relationship continued, he impregnated her but she later suffered miscarriage under mysterious circumstances.
“The man quickly paid her bride price last December after the girl became pregnant again.
“We learnt that he was ejected from where he was formerly living under mysterious circumstances and the same thing has happened again. He is a ritualist.”
A Facebook user however claimed that the murder suspect was reportedly forced to marry the deceased after he impregnated her while working as his salesgirl. He was accused of beating the lady to death and throwing down her corpse into another building.

This is what happened…
The man is from nsukka but lives in Onitsha, he impregnated his sales girl from abia state…the family of the girl forced him to marry her.
So on Wednesday night,after she finished cooking she went down stairs to call him to come eat.
He went up and they started having misunderstanding… The girl is 8mnths pregnant.
He beat her to death and to avoid traces,he threw her body from the 5th floor to another building close to them.
He called his in-laws and told them the girl is missing to cover up.
But he never knew some neighbours overheard them while quarrelling and someone saw when the girl fell .
So they raised alarm….they went upstairs and saw him smoking cigarette.
They have to call the police.
He killed an innocent pregnant wife and threw her down…God go punish him.
The deceased’s cousin, Queen Precious Chiamaka, also shared photos of the couple happy together and wrote:
