The incident reportedly happened at Seashore estate, in the Ajah area of Lagos State and a source stated that the man killed the lady for ritual purposes.
The source said;
“I moved out of the apartment two weeks ago and Njoku moved in. I was told he is the quiet and secretive type. It was the stench from his apartment that forced his neighbors to report to the estate management and the police were invited.
The police detectives arrived at the scene and a decomposing corpse was found. It was learned that he k#lled the girl about six days ago and he confessed that he wanted to use the girl for money rituals. He said he was told by a herbalist that he should have six with his girlfriend’s corpse for seven days, but he was caught on the sixth day— Sunday— and arrested

He was whisked to the Lamgbasa Police Station and during interrogation, he confessed to the crime. He also revealed he brought his girlfriend from the village.”
