A 28-year-old man, identified as Ahamehule Chukwu, has been arrested by the Rivers State Police Command for the alleged murder of his 21-year-old girlfriend.


The body of the victim identified as Ifeayinwa Ani was discovered in front of the Eliozu Health Centre and reported to the Okporo Divisional Police Station by the Chief Medical Officer of the health centre, Dr. Ama Flag-Amachree, who also revealed to the policemen that she noticed three incisions, possibly made by injection syringes, on the buttocks of the deceased.

The Chief Medical Officer in her reports told the police officers that Ifeayinwa’s body was dumped in front of the health centre by unidentified persons.

The deceased before her death was said to have loved her boyfriend, who is also believed to have murdered her, so much that she moved into his apartment and started living with him even though they were not married.


Investigations carried out by the police revealed that Ahamehule who attended Government Technical College, Port Harcourt and deceased girlfriend were supposedly in a very happy relationship until he noticed she started receiving phone calls from members of the opposite sex which he termed suspicious.

Ahamehule tearfully revealed to the police during questioning that he got so aggravated by the frequent calls from unknown persons, that in anger, he sent Ifeayinwa packing from his family house where she had been living with him since 2012.

The father of the deceased, Godwin Ani, also confirmed to police that his daughter and Ahamehule had been living together before her death even though he never approved of it, his pleas for her to return home had all been disregarded and Ifeayinwa had told him that Ahamehule owed her the sum of N51,000, and vowed not to return to her father until Ahamehule paid his alleged debt.

Officers of the Okporo Divisional Police had gone to Ahamehule’s house to arrest him following Dr. Flag-Amachree’s report and Mr. Ani’s statement, to arrest him, only to find that he had absconded from home. He later showed up at the police station accompanied by his lawyer.

According to the statement tendered by Ahamehule, he last saw the deceased in November last year, adding that he had given her N20,000 which she needed to carry out an abortion.

The Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Tunde Ogunsakin, confirmed that the case has been referred to the State Criminal Investigation Department of the Police Command for further investigation, and that Ahamehule will be charged to court if found guilty.
