The Taraba State Police Command has arrested and paraded a 31-year-old man identified as Munda Bala for killing his girlfriend, Imbajuri Ambisi.
The suspect who confessed to the crime, reportedly conspired with two of other friends to kill his girlfriend who they burnt to ashes before burying her in a bush.
Munda Bala who is a native of Donga Local Government Area of Taraba state, blamed the wicked act on jealousy and hardship. He was paraded alongside some ashes and bones of the deceased.
He told newsmen;
“I fell in love with Imbajuri Ambisi. She became my girlfriend; I got her pregnant and she delivered a baby boy and killed him after seven months.
“This got me angry and I couldn’t tell anyone. My money got finished and she ran away to some wealthy guys who engage in the selling of rosewoods to foreigners.”
“This got me jealous and I met two of my friends who advised me that if I really want my heart to be at rest, I have to kill her, hence our decision to eliminate her.”
David Misal, the Taraba State Police Spokesman, said a manhunt has already been launched to arrest the other fleeing suspects.
