One of the residents, narrating the incident to Citi News, said: “The house where the lady was killed was an uncompleted building. I was in my house and I saw Samuel convincing her girlfriend to follow him to the uncompleted house. I later heard the girl screaming, I rushed to the area only to meet the girl in a pool of blood.
“I thought it was a robbery gone bad, but I later found out that it was the lover who had killed the girlfriend. I wanted to arrest him, but no one was ready to assist me. I explained the incident to some community members, who later followed up and arrested the suspect.”
