MAN STABS PREGNANT WIFE TO DEATH TWO MONTHS AFTER THEIR WEDDING

A new report tells of the gruesome murder of a pregnant lady who hails from a South Eastern state in the country just two months after she got married.

The murder was allegedly committed by her newly wedded husband.

Early this year, January 10th precisely, Rita Onyemauchechukwu Onyebuchi now late and her husband Mr Ikechukwu popularly called “Agbada” and both hailed from Anambra state, sealed their union in holy matrimony.

But what would happen two months and a pregnancy after is what has had people in shock.

The story of Rita’s murder starts when on the 24th of March, 2020 a working day her younger brother, Onyebuchi John Paul, who works in the same company with her, noticed she wasn’t at work, which to him is a rather seldom occurrence.

In light of this, he put a call through to her but got no response.

It was after working hours that he went to her house in Ezimezi village, Amawbia, Anambra state, but on getting there, saw that the door to the house was locked.

He also noticed that his brother-in-law’s car was not parked in the compound.

He then went home and called her husband but his number was switched off.

The next day, his sister still didn’t show up to work and their mother, who is suffering from high blood pressure, was beginning to get worried.

It was on Thursday morning, March 26th that John Paul stopped by his sister’s house on his way to work and saw a crowd, including police officers, gathered in the compound.

He was led into the house where he saw the decomposing body of his sister lying in a pool of her own blood.

John also revealed that his sister’s husband was arrested on the same Thursday, March 26 and was held at Central Police Station Awka.
On Saturday, March 28, he was transferred to the state CID Amaubia, Anambra.

John suspects that his brother-in-law is the culprit of his sister’s murder and seeks justice for her and her unborn child.
