A young lady identified as Joy Okonikhere, has been killed by her lover during a domestic squabble in his apartment.

According to a Facebook user, May Ebute, the incident which has thrown the neighbourhood into confusion, happened in the night only for neighbours to wake up the next morning to meet the corpse of Okonikhere with the boyfriend nowhere to be found.

Ebute said that the suspect was later apprehended after a manhunt and he confessed to killing her but did not intend to.

Read what Ebute wrote on her wall:

“So Joy Okonikhere died last night during a scuffle with her boyfriend. Neighbours woke up to find her dead body and her boyfriend missing.

He was apprehended earlier today and he said, during the scuffle, he just put his hands around her neck to scare her and she stopped breathing.

He said he didn't mean to kill her. How can just putting your hands around someone's neck kill them if not that the person was strangled?


Well, she's dead now and no amount of ' l didn't mean to kill her' will bring her back.

I just spoke with her brother and he confirmed the news. The murderer is presently cooling off in a police cell. I wish I could find the words to express the anger I'm feeling right now.

May the soul of this lady rest in peace.”
