“She later died and the case was transferred from the Apo Divisional Headquarters to my department at the FCT Command, Garki for further investigation.

”I interviewed the defendant and he wrote his statement , where he admitted to beating the deceased with a plywood.

”Investigations revealed that the deceased and the defendant were in a relationship and living together. He hit the victim with a plywood during an altercation,” Efe said.

He added that the crime scene was visited by the police and exhibits recovered.

He also informed the court that the corpse was deposited at the Asokoro District hospital morgue.

The prosecution counsel tendered the defendant’s statement as an exhibit which was admitted.

Justice Kezziah Ogbonnaya adjourned the matter until July 13 and July 15 for cross-examination.
