The Ilemba Hausa Division of the Lagos State Police Command has arrested fleeing Stephen Uwa, who allegedly dumped the corpse of his lover, a single mother of five, at her apartment in Imuda, Ajagbandi area of Lagos, last Thursday.
However, Uwa told the police that when he brought the woman home, she was alive but unconscious.
It was said that the deceased, Joy Vincent, aged 45, had been going out with the suspect for long, without any of her five children and relatives knowing where her lover lives.
Tension set in last Thursday after one of her children returned from school to meet his mother’s lifeless body on the couch, in their one room apartment located on Oshja Arigba Street.
Stephen, declared wanted by the Police, was arrested two days later.
