THE Homicide Department of the Nigerian Police Force, Ebonyi State Command, is battling to unravel the circumstances surrounding the murder of a 34-year-old man (names withheld) by unknown men at New Market (Afia Ohu), Umuoghara, Ezza North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.
The deceased, was found lying in the pool of his blood in the early hours of Sunday with his throat slit with a sharp object
Following the incident, the New Market was closed for two days as residents fled for fear of being picked by the police.
Trouble started for the deceased, a petty trader, when he allegedly impregnated a young girl and the girl attempted to abort the pregnancy, which resulted in serious complication.
Wife of the deceased, a patient medicine dealer, who is now on the run was said to have given the young girl some pills to abort the pregnancy. It was gathered that after taking the pills, the girl developed complication.
The girl is receiving treatment at the intensive care unit of the Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki.
It was also not clear whether the wife had a hand in the death of her husband as she has vanished into the thin air moment after the incident.
Though, the police have made some arrest, many people are still pointing accusing fingers at the fleeing wife of the deceased.
All efforts to speak with the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Mr. George Okafor proved abortive as all calls and text messages sent to his mobile phone were not responded to.
