Homicide detectives attached to the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigations Department (SCIID), Panti, Yaba, Lagos State are investigating the circumstances behind an alleged killing and dumping of the body of a widow by the side of the road at Igando by her lover.
The suspect, one Clement Ejindo, a dealer in cosmetics and provisions, was arrested when a video of him and the deceased identified as Promise Abor went viral on social media.
The Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, had then ordered a full investigation. Upon the directives, detectives from Igando police station were able to track a mechanic friend of the suspect, who led policemen to his hideout. The police said the deceased children had led the police to the mechanic on the ground that it was he who brought the suspect’s car key to their house.
The deceased, a widow, started dating the suspect four years after the demise of her husband. It was learned that the suspect had allegedly poisoned the deceased when they went out on that fateful day, removed her pants and bra and dumped her by the roadside after he had picked up the deceased from her house at Igando, an allegation Clement swiftly denied.
