The Enugu State Police Command has arrested and charged Chidubem Osuagwu, 22, for allegedly killing 32-year-old Amarachi Chukwu, his “sugar mummy,” and stealing her car.

The command’s spokesperson, Mr. Daniel Ndukwe, revealed this in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria in Enugu on Friday.

According to Ndukwe, on November 8, police detectives assigned to the Enugu State Criminal Investigation Department’s homicide division and police agents from Imo Command arrested Osuagwu within the Nekede axis of Owerri in Imo.

He said that Osuagwu tried to sell the Toyota Corolla that belonged to his older lover, Chukwu, after killing her on Nov. 1 at her home in Meniru, Awkunanaw, in Enugu, the capital city.

“Investigation revealed that the suspect and his cohort at large, had in the morning hours of the mentioned date, conspired and went to the house of the victim, attempted to make away with her Toyota Corolla key, which she resisted.

“And upon her resistance, they tied her hands, legs, and mouth with clothes; locked her inside the house; and made away with the car.

“Her decomposing remains were, however, found in the said apartment on November 4, after the door was forced open by police operatives serving in Ikirike Police Division of the Command following receipt of a report that an offensive odour was oozing out of the apartment.

“The police operatives evacuated the remains to the hospital, where doctors confirmed her dead and the corpse deposited in the mortuary for preservation and autopsy,” he said.

According to the police spokesperson, the suspect has been arraigned in court following the completion of the investigation and is being held in the Enugu Custodial Center for further hearing of the case.
