A man is dead after his lover beat him over a $300 debt, police in Nigeria said.

Ebonyi State Police said that they arrested 50-year-old Uzoamaka Dorathy Nworie, after being accused of killing her lover, Duniya Philemon Tabbath, during a fight over the purchase of a Sienna bus.

A spokesperson for the police said that the victim’s body was discovered in a landfill. According to the initial police investigation, the victim arrived at his lover’s home to deliver a Sienna bus after his lover paid N350,000 ($2,100).

The man told the woman that he paid N700,000 for the bus and demanded an additional N350,000. However, the woman said that her business cannot afford such an expensive bus. They both agreed to sell the bus to a third party to cover the original purchase price.

The victim left and managed to sell the vehicle for N50,000 ($300) less than the original purchase price. When the woman found out about it she became furious. She confronted her lover and hit him in the back of his neck until he died.

The woman took the dead body and dumped it at a garbage disposal site.
