Police are looking to arrest a man on a charge of murder after allegedly killing his girlfriend because she rejected his marriage proposal, police in Nigeria said.
Imo State police said that 22-year-old Onyinyechi Okegbulam, was shot in the head by her boyfriend, who paid her college tuition.
According to the police investigation, the suspect came over to Okegbulam’s apartment around 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, and lured out to the street.
As soon as Okegbulam approached the suspect, he shot her in the head. The young man then tried to stuff Okegbulam’s body in his car, but when a woman began screaming, he fled from the scene.
The suspect was angry that Okegbulam rejected his marriage proposal and decided to marry another man. The suspect felt that Okegbulam had an obligation to accept his marriage proposal because he paid her college tuition.
Police are looking to arrest the suspect, but so far, he remains on the run.
