Operatives of the Divisional Police Headquarters Orlu, on Thursday, arrested one Emeka Ezuruike, a native of Ubommiri, Emuoba, Rivers State, for killing one Victor Ikegwuonu (25) of Nduichi, Arondizuogu in Imo State.
Police source revealed that Victor Ikegwuonwu was said to have informed one Pa Chijioke Anyiam (52) that his wife Patience Anyiam, 30 years old, was involved in a hot romance with Emeka Ezuruike, an affair which he said had been on for a very long time.
Sequel to that, the source said Emeka went to see Victor to ask him about the allegation.
“During the enquiry, both of them got into a serious fight and in the process Emeka Ezuruike stabbed Victor Ikegwuonu with pieces of broken bottles which led to the death of Victor Ikegwuonu.”
However, the Police spokesman, Orlando Ikeokwu (SP) said the suspect has been arrested and taken into custody while investigation is ongoing.
“He will be charged to court accordingly,” he added.
