She PROMISED Us 500K To Eliminate Her Husband === Suspect


Physinews:: A plumber, Bright Ikechukwu has narrated how
a 41-year-old woman, Mrs. Chika Orji
contracted them to kill her estranged husband.
Ikechukwu who came to Lagos from Delta state
for the job, said they were offered drinks and
Kola nuts and promised N500,000 to kill the
man.


The suspect who was arrested while trying to
steal from the apartment, said they (he and two
others) went to the man’s house at Jakande
Estate, Ajah Lagos Nigeria, on four occasions but didn’t
succeed in stabbing him as they planned to do.

He said: “I live in Ogwushi -Ukwu, Delta state.
My friend, Ekene, called me on the phone to
inform me that he has a job for me. This was
three weeks ago. I hurriedly came to Lagos and
stayed with him in Ajah, I met another of his
friend, Samuel. He told us that Madam Chika
promised him N500,000(N= Naira Nigeria Currency) to kill her husband.
Thereafter, he told Samuel to take me to Mr
Orji’s house, so as to be able to identify the
target.

“We went there and hid inside a tricycle,
waiting for Mr. orji, whom we were told always
opened his gate himself whenever he returned
home. But on that day, it was his daughter that
opened the gate. We went back the next day, it
was his daughter that opened the gate again.

“By the time we went the third day, it was Mr.
Orji that opened the gate himself. The plan was
to rush to him and stab him eight times in the
chest, rib and neck. But Samuel, who was
supposed to stab him went to buy cigarette
and by the time he came back, our target had
gone inside and shut the gate.

“Out of frustration, I went back home and told
Ekene to give me my own share of the money
that I was going home. But he said that madam
Chika would only pay after the deed was done.

“I decided to go into Mr. Orji’s apartment to
steal instead, in order to get some money to go
back to Delta state. But as I was trying to jump
through the fence, somebody raised alarm and I
was arrested by vigilantes. I was tied with a
wire and beaten without mercy. I had to open
up when they almost killed me.”

However, the woman denied the allegation,
claiming she only asked them to beat him up
for denying her access to their children and
selling their property without giving her share of
the money.

She said: “We got married 14 years ago and
have three daughters and a son. All of a
sudden, my husband suddenly became a wife
beater. He would beat me and leave me with
swollen face. He threatened to kill me. It
continued until three years ago, when he finally
chased me out of the house and denied me
access to my children.

“I made several efforts to get my children back,
part of which was to report him to human rights
offices for settlement but he did not honour any
of the invitations. Both families have made
attempts to settle us but he would not listen.

“He was served with a court warrant over the
issue but he also refused to show up. Along the
line, he sold the house we both built, for N85
million but never gave me any dime. He also
stopped my children from visiting me and any
attempt to see them always resulted in beating.

“Out of frustration, I told Ekene, our carpenter,
to beat him up, so as to teach him a lesson. I
did not hire anyone to kill him. I am a frustrated
woman and I am sorry for everything.”
