Graphic Photo: Man Murders Austria- based Lover in Edo.

The Edo State Police Command of the Nigeria Police Force has declared a manhunt for a suspected witness of a dastardly murder that was likely committed in the early hours of Christmas Day.
The manhunt followed the arrest by the Ikpoba Hill Police Division of the suspected murderer, Mr. Festus Aimufua, for the wicked murder of one Ms. Rose Aifuwa, a middle- aged Benin woman based in Austria, who had come home in a healthy, hale and hearty condition to celebrate the Christmas and New Year festivities with her family and friends.

Mr. Aimufua, who was said to be a lover of Ms. Aifuwa
before she travelled to Austria, murdered the
deceased and thereafter dumped her corpse on the road
along Upper Mission Street extension around Oando Filling
Station in Benin City in the early hours of Christmas Day.
The gory sight of the woman’s physically assaulted and
mangled body on the tarred road of the highly populated
market street soon attracted a large crowd of onlookers
some of whom would in no time identify her corpse and
family, resulting to the invitation of the police and
eventually, investigation into her sudden death.
In spite of the scanty information surrounding the death, the
state police command soon began to unravel the mystery
surrounding the woman’s death with the arrest of the lover
in connection to the murder.
Saturday Mirror reliably gathered that Mr. Aimufua, the
alleged murderer and lover popularly known as “Two
Million,” might have killed the deceased after she insisted
on collecting a certain amount of money running into
millions of naira, which he allegedly owed her.
Sources said the debt accrued from the unpaid spare parts
the woman supplied the lover boy who owns a spare parts
shop in Benin City.
As at the time of filing this report, the police had already
began its search for an alleged accomplice of the murder,
who witnessed and possibly assisted the prime suspect to
carry out the heinous act.
Saturday Mirror further gathered that the case would be
transferred to the State Crime Investigation Department
(SCID) for a detailed investigation of the murder.
While police investigations continue, family members and
residents of the community have been calling for justice for
the family of the dead since Christmas Day.
