Ajemine Inedugoba, a 41-year-old mother of four and a staff of the Rivers State Primary Health Care, has revealed revealed why she killed her 40-year-old husband, Tyger, in Abalama, Rivers State.
The suspect confessed that she killed Tyger and buried his corpse in a shallow grave within the area because he abandoned her to go and live with another woman.
Ajemine said she contracted two men to kill the victim on January 25, 2019, because he routinely beat and raped her whenever he pressed for sex.
A source revealed that Tyger, before his death, had a misunderstanding with Ajemine, a situation which made him to move out of his home, but they later reconciled.
However, soon after the reconciliation, the wife made arrangements with two persons to attack and kill her husband in their Abalama residence. The victim was sleeping when his assailants went into his house and strangled him to death.
They then took his corpse to the back of the house and dug a shallow grave where they buried his remains. After Ajemine had finished killing and burying her husband, she took his car to a nearby market and parked it where it could be recovered by the police.
She also took his mobile phones and sent text messages to her husband’s brothers informing them that Tyger was traveling out of the state on a business trip.
After thorough investigation, Ajemine was arrested alongside one of her accomplices, Kingsley Nna, and the duo led the police to the spot where the body of the victim was buried.
In his confession, Kingsley Nnaa said Ajemine paid him and his friend the sum of N100,000 to kill her husband and that he also had sex with her severally.
Nna said: “She told us that her husband was maltreating her. The day after we killed her husband, she called me and said she wanted me to make love to her and when I met her in a hotel we made love for two hours.
One week later, we met again in that same hotel in Egelu Town and we made love again. We also made love for the third time, but I stopped responding to her calls because she wanted to turn me to her husband.”
