July 25, 2014 – Mother Of 4 Murdered By Boyfriend At Green Estate In Amuwo Odofin Lagos, Suspect Flees To Ghana
A 39-year-old businesswoman has been murdered by her lover, who also carted away her money, ATM cards, jewellery and a Range Rover Sport. She was found dead at her apartment on the Odusanya Oduguwa Crescent, Green Estate, Amuwo Odofin Area of Lagos State on Saturday morning.
According to the police, Lizzy, an executive in a networking firm, had four children from a previous marriage which had broken down and was planning to travel to the United States on Thursday (today) when she was strangled by the suspect.
“She was into networking and owned houses in different parts of Lagos. She was an international businesswoman and travelled round the world. She had said she would be traveling to the US this week and had gone to the bank with her boyfriend to withdraw N4m. When they both got to her house, the man tied her hands and strangled her. He took the money and went away in the car.
“She was initially married and even had four children. We learnt that her husband impregnated their maid and she said she could not live with the shame. She separated from the man. Since then, she had had several boyfriends who promised her marriage but only duped her. She even had one of them arrested. This last one that killed her, they had been dating for three months. The woman fell into this because she always opened up to those close to her.” the police revealed.
Although the suspect is on the run, the Police Public Relations officer, Lagos State Command, Ngozi Braide confirmed the incident saying the police had begun investigations,
“Yes, the incident happened. She was murdered in her house on Saturday morning and investigations have begun to unravel the cause of her death. He ran to Ghana with the woman’s Range Rover Sport and money. But he has no hiding place under the law. He will be arrested. You can’t kill a human being without expecting retribution.”
