Nigerian Woman Killed By Roommate In Columbus Indiana: Adaobi M Obih Murdered

nigerian woman murdered by roommate

Nov 21, 2013 – Nigerian Lady Murdered By Neighbour In Columbus Indiana: Adaobi Michaella Obih Killed By Ryan Allen Klug

Police in Columbus Indiana are still trying to unravel the mystery behind the murder of a Nigerian woman identified as Adaobi Michaella Obih.

The 26-year-old lady was found with throat slit and multiple knife wounds on Tuesday the 19th of November 2013 at her apartment in Columbus Indiana.

The person of interest in Adaobi’s murder is her neighbour, a 36-year-old man named Ryan Allen Klug.

Since Adaobi’s murder, Ryan has disappeared into thin air.

Police officials are currently treating Adaobi’s death as homicide.

According to sources, the victim was a PHD student and the first born of her family.

Ryan A. Klug, 36, of 3461 Limestone Lane, Apt. 2134, is the prime suspect in the death of his roommate, Adaobi M. Obih, who suffered multiple knife wounds, according to a probable-cause affidavit.

Obih’s boyfriend, Jude Osara, last communicated with her on Sunday afternoon, and then was unable to get text-message replies after that time, the affidavit said.

The woman’s throat was cut, the charging document said, and blood-saturated clothes the same size as Klug wears were found in their two-bedroom apartment.

A warrant for Klug’s arrest was signed earlier today, and Columbus police have reason to believe he may be in Ohio.

What a wicked world!

May her soul rest in perfect peace.

Here is a beautiful tribute written for late Adaobi by her sister’s friend

I never knew you, never met you, never even spoke to you. However, I knew something of you. My friend Alexis always spoke of you. I have known Alexis for over 6 years close to 7 really and all she ever did was talk about her amazing sister- Adaobi. It was obvious she loved you and shared a strong bond with you. It was always her sister this and that. It was impossible to know Alexis without knowing about her sister.  You were definitely a huge part of her life and her joy. she always talked with excitement about anything happening in your life. she was always proud of you and eager to show you off. I never had to meet you to know that you were an amazing elder sister to my friend and daughter to your parents. I never had to meet you to know that know that you were an inspiration to your sister. When she shared the happiness you brought her with us, you indirectly brought happiness to us. You were a true blessing indeed. Your life was not in vain for you brought smiles and joy (directly and indirectly) to the hearts of many. 

Words will never be enough to explain how much you will be missed. I share my friend’s grief at your death. However, the life you lived will be celebrated and the memories you left behind forever cherished! 

Adieu Adaobi 

REST IN PEACE! 

ADAOBI MICHAELLA OBIH

  1. This is very sad what did she do to deserve throat slit
    Some people are just so wicked.
    I think this is hate crime

    Rip adaobi

  2. Terible and tragic
    some whi** people are demon in human form

    So what did Adaobi did to this animal
    Justice must prevail

  3. This is a close family you need to see how tears ran down everybody’s eyes yesterday even the priest who came to pray for the family what a wicked world

  4. 70 percent of Americans are on drugs, better not to friend them, because when the demons behind the drugs will attack them,the nearest person to them becomes their victim.that is why you hear everytime mother killed four of her kids,father killed two of his kids, son killed his father and mother. if you are there for school please do not greet them, go to your class and back to your house.

    • You sound so foolish. Many other countries suffer from drug problems and other issues that lead to violence. I’m sure Nigeria is plagued with it’s on level of violence, corruption, and the like. Refusing to greet outsiders or going straight to class will not change anything or lower your chances of falling a victim to evil people with evil intentions. Evil is everywhere, not only in America. It lives in the heart of men, not in countries.

      May her soul rest in eternal peace!

    • I know so much about the family background of this girl,they are a wonderful family and the mother and father cannot stop crying, even on the phone. in fact we are related. I could not stop crying when i heard this news. I wonder why this happenned to a brain winner like her, she is the first issues of her mom. May her soul rest in peace.

  5. WE THE NIGERIAN , WE ALWAYS THINK THAT WE ARE SAVED IN ANOTHER COUNTRY, BECAUSE WE LOOKED AT OUT COUNTRY AS EVIL , IN WHICH WE TRAVEL HERE AND THERE.

    PLEASE , PEOPLE NEED TO BE CAREFUL WHERE THEY TRAVEL TO , BECAUSE SOME OF THESE SO CALLED LAND OF THE OPPORTUNITY ARE A PLACE. WHERE THE CRIMINALS ARE BASED, , THE RAPIST , THE MURDERERS, AND THEY ARE FULL OF VOODOO CULT, IN FACT , IT IS A LAND OF VAMPIRE SUCKING BLOOD .

    THE AFRICAN SHOULD MIND THEMSELVES FROM THESE SO CALLED OYINBO COUNTRIES,

    I KNOW THAT IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO KEEP AWAY , BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN BRAINWASHED THAT THE OYINBO PEOPLE ARE SAINT , THEY DO NO EVIL,

    BUT, I WOULD LIKE TO TELL YOU THAT, THEY ARE THE MOST GREATEST LIARS AND CONNIVING LITTLE ASS,

    WE NEED NOT TO FORGET HOW THEY ENSLAVE US FOR SIX HUNDRED YEARS, DURING THOSE YEARS, THEY BRUTALLY RAPE AND DUMP PEOPLE IN THE OCEAN ALIVE , AFTER RAPING THEM, AND STARVED THEM. AND THEY ALSO USED THEM FOR EXPERIMENT IN THE LABORATORY.

    IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SINNER/ ELESE, THEY ARE THE SINNERS , THE SLAVE ,MASTERS ARE THE TERRORS AND SINNERS.

    • Mrs Eranko, we should thank God Adaobi die in a country where justices system work, where autopsy work, where police system work, our country Nigeria where nothing work, my brother was killed in port harcourt in 2003 by a medical doctor, who adminster wrong injection on him, my brother had fever but was given injection that was meant for a guy that was mad and it gave him heart attack, as I talk to you today the doctor still operate and the hospital still operate, what about Aluu 4? That happened in port harcourt 2years ago, almost all the people involved have all be released. Sure Adaobi will get justices. May her soul rest in peace

      • MAY I KNOW IF THIS JUSTICE WORK AFRICANS OVER THERE ? WHERE ARE THEY WHEN THIS MAN WAS KILLING THIS GIRL ,

        AND MAY I KNOW WHY THIS SO CALLED JUSTICE ,ALLOWED HIS PEOPLE TO DEAL WITH DEADLY DRUGS OD ALL SORT ,

        BECAUSE COLOMBIA WAS A DEADLY DANGEROUS COUNTRY THAT HAS A LOT OF DEADLY CRIMINALS , IN TIME OF DRUG DEALING ,

        THE SAME THING WITH MEXICO , THESE TWO COUNTRIES ARE MORE DANGEROUS THAN NIGERIA. READ YOUR INTERNET , THEIR HISTORY WAS THERE FOR YOU TO KNOW BETTER.

        THE AFRICAN HAS NO CHANCE IN ANY OF THESE SO CALLED COUNTRIES, THEIR SYSTEM IS ONLY FOR THEIR OWN PEOPLE .

        THEY WILL SOON RELEASE THE PERSON , AND THEY KNOW WHERE HE WAS HIDING . THEY ARE ALL RACIST.

        • Shut your stinking mouth animal,a young innocent lady has just been brutally murdered and all u could say is y did she travel abroad ? I hope you know what your name mean in yoruba, Eranko means animal and thats exactly what you are oloshi jatijati !!

          • Stop the tribal hatred, this young lady was killed and all you can do is resort to name calling and insults about our tribal differences? No wonder we will never advance as a people because we have let our differences divide us.

    • You need to stop this lame blaming of people who traveled outside the country of Nigeria to look for greener pastures!Since the beginning of civilization people leave home for so many reasons to find progress. My father sent me to America in the 70’s to come get a good education, and I graduated from an all White University and have lived in America since then after I visited Nigeria briefly, and saw the degradation.
      Your talk borders on jealousy and envy against all travelers. If you can, I know you would travel too! There is nothing wrong with travelling. All people do not have the same fate.(Chi awu otu) So give this whole thing of people left cause they thought their country was no good. In reality, Nigeria and the present state of affairs is deplorable!

    • Mrs. Ohio (aka Mrs. ERANKO) you are entitled to your own views but I strongly disagree with them.
      First, there is nothing wrong with going overseas for higher education. More Americans study overseas than any other country…they have the Study Abroad program where over twenty thousand students take part every year. Most spend up to a year overseas. Studying in a different country is a good thing.
      Second, there are crimes everywhere. Nigeria has it’s own share of terrible crimes too. You cannot pretend that university students in Nigeria are not sometimes victims of crimes. USA also have criminals among the population. The difference is that when a crime is committed in USA, the police go after the criminal. In most cases the criminal is caught and tried in a Court of Law.I will choose the American Justice System to that of Nigeria any day.

  6. It is not easy in this life someone you saw today you may not see tomorrow. That’s why I like this song” THANK YOU JESUS, THANK YOU MY LORD, WHAT EVER I AM NOW IT IS BY UR GRACE, MANY ARE DIEING OTHER ARE PERISHING, WHAT EVER I AM NOW IT IS BY UR GRACE. SHE IS JUST MY MATE.RIP ADAOBI

  7. the white guy is a racist maybe he has been toasting the chic but the chic no gree i guess thats the reason why he killed her poor girl adaobi may ur gentle soul rest in peace my dear (tears about u)

  8. This is the difference between white man and black man. Black people kill because of poverty which is bad,But white people kill for very simple and stupid reason. RIP.

  9. My luvly God 6ta I never met lukin @ ur pix nw makes me hrt bleed I wish I 2 c u b4 u leave dis world

  10. My luvly 6ta I never met it painz me a lot dat I never had d chance 2 meet u.I luv u bt God luvz u more,rest in d best part of d Lord s bosom

  11. The mother was my biology teacher in my secondary school.she was a great brain and kindhearted woman.I am really sad About this sad and ugly event.its So saaaAd.

  12. Am rily short of word…after going thro primary, secondary educations now Ph.d the enemy came and did dis evil…God must fight for her..whosoever has done dis will die a misterious death…Adaobi, i av not seen u before but tears re just rolling down my eyes..

  13. As a member of the community in which this crime occurred, I am terrified that such things could happen at all, and especially in my community, and particularly in one of the best neighborhoods in town. I am very saddened by the loss of such a promising young woman, and I feel great sympathy for her family.

    Also, as an American college student (who also happens to be white), I would like to address a few of the comments that others have left on this feed.

    1) Was this a hate crime? It’s possible, but not likely. Columbus is a very welcoming community and a place where black people are more likely to be presumed to be good at sports than to be hated. Even of the few that do harbor negative feelings for other races, I sincerely doubt any of them would kill over it. Unfortunately, about 1% of the population is psychopathic, and many of these people walk among us. It is much more likely that the individual who killed her was psychopathic and killed for no reason.

    2) Most Americans do not use drugs. I don’t; my friends don’t. I have known some people that did, but drug use is highly stigmatized in our culture, and people who use drugs are commonly thought of as filthy, useless individuals.

    3) I know that for many years, black people were enslaved in my country by white people. I would like to offer my sincere personal apologies for this and assure you that black people are thought of much the same as white people or Asian people in this country; as people. As I mentioned earlier, the only real stereotype nowadays is that black people are good at sports.

    4) I would like to assure you that the justice system works particularly well in this part of the country, particularly for matters such as this that genuinely frighten the community. Police in different states work together to capture criminals such as this and place travel restrictions preventing him from crossing the border into another country. As an example of our justice system working for people of other races, my campus was recently put on lockdown after the stabbing of an Asian man. The criminal involved was found and put in jail, where he remains awaiting his trial, and I have no doubt he will be found guilty.

    Again, those of us who live in this community are terrified by this event, and it has made my mother even more nervous of me studying in Spain starting in January. Crimes such as this are extremely rare even in the United States. I am from the area and even worked at Cummins (same company this woman worked for), and I assure you that Africans are welcomed and well-accepted in this community. I sincerely hope that you as Nigerians do not think any less of my country, my community, my culture, white people, or myself because of this event. I assure you that this criminal will be caught, and I sincerely doubt that he will ever leave prison after that.

    My sincerest condolences for the family and the community in Nigeria.

  14. Miss Elise message above is a pretty good representation of the Columbus community and how the American Justice system works. Roommate’s murder is a very uncommon crime in this community. They have captured the main suspect. The court will now try him and he will be convicted if found guilty. He will face a very long sentence if found guilty.
    The information we have about the case suggest that the victim did not know the suspect well before allowing him to be her roommate. The lesson here is that we need to pick our roommates carefully.
    The victim made a mistake in her choice of roommate but we cannot fault her for that. She does not deserve what happened to her. I pray she gets justice.

  15. i still can’t believe dis..Adaobi was my very gud friend. we belong to a society in the church called CYON( Catholic youth organization of Nigeria). we read together at the alter, either she takes d first reading while I take d second reading. on Sundays am alwaz at their place waiting to eat delicious food. this was how we were living until she traveled to d US. I never knew dat dat was d last dat I will ever see my amiable, gentle and easy going friend. I wonder how her mummy is going to cope. Adaobi rest in peace. u remain unforgettable.
