Suspected assassin kills woman in Abuja Police Estate


The victim’s body smeared with her own blood.

A suspected lone assassin has allegedly killed a middle age woman, in her home, located at Number 5, Road 4, Police Estate, Kurudu, Abuja.

The woman, whose name was not immediately known, is alleged to have been killed by the assailant, who was seen around the woman’s apartment shortly before she was found dead.

A source, who preferred not to be named, said the suspect came to the deceased’s residence on a motorcycle popularly known as “Rubber-Rubber,” parked it in front of the house, moved around the vicinity before entering her apartment.

The source alleged that it was the woman’s husband who discovered the corpse of his wife when he returned home from an outing.

Without raising the alarm, the husband allegedly attempted to take the corpse of the woman away through the back door and warned his children not to tell anyone.

The source said that the security operatives in the Estate, who suspected the husband’s movement, then stopped him and when his car was searched, his wife’s corpse was found in the car.

It was gathered that when he was detained and questioned, he claimed that his wife was butchered by an unknown person.

The matter is said to have been reported at the Kurudu Divisional Police Station, Abuja, while the corpse of the woman has been deposited at the Asokoro General Hospital mortuary.

No fewer than three arrests, including the woman’s husband and a young man who was said to have lived with the couple sometime ago have been made.

Although the Divisional Police Officer, Kurudu Division, had yet to respond to enquiries on the matter before the filing of this report, a senior police officer in the Division confirmed the incident saying that investigation into the matter was ongoing.

He said the police would not rest until the perpetrators of the heinous act were arrested and brought to book.

On the security of the residents of the Estate, the facility is said to be porous as it has no perimeter fencing.
