A middle-aged man who gave his name as Stephen Luka, has been nabbed for allegedly macheting his pregnant girlfriend’s elder sister to death in Plateau State.
Luka’s girlfriend identified only as Justina was said to have informed him that she was two months pregnant without imagining how deadly the news would eventually turn.
The suspect was paraded by the State Commissioner of Police, Babatunde Ogunyanwo.
According to Ogunyanwo, Justina who lived with Simi at the Bukuru Low-cost Estate, had told her sister identified as Simi Dusu, that Luka was responsible for her pregnancy on the fateful day.
She (the deceased) was said to have taken her younger sister to Luka’s house to possibly confront him and an argument ensued after Luka demanded that she left.
The argument subsequently degenerated into a deadly fight during which Luka allegedly picked a machete and attacked his pregnant girlfriend and while her sister rushed into the room to help her out, Luka overpowered the duo and severely injured them.
It was learnt that neighbours were attracted to the room during the scuffle and they forced the door to rescue the sisters who were barely breathing.
He was forced to take the victims to the nearby Holwshe Medical Centre in the Tundun Wada area of Jos for treatment.
Unfortunately, Simi could not survive the ordeal as she was confirmed dead hours later.
The police commissioner assured that the suspect will be prosecuted in court very soon.
