A Nigerian man, identified as Anthony I, is on trial in Muenster, Germany for stabbing and killing his girlfriend.
Anthony I who sought asylum in Germany and claimed to be gay and had fought against the Boko Haram terror group murdered his girlfriend Soopika Paramanathan, 22, earlier this year, after she broke off their relationship.
The accused refused to speak at the first day of his trial yesterday.
Persecutors says “Anthony I, 28, brutally murdered Soopika out of jealousy, he allegedly stabbed her repeatedly in her head, neck and breast with a long-bladed knife,” Daily Mail reported.
She tried defending herself with a pepper spray which she aimed at her attacker’s eye.
Police chief, Harbert Mengelkamp quickly focused on Anthony I, whose asylum application was in the process of being rejected by authorities.
He tried to stuff her body into a blue suitcase at the crime scene but fled when passers-by saw him.
He was caught two days later by police at Basel railway station after he fled to Switzerland.
