LIB reported that Josephine Cynthia Inalegwu Onche, who was serving at an NSCDC post in the Otukpo, was declared missing a few days to her wedding to fiance, Christopher in December 2019.
Christopher was paraded on Wednesday, June 16, in Abuja alongside 35 other suspects arrested for armed robbery, kidnapping, rape, unlawful possession of prohibited firearms, cattle rustling, receiving of stolen items and car theft.
Briefing newsmen, the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, said late Onche,45, was in a relationship with Christopher, who had professed love and promised to marry her.
“In the course of the relationship, several financial transactions took place and it is believed that Onche had handed over a large chunk of money to her lover,” he stated.
“Between Dec. 19 and 20, 2019, Onche had visited her lover, who lured her to the house of a native doctor in Benue, where she was murdered. Her body was taken to a forest where she was buried in a shallow grave,” he said.
