It has been alleged that the bodies of two lovers found in their apartment in Delta State is a case of suspected murder-suicide.
It was earlier reported that the couple, identified as Ufuoma Atidja and Matilda Aghotor, were reportedly found dead in their apartment along NDDC road in Amukpe, Sapele Local Government Area of Delta State.
According to reports, the body of the deceased lovers were discovered on Saturday morning, February 13, after neighbors peeped through the window. The man’s body was allegedly found on the floor and the woman on the bed. Read here.
Reports alleged that the lovers had died from inhaling generator fumes, however, new sources close to the deceased couple revealed to Vanguard that Mathilda poisoned Ufuoma because she found out that another woman was pregnant for him.
“Ufuoma impregnated another woman and when Mathilda found out, she could not hold back. Mathilda is the jealous type. And let me tell you, there are injuries on Ufuoma’s wrist and body. Morever she has repeatedly said she will kill the guy and kill herself if she finds out he is dating another girl. That is what happened,” a source identified as Bobos said.
Another source, who pleaded anonymity, claimed Ufuoma’s relatives and friends had called his line all through Thursday but he didn’t respond to the calls. He also claimed that Malhilda was still alive on Friday morning.
“It was Mathilda who actually opened the door on Friday morning, and came out with her younger one who was living with them. People saw her and I think it was after then that she drank the poison. The story of poisoning by fish or generator fumes is not the truth.”
Unfortunately, autopsy was not carried out on the couple to determine the real cause of death. Reports have it that the couple have been laid to rest.
