Woman arrested for stabbing partner to death over Internet fraud proceeds

Operatives of the Imo State Police Command have arrested a 27-year-old lady, Oluchi Nzemechi, for stabbing her partner, Kelechi Nzemechi, to death over alleged failure to give her a cut of alleged internet fraud proceeds.

The Imo State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Henry Okoye, stated this on Monday while parading the suspect.
He said the suspect, a native of Uzoagba in Ikeduru, Imo State, was arrested after thorough investigation proved that she stabbed her partner to death.

It was alleged that the deceased refused to pay the suspect her cut from an internet fraud deal to the tune of 250 Million Rupiah.

According to the Imo State Police Command “The suspect confessed to the crime, admitting that her lover lured her into internet fraud aka ‘yahoo yahoo’.

“She had a heated argument with him on Thursday for failing to give her a cut of an alleged 250 Million Rupiah they fraudulently obtained from a victim in Indonesia, during which she used a kitchen knife and stabbed him on the upper part of his body.

“The suspect further revealed that in a bid to cover up her criminal acts, she swiftly wrote on a piece of paper; ‘you think you can eat my money and go free, I am baba for the boys, I am coming for your wife and your child including your family’ and placed it on the lifeless body of the victim and ran away from the house.

“She also stated that she has been living with the victim since 2019 and has a child for him.”

The Police noted that efforts are being made to recover the alleged 250 million Rupiah for possible return to the owner.
