Police arrest married woman after her policeman friend died in her room


Police operatives from Akinpelu Division have arrested a woman, Mrs. Chinaza Eboh, over the death of a Police Inspector identified as Anthony, during a suspected sexual romp in her room at th Oshodi area of Lagos.

The late Inspector reportedly sneaked into Mrs. Eboh’s apartment when she returned from the market and they were all alone in the house before he became unconscious and was subsequently rushed to an undisclosed hospital, where the Doctor merely confirmed him dead.

The matter was reported to the Police and Mrs. Eboh was immediately arrested over suspicion that she may have caused his death.

Mrs. Eboh reportedly said she met the deceased when he assisted her in a matter at the Police Station and they became close.

Mrs. Eboh was quoted as saying the deceased called her on the day the incident happened that he was at Oshodi and he would like to see her but she declined because she was busy inside the Arena Military Market at Oshodi.

However, when she got home at Akinpelu Street, Oshodi, the deceased showed up in her apartment and she offered him a seat. She said she observed that he was sweating profusely and all of a sudden he became very restless and started shaking. She then had to raise alarm, which attracted her neighbours; they assisted her to move him to a private hospital unfortunately the officer passed on.

The corpse was then moved to Akinpelu Police Station enroute the mortuary.

It was gathered that when Mrs. Eboh’s husband decided to relocate to the village, she refused to follow him and since then has been living alone with her children.

When our correspondent visited Akinpelu Police Station, Mrs. Eboh was still in custody while the autopsy report is being awaited. Members of the deceased family were seen at the Station saying they want to take him for burial.

However, according to a Police source, the matter will likely be transferred to SCIID, Panti, Yaba, for further investigation.
