Jilted Lady hires assassins to kill ex-boyfriend in Edo

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned  – This agelong saying played out recently in Edo state after two captured assassins confessed that an ex-girlfriend of their victim hired them to carry out the dastard act.

The Edo state Police Command arrested the two suspects, who allegedly murdered an Italian-based Nigerian, Mr. Omoruyi Okundolor, in Benin, Edo State.

The suspects revealed that the deceased’s former lover, Mercy, who is now at large, contracted them to assassinate him because he jilted her.

They further confessed that four of them embarked on the mission to eliminate the deceased and named one Moses and Power as members of the gang and that the plot to eliminate the deceased was hatched at a drinking spot at Evbuotubu area of Benin.

They also killed an 18-year-old girl, who recognised one of them, when they went for the mission. The Edo State Police Commissioner, Haliru Gwandu, who paraded the suspects described the killings as wicked and barbaric and vowed to bring to book the female lover and other suspects currently on the run.
