Police apprehend a runaway landlord who murdered a married renter after she turned off romantic advances.
A man only known as Alabo was detained on Sunday by the Azikiwe Police Division, Mile 2 Diobu, Port Harcourt City Council of Rivers State, on suspicion of severing his female tenant's throat with a machete after she turned down his advances for love.

After the May 15th incident, Alabo fled the scene and was apprehended by the police after being pursued for several months.

While narrating her trauma, the female tenant, Mrs. Comfort Nwagadi, corroborated the suspect's detention and mentioned that the suspect, Alabo, had ambushed her as soon as she entered the compound on that fateful day.

She claimed that as soon as she stepped foot inside the compound, Alabo attacked her with a machete, slashing her fingers and head.

She added that before leaving that particular night, the landlord had also attacked her husband, who had come to her aid, cutting him multiple times with a machete.

She said that Alabo began pursuing her after she declined his supposed romantic proposal.

She gave the following explanation: "He used cutlass to cut me on that fateful day when my husband and I returned about 8 o'clock at night because he wanted us to have an intimate relationship but I refused.

We were unaware that he was concealed in the passageway with a machete, and as we attempted to break through, he began stabbing us with it. My husband used the machete on him as well when he came to my aid.

Since then, neither of us is able to use our hands correctly. Since the landlord has been taken into custody, I want a court trial to ensure that justice is served. We spent two weeks and three days in the hospital.

The victim asked for justice in this case. It was learned that the husband had machete injuries on his head and hand, while the married woman had cuts on her hands, fingers, and head.

The machete cut has left Mrs. Comfort and her husband without the ability to use two of their fingers.

Remember that the Commissioner of Police ordered the case file to be moved from the Azikiwe Police Division to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID).

When our reporter inquired about the event, SP Grace Iringe Koko, a spokesman for the Rivers State Police Command, has not yet responded.
