A man identified as Ali Muhammed Wakil has reportedly killed his girlfriend, Patience Amos Ya’u.
The deceased who was a fresh recruit into the Nigerian Army, was found dead in the room of her boyfriend in Damilu, a community in Jimeta, Yola North local government area of Adamawa State.
The 23-year-old Amos is believed to have died following a scuffle between her and her boyfriend whose claim to being a military personnel is being doubted.
Bittertruth Media reports that the girlfriend who was gathered to have died as far back as January 12, was confirmed dead several days later when smell from her decomposing body alerted neighbours.
Patience was newly recruited into the Nigerian Army with her peers already training at the Military Training Deport in Zaria two days after her death.
But the boyfriend claims to be a military personnel serving with 68 Reference Hospital Yaba, Lagos.
Neighbours said they had heard voices of Patience and Ali Wakil in his room but did not know that anything grievous was happening.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Suleiman Nguroje, who confirmed the killing of Patience said the suspect had since been arrested and interrogated by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
