Plans have been concluded by the family of a man, Ifeanyi Sunday, whose lover, Chinyere Ezeala, died in his home at Ejigbo, Lagos State, Southwest, Nigeria after rounds of sex, to marry the deceased as tradition demands in order to be able to bury her.
Families of the deceased and her lover allegedly reached this agreement at the Ejigbo Police Station where the matter was reported so that the criminal case against him can be withdrawn. But the police denied involvement in the arrangement.
A final year student of the Lagos State University, Ojo, Chinyere Ezeala, 27, has been found dead in her boyfriend’s room at Ejigbo, Lagos, southwest Nigeria after a marathon sex.
The police at Ejigbo alleged that the 400-Level student was found dead on Fridayon her lover’s bed at 36, Fayemi Street, Ejigbo, Lagos. She was found wearing a wrapper.
Her boyfriend, Ifeanyi Sunday, who works at the Apapa Wharf allegedly reported her death to the police the following morning and was arrested.
Police sources at the station confirmed that the corpse had been taken to the Isolo General Hospital for autopsy.
“We cannot for now ascertain the cause of death. Until the autopsy report is out, nobody can say categorically what killed her. We have just arrested her boyfriend and investigation is going on. We cannot rely on what people are saying about the cause of death. It is only the autopsy report that can disclose the cause of death,” the investigating police officer said when asked to comment on the insinuations that she died during a marathon sex with her boyfriend.
The family of the deceased are, however, insisting that Ifeanyi must marry the deceased according to IGBO Tradition and perform the necessary rites. They claimed that she died while he was having sex with her. They also accused the suspect of sleeping with her without paying her bride price to the family.
“He should marry her now that she is dead as tradition demands,” a man who identified himself as an uncle to the deceased told the police.
We also gathered at the residence of the suspect that the Late Chinyere was a regular visitor to Ifeanyi’s home every weekend to spend days before leaving for school.
On the day of the incident, a neighbour who identified herself as Rose told said Chinyere visited and slept with Ifeanyi and was found dead the next day. “Ifeanyi went to the police station and reported what happened. He was arrested and brought to the house. The body was later taken to the hospital by the policemen,” she explained.
When we visited Ejigbo Police Station, the Divisional Police Officer, DPO, CSP Benjamin Olanrewaju Adeola was not around to comment on the incident but sources at the station confirmed it.
