A 200-level Niger Delta University (NDU) student, Jennifer Ugadu has allegedly been murdered by her soldier boyfriend for cheating on him with another man.
According to friends of the deceased who have taken to social media to call for justice, the soldier boyfriend, popularly known as Jay Matol reportedly raped Jennifer, shot and stabbed her multiple times because he suspected she was cheating on him.
After the alleged killing, Matol reportedly placed her dead body on the bed and locked her inside before running away with her phone. He also allegedly severed her thumb to use it in unlocking her phone.
The suspect who is currently at large was said to have logged on to Jenifer’s department’s WhatsApp group to announce that he has killed her and plans to kill himself too.
“I don kill am… I will kill myself,” a message from Jennifer’s phone posted in her department’s WhatsApp group read.
She was found dead in her apartment with multiple stab injuries and bullet wounds on Sunday, July 11, days after she was gruesomely murdered. The state of the room reportedly showed there was a struggle before she was killed.
Jennifer and Jay are said to have been dating for five years before the sad incident. Jay’s last Facebook post is a photo of Jennifer. She is also his cover photo.
