Agnes Daniel died in circumstances that are not yet clear but detectives at the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Nasarawa State Police Command, believe that it was caused by a fatal abortion bid.
According to Sunnews, the Commissioner of Police, Muhammed Kura, revealed that the incident happened on October 12, 2017. He said that information obtained from Dennis Eze, 37, who is the prime suspect and fiancé of the deceased lady, indicated that she may have died from complications arising from a bid to abort a pregnancy. When she began to writhe in severe pain, Eze was said to have drawn the attention of his landlord and neighbour and requested his assistance, to take Daniel to the hospital. In a chat with Sunnews, Eze said: “She had been having stomach pain for a long time. I didn’t know whether she had an abortion. On the day that she died, she started complaining of severe pain. I quickly informed my neighbor and my landlord to assist me, to take her to the hospital. It was on the way that she died in my car. I was confused. So I dumped the lifeless body along Masaka road.
When I got home, my landlord asked me about the condition of my girlfriend. I lied to him that she was okay. My landlord was not comfortable with my response. So, he reported me to the police who came to arrest me.”
Eze explained further that he and Daniel were planning to hold their traditional marriage this December before she died. “We have been in a relationship for about one year. But she became sick and in pain. I called her mother about the daughter’s illness. I fully regret the fact that I dumped her body, after she died. It was not intentional, I was just confused. It was not my intention to act foolishly,” he added. CP Kura stated that Eze would soon be charged to court after the command receives legal advice from the State Prosecutor.
