Man Allegedly Commits Suicide In His Car After Murdering Girlfriend




The lifeless bodies of an unidentified man and woman have been found along the Mowe/Ibafo axis of Lagos-Ibadan highway.

Residents of the area said the car was noticed on Tuesday with two of them locked in the car.

There have been few speculations about the cause of death.

A resident in the area  identified as Jane told Daily Post that: “The car has been standing here since yesterday (Monday). But this morning, people moved closer and discovered that there were two lifeless bodies inside it. We don’t know what killed them.”

Another source, Seun Damilola claimed that the couple actually didn’t die while having sex inside the car.

He said: “The man beat his girlfriend to death at their house around Akoka, drove her down to Mowe, dropped a suicide letter to his family and fed himself a poison.”

The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the incident on Wednesday said it was a murder-suicide case.

According to him: “The two did not die while having sex. What happened was that the girl in question happened to be a girlfriend to that man. He rented an apartment for her somewhere in Lagos. He went there to visit her. We don’t know what transpired between them, but we learnt he hit the woman on the head and she slumped.

“He carried the lifeless body of the woman in his vehicle. People in that neighbourhood ran to Ilaje police station in Bariga to report. But he drove off, straight to his house at Orimerunmu. He dropped a suicide note, informing his wife that he had killed somebody. He told his wife not to bother looking for him, asking her to take care of the children. Then he left the house.

“He drove and parked near NASFAT area and he committed suicide there. We saw a container of Sniper in the vehicle, which suggested that he drank Sniper (an insecticide). He wound up the glasses and died in the vehicle.
