The suspect, who was paraded at the IRT Office in Abuja on Tuesday, confessed to having hit the victim with a pestle during an allegedly violent argument at her two-bedroom residence in the Lugbe area of the FCT on October 24.
According to him, he met the deceased in a Facebook group in 2020, adding that their relationship started on a good note, which led to him moving into her apartment.
He claimed that the relationship turned abusive with him being the victim.
Speaking about the circumstances that led to her death, the suspect said he and Ijeoma had an argument over a Toyota Highlander she had given him, which he sold without her consent.
