A 28-year-old commercial bus driver, Abraham Umar, was, on Tuesday, shot dead by some cultists ravaging Cele bus stop, Ijanikin, Lagos, over his 17-year-old girlfriend, Arigi Precious Elo.
Umar was killed in Elo’s mother restaurant at about 9:30p.m by cultists numbering 9. An eyewitness said, “I was surprised because his girlfriend Elo was with them at the scene. Everybody ran away leaving his body at the scene, while she left with the killers.”
The deceased’s father, Muhammed Umaru, revealed that his son had been receiving threat messages from the cultists, to leave Elo alone that she belongs to one of them.
“But my son kept saying everything is fine. My son’s friend, Peter told me that the boy sending the threat messages once confronted them.
I told his auntie and uncle who warned the girl to stay away from him and also warned him to leave the girl alone, but he didn’t listen.”
Elo was not remorseful when police arrested her. She said Abraham was her only boyfriend. However, sources revealed that she is a “notorious girl and belongs to a cult group.”
The source said:
“She is seen at all the club houses and hotels here. She sleeps around with with men for money. Two of her sisters are said to be in Italy prostituting and her mother is preparing to send her to Dubai.
In fact, her travelling documents are ready. Should be travelling in two weeks’ time. I wonder what that gentle boy was doing with her. She is not a good girl.”
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, said four suspects had been arrested and noted that Abraham’s best friend, now at large, set him up because he also has a crush on Elo.
