Anambra State Police Command has confirmed the arrest of Ikechukwu Atansi on Thursday March 26 for allegedly killing his wife. The incident was exposed after an unusual odour coming out from Atansi’s room drew attention of the public.
The state’s police spokesperson, Haruna Mohammed who confirmed the incident disclosed that a decomposing body of a woman who was later identified as Mrs Uchechi Atansi aged 31 years, was spotted at the scene when police officers gained access into the apartment. Marks of violence was observed on the body of the victim and blood spilled all over the room was admitted as evidence when detectives analyzed the scene.
“Surprisingly, however, the deceased’s husband one Mr Ikechukwu Atansi aged 49 years of Umudum village in Isuanochia was right inside the room with the deceased when the door was opened and could not give a satisfactory account of what actually transpired.”
“Instead, the husband claimed that he was injected with a substance by unknown persons who must have killed his wife.
“The husband was subsequently arrested and he is assisting the Police with useful information to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident.”
The Commissioner of Police Mr. John B.Abang has ordered for immediate transfer of the case to the State Criminal investigation department(CID) Awka for discreet investigation.
