A Malaysian based man, Olisemeka Egom, was shot dead, over the weekend, in Benin, Edo State, after he suspended his wedding when he discovered that his fiancé is carrying a 3-month-old questionable pregnancy.
According to Vanguardngr, the 34 years old was shot dead in his family residence at Akugbe Street, Off Okunseri Street, Off Dumez road, Sapele road in the presence of his father, fiancé and their 3-year old boy.
He was said to have returned home to marry the girl who had a baby boy for him and has been leaving with his parents since he traveled out last year.
“My son and the girlfriend Judith have not been quarreling before, but when my son arrived last August he accused the girl of carrying another man’s pregnancy. The girl agreed but said my son was responsible.
My son said it is impossible because he has not been around, the last time he visited Nigeria was July 2017. He said he would not go ahead with the wedding. So this was the issue on ground. My son opened well-stocked baby things shop for her. He said it was because of his son.”
He further accused the girl of complicity in the brutal murder of his son. However, the police said a case of murder was reported and advised the bereaved family to come forth with information.
