Imo woman arrested for stabbing lover to death over internet fraud proceeds


The victim was stabbed with a kitchen knife

Oluchi Nzemechi, a 27-year-old woman from Uzoagba in Imo State, has been arrested by the state police command for fatally stabbing her partner, Kelechi Nzemechi, 31.
According to the police, Oluchi confessed that Kelechi had involved her in internet fraud and that a dispute arose on Sunday when he refused to share a portion of their alleged loot of 250 million Rupiah from a victim in Indonesia.
In the heat of the argument, Oluchi claimed she stabbed Kelechi with a kitchen knife, leaving him dead.
She then attempted to cover up the crime by leaving a threatening note on his body and fleeing the scene.

The couple had been living together since 2019 and had a child together.
The police paraded Oluchi and confirmed that she would face charges after the investigation is complete. Efforts are also underway to recover the stolen funds and return them to their rightful owner.
