NPF Arrest Female Policewoman For Alleged Killing of Cop Hubby

Delta State Police (DSP) have arrested a policewoman identified as Sergeant Helen for allegedly killing her estranged husband Kelechi Aririguzo, who was also a policeman.

Mr. Aririguzo was traveling to see his daughter in Ogwashi-Uku on Thursday of last week when his wife gathered a crowd that clubbed him to death, according to an eyewitness and Delta police.

A man who gave his name as Uche was eyewitness to the brutal murder and confided in a SaharaReporters correspondent that Mr. Aririguzo met his untimely death after he visited his daughter, who lives with his estranged wife in Umuokwe village.

According to Mr. Uche, Mr. Aririguzo had lived in the neighborhood years ago when serving in a nearby police division. "However, his decision to see his daughter did not go down well with his former wife, who raised alarm that Aririguzo was a kidnapper and had come to abduct her daughter,” Mr. Uche said. “It was the alarm that attracted some youths who attacked the policeman, clubbing him to death in the process."

DSP Public Relations Officer Celestina Kalu confirmed the story and told SaharaReporters that the suspect is being held in custody along with her accomplices.

A source told SaharaReporters that Sergeant Helen and Mr. Aririguzo were legally married but had been separated for some time.

An elderly woman who spoke on the incident, Edna Uzoma, stated that the killing of the policeman has made people in the neighborhood apprehensive about possible repercussions and that since the incident on Thursday most people have run away from their homes.

"Everybody is afraid that police will start arresting everybody around here," she said.
