A 16 year old boy identified as Chibuzo Ohaneme reportedly stabbed his female classmate, Olamma Ekwebelem, to death because she refused his advances at her.
The ugly incident happened at Umuoli Ikpem area of Ehime Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State.
Apparently angred over Olamma’s repeated rejection, the boy ambushed and killed her.
“The boy and the girl are classmates and of the same age. The boy had repeatedly asked her out but she refused.
“She reported the boy’s disturbances to her parents, who reprimanded him but he kept on disturbing the girl.
“Frustrated, the boy ambushed the girl and stabbed her to death. The community was about setting the boy’s father’s house ablaze when the police intervened,” (as seen on Punch).
Orlando Ikeokwu, the spokesman of the Imo State Police Command, confirmed the incident, saying that the suspect had been arrested.
“One Chibuzo Ohaneme of Umuohum Umuna, Onuimo LGA was arrested for the murder of his friend, Olamma Ekwebelem of Umuoli Ikpem.
“The suspect stabbed the victim in her stomach and she died. As I speak to you, the case file and the suspect have been transferred to State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Owerri, for further investigation,” the police said.
