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 husband of Umudum village in Isuanocha was right inside the room with the deceased when the door was opened and could not give a satisfactory account of what actually transpired.
Upon being interrogated, the suspect who lives in Umueze Village in Amawbia community claimed he slept for three days without knowing what happened to him.
According to him, it was during that time some unknown persons came in and killed his wife.
Atansi also gave an excuse of not communicating with anyone at that time because his phone’s battery was dead.
The Commissioner of Police, John Abang has ordered for immediate transfer of the case to the State Criminal investigation department(CID) Awka for discreet investigation
