Mr. Kenneth Enamika, a police inspector at the Anambra State Police Command, has allegedly committed suicide after killing Cajethan and his Oluchi Aputanze at the Mgbidi community in Oru West Local Government Area of the state.
Mr. Orlando Ikeokwu, the police spokesperson while confirming the incident, said the police Inspector, after committing suicide, left a note saying he took his life because he killed a husband and wife.
The police officer said he killed the husband and wife because, the wife collected the sum of N150, 000 from him and promised to marry him, only for him to find out she is to Cajethan.
“On March 22, 2020, one Alloy Eze of Ozoara, Mgbidi, Oru West LGA, Imo State, reported to the Oru West Divisional Police Headquarters that he returned home only to meet the corpses of three persons behind his house.
The police got the information and moved to the scene and met the corpses of Oluchi Aputanze, Cajethan Aputanze, and Inspector Kenneth Enamika, who was attached to the 29 Police Mobile Force, Awka, Anambra State.
One AK-47 rifle was recovered from the scene as well as a note declaring intent to kill Oluchi and Cajethan Aputanze and to also commit suicide.
In the note, Enamika claimed that Oluchi obtained the sum of N150,000 from him, claiming that she was single and had accepted to marry him.
Enamika later discovered that she was married to Cajethan Aputanze. He also claimed that to recover his money, Cajethan threatened to kill him through diabolical means. As a result, he resorted to self-help, that is, by killing the couple and committing suicide.” he said.
The police say an investigation into the matter has commenced while the corpses have been deposited in the morgue.
