The incident, which happened on Thursday, 9 September 2021, attracted hoodlums and sympathizers in the premises of the Specialist Hospital in Benin City,
The situation led to serious apprehension, If not the intervention of the Edo State police command, as some angry sympathizers broke the windscreen of the SUV Sports Utility car to catch a glimpse of the dead body.
Police officers from Aideyan police division arrived at the scene and towed the vehicle along with Faith’s remains to the nearest police station.
However, as of press time, the body of the 27-year-old woman has been deposited in the mortuary for further investigation.
According to Pharez Okpere,while speaking to Verifiedngnews said,it”A CRY FOR JUSTICE “
This morning I was awakend by the sad and despicable events of what happened Yesterday and how a young 25 years old Faith Aigbe was lured by one Friday Ogieriakhi Iguodeyala AKA (Drugs) who claims to be the Ohen of Uho community to his house she was brutally assaulted and left to die inside a locked Lexus jeep.
The sad event happened yesterday, the young girl was a teacher in one of the schools in the community, the said Ohen has been pestering her for a relationship despite married to 4 wives, yesterday the Ohen lured her to a location yesterday where she informed the Ohen that she is planning her introduction to get married, enraged by the information, the said Ohen went into a rage and beat the young girl mercilessly until she became unresponsive, then he dragged her into his tinted Lexus 350 and drove her to central hospital, on arrival at central hospital he parked his car with the young girl inside and fled the scene without trying to get the hospital emergency teams to administer treatment or first aid to her.
Seeing that the young girl did not return home after some hours the family started a frantic search for her and one of the boys to the Ohen informed the family of her whereabouts, they rushed to the hospital parking lot and searched for the car on finding the car and the young girl sucked in the back seat the mother tried to force the car door open in the hope that the girl might still be alive but the hospital secirty stopped her and requested they go get the police, the distrust mother then rushed to Aideyan police station and after 2 hours the police reluctantly accompanied them there, instead of the police to quickly force the car open they insisted in towing the car to their police station saying that they do not have the power to foece open the car.
Again the distrust mother watching life sneaking out of her daughter went to look for a towing van and after about 5 hours the car was eventually towed to the police station where the police then broke the glass of the car and discovered that the young girl had given up the ghost.
The family of the young girl are in serious pains now and the said Ohen is bragging that nothing can happen to him. The mother of the deceased girl called me early this morning and tearfully narrated her ordeal to me.
I am asking you all to help the family of Faith Aigbe to call on the police to immediately arrest and prosecute the said Ohen…..
Verifiedngnews further gathered that the Enogie has since reported himself in Ologbo Police Division, Edo state, where the police have kept him for more investigation.
In an exclusive interview with Standard Verifiedngnews , the Enogie of Uroho, Enogie Iguodala Ogieriakhi, said, “Faith is a woman l proposed to marry. She lives with me in my palace. But I have been having issue with some of her family members who do not want me to marry her.
“Faith was eight months pregnant for me, but some of her family members who do not want me to marry her encouraged her to commit abortion.
“She forcefully induced her pregnancy, leading to the death of the unborn child.
She complained of serious stomach pain. I quickly rushed her to a private hospital, but they rejected her and referred us to another bigger hospital. “But before I drove to Specialist Hospital along Sapele road in Benin city, she died.
“When the doctors in the hospital came to check her, they pronounced her dead while she was still in my car.
It was at that point, I quickly reported myself to the police station near my house. I am right now at the police station”.
He denied killing the woman, assuring that an autopsy would prove his innocence.
Iguodala Ogieriakhi said he loved Faith and was ready to marry her.
However, two of the family members of the deceased, Mrs Janet Asemota and Mercy Eddy, have asked the police to thoroughly investigate the death as they suspect foul play.
