Deceased Cynthia

Stonix News gathered that the alleged murderer, Mr Emmanuel Omoru, killed his wife, Cynthia Agho, 27, who had had two children for him after accusing him of persistent infidelity.

The incident occurred at 10, Omozuise Street, Off Street 2, Lucky Way, Aduwawa, Benin City about 11:48p.m on Saturday, July 16, 2022.

Father of the deceased, Mr Festus Agho, told Nigerian Observer that his daughter Cynthia had severally complained of her husband’s infidelity.

Mr Agho added that the latest was a girl identified as Tosin, a POS operator, whom Mr Emmanuel Umoru had earlier introduced to his late daughter as a goddaughter, but was eventually discovered to be one of his side chicks.

The deceased was said to have confronted the POS lady whose kiosk is opposite the office of her husband with evidence that she was having an affair with her husband.

The action of Cynthia was said to have infuriated her husband

Mr Agho stated further that when his son-in-law, Mr Umoru, called and reported his daughter’s action to him, he sued for forgiveness in the overall interest of peace.

Cynthia’s husband was said to have taken their two children to his mother’s custody at the heat of the brawl that ensued.

Cynthia’s father however expressed sadness that about 11:56p.m on Saturday, July 16, 2022, Mr Umoru’s landlord called to inform him that his daughter had hanged herself.

“I met police officers from Aduwawa who said I cannot go in to see the corpse of my daughter.

“But from what I have seen so far, I want Edo State government, commission of police in Edo State and relevant authorities to help me ask my daughter’s husband what he did to his wife.

“My daughter did not take her life,” the agonising father insisted.

Confirming the incident, the Public Relations Officer for Edo State Police Command, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, said Mr Emmanuel Umoru has been taken to police custody.

“Operatives met the body dangling on a rope tied to a ceiling fan in her bedroom.

“The body was evacuated to our hospital for autopsy and preservation while preliminary investigation is ongoing,” SP Chidi stated.
