View Full Version : Nigerian Lover Remanded

26th June 2012, 08:28 PM
NATHANIEL UDAMA Adu, the 26-year-old Nigerian who was arrested by the Mile 7 Police for allegedly killing his 19-year-old girlfriend, Matilda Asante, was yesterday hauled to the Amasama District Magistrate Court on a holding charge of murder.


The Magistrate, Abena Adjin Doku, remanded him into police custody to re-appear on Monday July 9, 2012.

He was arrested on Monday June 18, at about 8:00am, while browsing at an internet café after he supposedly murdered Matilda earlier that dawn for reasons not yet known to the police.

Udama, when sent to the crime scene, was reported to have identified the deceased and confirmed that they were friends but insisted they had last seen each other in April.

Even though they spoke on phone, he had not heard from the deceased in the past week, adding that the last time they spoke was Monday June 11, 2012.

But the police, who were highly suspicious of Udama, arrested him for further questioning.

DSP Peter Yembila had earlier told DAILY GUIDE that upon information received from a resident, the police proceeded to Tantra Hills, where they found Matilda’s corpse wrapped in a bed sheet in an uncompleted structure, with her limps tied up while a black polythene bag covering her head was tied around her broken neck.

Sources say the polythene bag which the suspect used in covering Matilda’s head before tying it to her neck might have been an attempt to gag her so she could not shout for help while she was under attack.

Suspecting she might have been killed in a nearby house and dumped in the uncompleted house, the police began a wild search which yielded some good results.

The first house to be searched was the adjoining house, which turned out to be where suspect Udama lived with his elder brother, Collins Uka.

A pillow-case in the suspect’s room matched the bed sheet that the deceased was wrapped in, indicating that the deceased might have passed the night with Udama, who later murdered her under bizarre circumstances.
