Her shout for help alerted neighbours, including a gateman, identified simply as Adamu. On reaching Umeh’s flat, he was reportedly seen trying to hide a substance, which turned out to be late Happiness’ mobile telephone.

The curious neighbours were said to have searched the flat for the victim, only to discover her lifeless body behind Umeh’s window.
Policemen at Ago Division were immediately contacted, consequent upon which Umeh was arrested, from where he was transferred to the State Criminal Investigations and Intelligence Department, SCIID.

His family Investigation revealed that Umeh’s wife and five children travelled to his village in Orumba South Local Government Area of Anambra State. Vanguard gathered that immediately after the incident, the suspect contacted his wife to come to Lagos and move his property to the village.

One of the neighbours, who spoke with Vanguard, said: “Our gateman allowed her inside that night because she was seen with Victor the previous day.

The gateman was first alerted by the shout for help and by the time he got close to the window, he saw somebody running.

“Her desperate shout for help was intensive, but with time it became faint until it stopped. He tried to escape and hide the deceased phone on a fence so as to make it difficult for the Police to trace her death to him. If he had succeeded we would have been in trouble.”
