The Best Of African Stories


The Aleato family has been
thrown into sorrow
following the murder of their
26-year-old daughter,
Onyinyechukwu, last
Saturday by her ex-boyfriend
in Lagos.

The deceased, a sales girl at
Alaba International market,
Ojo, was reportedly trailed by
her ex-boyfriend, Osita
Amanunwa from her Iba
new site abode, to Ajangbadi
area of Lagos, where she
had gone to visit a friend.

It was gathered that the
late Onyin, as she was fondly
called, sat outside her host’s
compound, exchanging
banters, without the slightest
inkling that death lurked at
the corner.

Eye witnesses said she
turned and suddenly, the
smile on her face
disappeared. And when her
host turned to the direction
of her gaze, they discovered
that her ex stood opposite
Her host who spoke on
condition of anonymity, told
reporters that: “ she
greeted him but he hissed
and walked away. He later
came back and beckoned on
her to come. She excused
herself and left…”.

Singular response
He paused at this
juncture,quivering with fear.

That singular response
happened to be Onyin’s
greatest undoing because
unknown to her, Osita had a
sinister motive up his

This was confirmed
moments later, following a
desperate shout for help
from the isolated meeting
point at number 4/5 Abike
Ogunlana close, at about
9pm. At first, no one
suspected it could be Onyin.
But after waiting for a while,
her host decided to check on
her, only to see Onyin in the
pool of her own blood with a
knife still t----t in her neck.

From all indication, it was
obvious that she tried to put
up a struggle in order to
free herself from the
assailant’s grip.

She was also discovered to
have managed to crawl from
the isolated spot to an open
area. But her strength
apparently failed her
midway, owing to much
loss of blood. Unable to crawl
further, she stopped,
clutching firmly to the earth
as if rescue would spring
out of it. Osita on the other
hand, was nowhere to be

Cause of break-up:
It was gathered that
before the incident, Osita, a
trader at Alaba International
market, had on several
occasions, threatened to
leave an indelible mark on
Onyin for dumping him for
another man. Investigation
revealed that the duo had a
romantic relationship that
lasted for six years, a
relationship that was to lead
to marriage until Osita
allegedly raped Onyin’s
younger sister.

Family sources told reporters that Oyin’s younger
sister(names withheld) was
sent to deliver a parcel to
Osita at his 80 Isiaka street,
Iba new site two years ago.
However, on reaching his
apartment he allegedly
raped the teenager who was
barely 15 years-old.
It was gathered that the
teenager never told anyone
about the deed, until she
was discovered to be
pregnant. She gave birth
about a year ago.
Without further warning or
advice, Onyinyechukwu,
stopped seeing Osita. But her
action as gathered, signaled
the danger that eventually
led to her sudden death,
following threat from Osita.

Perhaps, had she listened to
her parents, this tragedy
might not have befallen her.
It was gathered that right
from the onset, Onyin’s
parents kicked against her
relationship with 36-year-old
Osita who hails from Akere
village in Ogbaru local
government area of
Anambra state.

Her devastated father, Mr
Aleato, offered an
explanation to the family’s
stance: “ My daughter came
back home one fateful day
with razor marks all over her
body and when I asked what
happened, she told me that
she fell down. But we were
later informed by a friend of
hers that her boyfriend,
Osita, inflicted the marks on
her. I warned her severally
to abstain from Osita and
every other man who would
go to the extent of inflicting
such injury on her; men who
would not respect her as a

It was also gathered that
Osita had on several
occasions beat Onyin
publicly, for calling off the
relationship , only to start off
with another man, boasting
that if he could not have her,
nobody else would.
Police on the trail of the
Since the tragic incident,
Osita’s whereabouts is
unknown. Policemen at
Ilemba Hausa were
however, said to be on his
trail. When reporters visited
his apartment at Iba new
site, it was discovered that
Osita had a wife already.
Sources hinted that he
rushed home that fateful
night and informed some of
his friends around the area
about what he had done and
thereafter, picked some of
his clothes before
disappearing into thin air.

Out of fear, his close friends
were also discovered to have
fled, apparently to avoid
being arrested by the Police.
The case, has been
transferred to the State
Criminal Investigation
Department (SCID) where
operatives at the Homicide
section have reportedly
began investigation.
