A family source said that when the suspect continued the act, the widow’s daughter, a 13-year-old girl was forced by Nwabu to leave the house for threatening to expose him.

The girl ran to her grand-parents in the night because Nwabu threatened to kill her. She came to greet her mother in the morning but met her dead body. She consequently informed her grand-father.

The youth declared a search party for Nwabu and found him in his father’s compound. He admitted to committing the crime.
