While recounting the incident that led to the victim’s death, he said: “I met her online sometime between September and October 2014 on face book and we began to chat. On that fateful evening, we went out, spent quality time together and later retired to her apartment and slept.

‘’At about midnight, she began to complain about headache and then she started coughing. It was when the coughing persisted that I had to go and knock on her next neighbours’ door to help me locate a nearby hospital, with the help of her neighbours, we went to a nearby private hospital and we were later referred to the general hospital. With the assistance of her neighbours, we made it to Ifako General Hospital in Ogba. By the time they began to attend to her, she had passed on.”
