Nigerian couple in Libya arrested for murder of young lady
A Nigerian couple has been arrested in connection with the death of a Nigerian woman identified as Happiness Monday, in Libya.
The Libya Observer, in a report on Wednesday, April 13, 2023, said police forces arrested the couple in Tripoli.
According to the report, the suspects allegedly killed the woman and dumped her body in the street near the Nigerian Embassy in Tripoli.
A Nigerian sports journalist and Libya returnee, Oyiza, who had reported about the murder last month, said the wife hit the deceased on her head with a heavy metal and when they noticed she wasn’t very conscious, the husband called a taxi driver and they dumped her near the Nigerian Embassy.
“My dearest Akwa Ibomites, Here’s your daughter, Happiness Monday. She was abandoned half dead at the Nigerian Embassy Tripoli, Libya. Unfortunately she died at the hospital. She needs to be buried but nothing can be done without the consent of her relatives. Can you please identify her or please share to various Akwa Ibom platforms so we can get in touch with any family member? It’s a matter of urgency and I would appreciate if you come through for her so she can get her final rest. The only information gotten from her is her name.” she wrote in the post.
