Stephen Uwa

 A 60-year-old man, resident at Adeniji Street, Iyana Ishashi area of the Lagos state, has been arrested for the death of his lover, Joy Vincent.

Vincent, 45,  died after she paid a visit to her boyfriend Stephen Uwa at his home in Lagos, last Sunday. Uwa then returned her corpse to her house on Osha Arigba Street, Imude, and fled.

According to Punch, Uwa and three others had on Thursday taken the dead woman home in a vehicle, and when they did not meet anyone at home, laid her on the bed and covered her up, pretending she was still alive.
They asked that her son, Ikechukwu, be called from school. When Ikechukwu arrived, they asked the boy to go call the deceased's sister who lived 5 minutes away. After he ran off to  get his aunt, Uwa and his cohorts fled.

The deceased's son, told the publication:

IK (Ikechukwu) said Stephen (Uwa) came to the house in a car with a man and two women. When they drove into the compound, one of our neigbours who sells in front of the next house told them that nobody was around. “He then requested that they call IK, whose school is on the next street. When IK came, he (Uwa) told him that my mother was sick and requested the key to her apartment. IK collected the key from the neighbour and gave him. Stephen told him to go call our aunt, Aunty Esther, who lives on Alafia Street, which is about five minutes’ walk from our house. “Before IK and Aunt Esther returned, they had driven away after laying her corpse on the bed. They covered her body with clothes to look as if she was sleeping. I still can’t believe my mother is gone. She was healthy when she left home.

The aunt, Esther, said she suspected foul play when she got to the deceased’s house and did not find the people who brought her home.

“My suspicion was confirmed as soon as I entered my sister’s room and found her lifeless body covered with clothes. I raised the alarm and went to the Ilemba Police Station to report the case,” she added. 

However, Uwa told the police that Vincent arrived in his house on Sunday, adding that when they woke up together on Thursday, she complained of stomach pain and asked that she be taken to her house. He added that as of the time he took her home, she was alive, but unconscious.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chike Oti, who confirmed the incident and said:

“Investigation is ongoing. The suspect will be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, for further investigation.”
