The suspect identified as Munda Bala, 31, reportedly conspired with his two friends to kill his girlfriend who they burnt to ashes before burying her in a bush.
Bala who was paraded alongside some ashes and bones of the deceased, blamed the sad act on jealousy and hardship.
His confessional statement below ;
“I fell in love with Imbajuri Ambisi. She became my girlfriend; I got her pregnant and she delivered a baby boy and killed him after seven months.
“This got me angry and I couldn’t tell anyone. My money got finished and she ran away to some wealthy guys who engage in the selling of rosewoods to foreigners.”
“This got me jealous and I met two of my friends who advised me that if I really want my heart to be at rest, I have to kill her, hence our decision to eliminate her.”
Taraba State Police Spokesperson, David Misal said a manhunt has already been launched to arrest the other fleeing suspects.
