The Cabinieri police in Italy’s capital city Milan on Friday, arrested a 34-year-old Ghanaian man, GK, for allegedly murdering a 25-year-old Nigerian woman and his former lover, Tunde Blessing.
It is reported that the deceased who was reported missing on May 5 was found dead on May 12, by the road side in the Milanese district of Mazzo di Rho where she worked as a s*x worker. It was learnt that Blessing broke up with the suspect in April after a year-long romantic relationship filled with domestic violence.
ItalyNews24 reports that GK had tried to convince the deceased to retrace her steps, calling her several times and asking her friend to mediate on the matter. He killed her when she refused. After the murder, he ran off with her money and phones.
GK was caught via the CCTV cameras at where he dumped her corpse. An autopsy report indicated that Blessing might have died of asphyxiation — strangled by the long braids of the wig she wore which were found wrapped around her neck.
During interrogations by the police, GK admitted to being jealous lover stating that he didn’t want her to have the phone numbers of other men. He added that they both had a child together but Blessing had refused to marry him because her father didn’t want her to marry a Ghanaian. He confessed to the crime and was charged with voluntary homicide and theft.
