Tamunokopo was later arrested and charged to court for allegedly killing Abigail.

The charge read in part, “That you, Douglas Tamunokopo, on September 1, 2016, around 3pm, at the Mogadishu Barracks, Abuja, in the Abuja Judicial Division, did cause the death of your girlfriend, Udo Abigail, by strangulating her to death.”

The prosecutor, Wale Adeagbo, said that the offense was punishable under Section 221 of the Penal Code.

However, the defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The investigative police officer, Inspector Thomas Zephaniah, was led in evidence by Adeagbo.

The officer said, “The officer in charge of the Homicide Section mobilised a team of police officers with me as an investigating police officer, to the scene where the incident occurred.

“There was a scene of purported suicide committed by a young lady. When the room of the accused person was opened, I saw a young lady seated on a plastic chair, with a rope of multiple entanglements tied to her neck, and a rope tied to a five-inch nail on the wall.”

Speaking further, he explained that the rope was removed from the deceased neck and her body was transferred to a hospital where an autopsy was conducted.

According to Zephaniah, an autopsy was carried out, and from the autopsy report, the cause of the death was asphyxia and strangulation caused by the defendant.

Documents were sought to be tendered through the witness, and the defence counsel, M.E Ogbonna, had no objection. The documents were thereafter admitted in evidence by the Judge as an exhibit in the matter.

Justice C.O Agbaza adjourned the matter till September 26, 2022, for cross-examination.
