Edo: Family Seeks Justice Over Alleged Ritual Killing Of 29-Year-Old By Boyfriend

The family of a 29-year old lady, Elohor Oniorosa, an OND holder and teacher in a private school allegedly killed during a visit to her boyfriend, one Osaretin David, a truck driver in Iguadolor community, Ovia North East Local Government Area on Christmas eve are seeking justice over her death.

Elohor’s parents explained that after waiting for hours for their daughter to return home following the said visit and with calls to her line going unanswered, they decided to visit the apartment that evening.

While speaking with Channels Television, Elohor’s mother, Comfort Oniorosa, said her daughter left the house for her boyfriend’s place thinking that his illness would have gotten worse.


According to her, the victim didn’t brush as she left on December 24 after receiving a call from David without even brushing her teeth.

But the victim’s father, Williams Oniorosa, said he met his daughter in her pool of blood, a situation that prompted him and the landlord to alert the police authorities.

He thereafter led Channels Television to David’s apartment where the crime allegedly took place. The building was found under lock and key with no clue of the suspect’s whereabouts.

“When we got there, the landlord just pushed the door open and all we saw is that my daughter was lying in the poll of blood. Everywhere both the bedspread, the whole wall of the house was stained with blood. So we had to rush to the police, myself and the landlord,” he said.


The police confirmed that the victim was found dead with deep machete cuts on parts of her body in the apartment of the young man who had recently returned from Ghana, disclosing that a manhunt was on to apprehend the suspect who is on the run.

The landlord, Ifueko Ogieriakhi, who was invited by the police to give a statement, explained why he locked up the suspect’s apartment.

He noted that the reason he locked the suspect’s apartment was his properties were still there, hence the decision to prevent it from being burgled.

But the police authorities are ever determined to arrest the fleeing suspect and prosecute him if liable for the murder.

Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Bello Kontongs, said if it is discovered that the suspect didn’t eventually commit the crime, the police would do everything humanly possible to unravel the circumstance that led to the murder of the victim
