A High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, on Monday, sentenced one Azubuike Ogonor to death by hanging for killing his girlfriend, Blessing Iyumame.

Ogonor (the convict) was found guilty of setting his girlfriend ablaze after pouring petrol on her body.

According to the judge, the convict committed the crime by pouring petrol on the victim and using matches to set her girlfriend on fire after pouring petrol on her.

The court stated that the convict became aggressive after sighting Iyumame with a man and felt she could dump him (Ogonor) for another man.The tragic incident was said to have happened in the convict’s room.

Justice Okirie commended parties involved in the case,  which lasted for 12 years and four months, for their patience till the day of judgement.


However, Joseph, father of the late Blessing Iyumame, said he was satisfied that her late daughter had got justice at last.
