A leader in a community is in the grips of the police, for allegedly beating a 25- year- old woman to death.
The man is said to be a community leader of the Enogie of Uroho in Ikpoba Okha local Government area of Edo State.
How Did The Event Unfold
According to report, the deceased identified as Faith Aigbe was discovered in the car belonging to the community leader at a nearby hospital called Specialist, in Benin City on Thursday, September 9.
The incident led to serious arrest as some irate sympathizers broke the windscreen of the SUV sports utility vehicle to catch a glimpse of the dead body of the victim.
Police officers from Aideyan police division reportedly swiftly moved to the scene and towed the car along with the young woman’ s body to the nearest police.
Friends, sympathizers and family members of the young girl have taken to social media to demand for justice while they call on the police to thoroughly investigate the demise of the girl, as they suspect something fishy.
Family Releases A Statement
A statement released by the family of the deceased indicates that the community leader who is reportedly married to four wives, has been allegedly harassing the deceased for a relationship.
On Thursday, he is said to have lured Faith to a location where she told him that she is engaged to another person and planning her wedding.
Angered by the news, he allegedly brutally assaulted the deceased until she became unresponsive. He then bundled her into his tinted Lexus 350, drove her all the way to the Specialist Hospital in Benin City and disappeared, leaving Faith to die. Read below:
” This morning I was disturbed by the horrific and despicable events of what occured yesterday and how a 25- year- old girl called Faith Aigbe was lured by an individual identified as Friday Ogieriakhi Iguodeyala nicknamed ” Drugs” who claims to be the boss of Uho community. She was brutally assaulted and left to perish inside a locked tinted Lexus Jeep.
The Alleged leader Did The Unimaginable To Her
” The said leader went into a rage and beat the deceased mercilessly until she lost her consciousness, then her bundled her into his vehicle and drove her to a nearby hospital.

” After the young girl failed to return home several hours later the family began a thorough search for her and one of the boys to the community leader told the family of her whereabouts, they dashed to the hospital parking lot and searched for the vehicle. Upon spotting the Lexus Jeep, the mother of the young girl tried to force the car door open in the hope that the young girl might still be alive but was prevented from doing so by the hospital security, who told her to go get the police.
Her Mother Is Disturbed
” The distrust mom headed to Aideyan police station and after two hours the police accompanied them there. Instead of the police to quickly force the vehicle open they insisted in towing the vehicle to their station claiming that they do not have the power to force open the vehicle.
” Again the distrust mom watching life sneaking out of her child went to search for a towing vehicle and after close to 5 hours the vehicle was finally towed to the police station where the police then broke the glass of the vehicle and found that Faith had passed away.
” The family of the deceased are in massive pains now and the accused is bragging that nothing can happen to him. ‘
