According to reports, Chidinma has been arrested and is being detained at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, for Akinbule’s death, which occurred on Sunday.
PUNCH Metro learnt that the duo started a romantic relationship three years ago and had a child together. They did not marry.
It was gathered that Chidinma had visited Akinbule at his mother’s house in the Gbagada area of the state around 9pm on Saturday to pass the night.
It was said they had a misunderstanding at night which resulted in a fight, during which Chidinma allegedly hit Akinbule’s head on the wall.
Akinbule’s elder sister, who spoke to PUNCH correspondent on the telephone on Wednesday, said Chidinma had yet to disclose what caused the argument which led to her brother’s death.
The sister, who did not give her name, said the family was being cautious in discussing the incident with “strangers” for security reasons.
“The lady has been arrested and she is in Panti (SCIID). The incident happened in our mother’s house, not on the (Caleb University) campus. She came around to visit him. We have not ascertained what led to the argument. We have been trying to find out, but she is not saying the truth.
“They had been together for about three years and they have a kid. She is a babymama. The boy is one year and six months old. That was the major thing that bound them together.
“We are ready to follow the case to a logical conclusion. We have been asking her what led to his death because there is no injury on his body.”
The sister, however, declined replies to further inquiries made by PUNCH Metro on the matter, saying “this is a critical period for us and we are being very careful. That is all I can tell you for now (she cuts the call).”
