On Valentine’s Day, we reported that two lovers were found dead in their room after they had returned from a party the previous night.
Per the earlier report, it indicated that the bodies of Ufuoma Atidja and Matilda Aghotor were discovered on Saturday morning, February 13, after neighbours peeped through the window. The man was allegedly found on the floor and the woman on the bed.
Well, an update to the story narrates that the lady committed suicide after she poisoned her lover for allegedly impregnating another woman.
Reports alleged that the couple had died from food poisoning or probably generator fumes, however, sources close to them revealed to Vanguard that Mathilda poisoned Ufuoma because she found out that another woman was pregnant for him.
“Ufuoma impregnated another woman and when Mathilda found out, she could not hold back. Mathilda is the jealous type. And let me tell you, there are injuries on Ufuoma’s wrist and body.
Moreover she has repeatedly said she will kill the guy and kill herself if she finds out he is dating another girl. That is what happened,” a source who simply wants to be addressed as Bobos said.
Another source, who craved anonymity, described Ufuoma as a jovial transporter who plies Sapele-Warri route said relatives and friends had called the deceased line all through Thursday without response. He alleged that Mathilda was still alive on Friday morning.
“It was Mathilda who actually opened the door on Friday morning, and came out with her younger one who was living with them. People saw her and I think it was after then that she drank the poison. The story of poisoning by fish or generator fumes is not the truth.”
Meanwhile, the bodies of the lovers have been laid to rest. A family source said Mathilda was buried at her family home in Amukpe, while Ufuoma’s corpse was buried somewhere unknown.
