A Babcock graduate, Onoseta Oribhabor has reportedly committed suicide after murdering his 27-year old girlfriend in Toronto, Canada.
According to information gathered, on March 6, the police were called to a condo building in the north end of the city.
They found Oribhabor dead on a balcony.
They found a woman inside a unit with obvious signs of trauma after a further research.
She was treated for injuries but ultimately died.
Oribhabor graduated from Babcock University, Ogun State, before leaving for Canada as reported online.
Police characterize the case as a murder-suicide and have listed 27-year-old Essozinam Assali as the city’s 10th homicide victim of the year.
They have identified the 30-year-old man as Onoseta Oribhabor of Edmonton.
Police describe the deaths as a domestic incident and say no other suspects are being sought.
While those close to Assali allege Oribhabor was her boyfriend, but Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook would not confirm the relationship.
Ontario has seen an unusually high number of domestic-related deaths since the beginning of the year.
Gender-based violence experts have documented more than a dozen cases of women or their family members killed by past or present intimate partners.
A number of people expressed condolences and referred to her as “Martine.”
“It is very difficult to express how shock I am with the news of your death considering we only spoke three weeks ago.
“Words can’t describe how caring and great you are,” wrote Eddie Idisi.
“Words can’t describe how nice a person you were and how blessed I was to have known and be a brother and friend to you.”
