The widow of Chukwuma Eleje, a Jumia delivery agent murdered in Port-Harcourt, Rivers state, has spoken out after the incident.
Mrs. Blessing Eleje, speaking to Nigeria Info Port-Harcourt, revealed their kids didn’t even know about the incident.
“He left for work telling us that he would be back. He promised the children by telling them he would buy a lot of goodies for them. Up till now, they are believing that their daddy is coming back.
“How will I cope with school fees? Our rent has expired and the landlord gave us one week and now the one week has expired.
“Now, I am hearing my husband is dead; how am I going to cope? He was just an ordinary man with a wife and four children,” she cried.
She revealed that she had learnt about the gruesome news when people started consoling her.
“I did not know that the news had spread everywhere. My family and I were not aware until when I saw people gathering in my house telling me sorry. I was surprised, I didn’t understand why they were telling me sorry,” she said.
Eleje’s suspected killers, Sodienye Mbatumukeke, Excel Naabe and Joy Eluwa, have already been arrested by the police.
