Ndubueze Nelly James, the elder brother of Isioma Joy Ndubueze, who was shot in the mouth by her police boyfriend, on Thursday, October 8, has narrated what led to the unfortunate incident.
Joy was rushed to the hospital, after she was shot at Salvation Bus Stop, Ikeja, Lagos State, by her boyfriend identified as officer Eze Nwansoba, with batch number: 458468.
According to James, the couple have been together for almost two years and was planning to get married in December 2020. However, things went south after Joy broke up with Eze last week following alleged domestic abuse.
“She has been seeing signs of domestic abuse and lies. They were living together and were having a lot of issues.
After reaching out to relatives and even their pastor for counseling, and nothing seems to change, she decided to pack out, and broke up with him.
But it looks like Eze had made up his mind that it’s either him or death. He decided to end things in his own way by taking advantage of his career/uniform and the resources at his disposal.
Currently Eze is on the run, he is nowhere to be found. We are appealing to everyone to help us find this perpetrator so that the law can take it’s course. We seek justice for our sister,” he said.
