A commercial motorcyclist (Okada rider) in Oghara, Ethiope West, Delta State government district, identified simply as Happy, murdered his girlfriend Orhie Everusi for alleged infidelity.
Although the details of the incident were sketchy at the time of filing this report, Happy, who lives in Oghara but is from Ogharefe, allegedly confessed to having committed the heinous act after thorough questioning.
Sources said Happy, a popular Okada driver in the community, initially feigned ignorance of the friend’s sudden disappearance until her crumbling body was eventually discovered in the bush where he had hidden it.

A relative of the deceased, who lives in Igbimidaka, had initially suspected Happy after the lady had disappeared a few days earlier.
It was found that Happy was reportedly trying to commit suicide by drinking Sniper when the bubble burst. He apparently got guilty about his evil act and was thinking of ending his own life just like he did with his lover.
He reportedly ingested a small dose of the toxic insecticide before being stopped by neighbors who took him to the hospital, from where he later became conscious.
