Barely a day after three people were charged to court for the murder of a British National Nicolas Forster, on Tuesday morning his fiancée Umu Yeanor Kanu told the court how he was murdered.
Explaining before Magistrate Steven Conteh of the Court No 1, she said on the 21st of January this year at around 3:30 am she and the deceased were in the bedroom sleeping when they had a noise and a forceful kick on their door to open.
The witness led in evidence by the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Oladipo Robin Mason disclosed that she saw four men armed with arms, adding that she then hid under the bed while the deceased was shouting.
Umu furthed explained that the said men asked the deceased for money but that the deceased responded that he had no money.
In tears she told the court she heard a gunshot, but thought that they (armed men) wanted to threaten the deceased so that he would show where the money was.
The fiancée furthered that after the gun shot she heard one of the men saying somebody was in the room and they mounted a search until finally a torch was pointed at her and she was asked to show where the money was.
“I responded I don’t know where the money was but at that time one of the men had already pointed a gun on my neck threatening to kill me if I failed to show them” she said in tears.
In a jam packed court the witness stated that at that moment she was totally out of her senses and she showed where the money was.
She said the armed men took the money and stole many other things like phones, video camera, TV set and other expensive items.
The witness maintained that while she was crying she heard the men saying let us kill her and then the other one said no let us rape her which the men agreed.
Umu said as they were taking her to a convenient place to rape her, one of the men suggested they leave her since time was not on their side.
Immediately they left, Umu added, she went to the deceased telling him to wake up not knowing that he was dead.
The following morning Umu said she made a statement to the Police.
No questions were asked by the defense counsels representing the accused persons. The matter was adjourned to the 17th for more hearings and the accused persons were remanded.
