Becky, 29, remained at large, and Odion's family appealed to the Nigerian police to track and arrest her for murder.

Standard Gazette spotted Odion's older sister, Esohe Fidelis, at the St. Saviour Police station, where she complained about the murder of her brother.

Esohe told Standard Gazette's correspondent that the family had concluded a plan to resolve the financial issue before the incident.

She wondered why Becky killed her brother despite the family's effort to resolve the problem.

According to her, "Becky threatened on Friday last week that she will cripple my brother, and now l can see that she has finally killed him.

"I was in the hospital where my brother was receiving treatment, and he suddenly died on Monday around 2 am.

"I want the police to please help find Becky, who has escaped, and she should be arrested and made to face the law".

The landlady of the house, Mrs Patience Idemudia, said they had always quarrelled and settled but laments the man's death.

Mrs Idemudia said, "This man that died has been in my house for four years with the woman, and they both have a child.

"I really want the police to thoroughly investigate the incident and bring the culprit to justice".
