A former officer of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), attached to Ozoro Area in Delta State, James Eno, fondly called Bishop, has on Thursday shot his lover, Emezana Purity for refusing to accept his marriage proposal.
Credible sources said Purity turned down the marriage offer when she discovered that he (Eno) was already married with a child which he kept as a secret during their five-year-long relationship.
An eyewitness close to the family who pleaded anonymity revealed this to Security Reporters.com. “He had told the family of Purity to refund back his money he spent on her but they begged him to give them some time till Tuesday next week. He calculated and pegged the money at 1.5million naira which they agreed to pay.
“He could no longer have patience after they begged him three days ago but to spit a vicious venom by coming straight to the girl’s house on Thursday with a service pistol and shooting straight into her chest.”
It was gathered that James is now on the run as Purity battles for her life in an undisclosed hospital in Warri where she is already placed on oxygen and getting other medical attention.
