They say hate is as strong as love.

What do you do when you hear the woman you are dating is engaged to someone else? That happened to 23-year-old Christian Samuel and he let his emotions get the best of him.

According to reports, Samuel got information that his girlfriend, Ijeoma Nwachukwu, 26, secretly got engaged to marry another man.

Instead of confronting her, pretended not to know and invited her to rendezvous at Cossy-Inn Hotel, Abule-Oshun, in Lagos State on January 11th 2014.

While they were together in the room, Samuel allegedly forced Nwachukwu to drink acid.

When she died, he left her corpse there and fled the hotel.

The owner of the hotel, Olusegun Sangojumo, was said to have discovered the corpse, but did not report to the police.

64-year-old Sangojumo called his manager, Kehinde Ajibola, and one of the workers, Azeez Olaitan, to dispose of the corpse at the Mile 2 end of the Lagos-Badagry Expressway.

The police later discovered the corpse, and after investigation rounded up all the suspects.

Samuel has been remanded in the Ikoyi Prison by an Ebute Meta Magistrate’s Court for allegedly killing his girlfriend, Nwachukwu.

Punch reports:

While Samuel was arraigned for murder, the other three suspects were arraigned for accessory after the fact.

“That you did assist Christian Samuel, who to your knowledge has unlawfully killed one Ijeoma Nwachukwu, by unlawfully removing her corpse from your hotel room and dumped same along the Lagos-Badagry Expressway in order to enable him escape arrest and prosecution.”

The police prosecutor, Inspector G.O Osuyi, of the Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba, said the offences were punishable under sections 221, 409 and 229 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, Nigeria, 2011.
