Addo made the disclosure while giving evidence as the third prosecution witness in a murder case filed against Kenechi by the Lagos State Government.
The police officer said that the accused told the police that he had a misunderstanding with the deceased that made him struggle for her cell phone and in the process, she died.
“The accused lied when he told me that it was during the struggle that he pushed the deceased to the bed where she slumped and died.”
“The accused took the girl’s car, her three phones and her ATM card to Abidjan, where he was later arrested,” he said.
The IPO was led in evidence by the Lagos State Chief Counsel, Mr Babatunde Sunmonu.
Justice Akintoye adjourned the case until Feb. 7 and Feb. 13 for the continuation of trial.
The accused was arraigned in 2016 on a charge of murder to which he pleaded not guilty.
