She said, "The lady has been arrested and she is in Panti. The incident happened in our mother's house, not on the (Caleb University) campus. She came around to visit him. We have not ascertained what led to the argument. We have been trying to find out, but she is not saying the truth.
"They had been together for about three years and they have a kid. She is a babymama. The boy is one year and six months old. That was the major thing that bound them together.
"We are ready to follow the case to a logical conclusion. We have been asking her what led to his death because there is no injury on his body"
The sister, however, declined replies to further inquiries on the matter, saying “this is a critical period for us and we are being very careful. That is all I can tell you for now"

Chidinma was not home, so he called her to ask her where she was. They planned to meet at one place. When they came back, they were with fast foods and they went to their room.
