Jeremiah Sodiq Igomigoh, 49, also known as Muhammad Igomigoh, has reportedly killed his ex-wife, Nnenna Laura Ogbonna, 44, and himself in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, over issues bordering on tax refund fraud. At the time of the incident, the couple had separated following series of irreconcilable differences brothering on finances.
A source told Nigerian Trend that: “A Nigerian man from Delta state killed his wife an Igbo lady in Baltimore around 12pm/1pm and shot himself as well in the presence of his mother in law and 4-month old child. The guy married her here and they both had 2 kids but unknown to her he also has a wife with three kids in Nigeria.
The guy had filled for them and she accidentally found out, which was what led to her leaving the guy and renting an apartment in Essex. The problem was that the guy who was a correction officer filed tax returns late January 2016 and used both his 3 children from the first Nigerian wife plus Nnenna’s first child. That aggravated Nnenna who then reported it to IRS.
IRS then wrote the guy to refund the money or face the consequences.” The Baltimore County Police declared the incident a murder-suicide and said Sodiq visited Nnenna’s home and the two argued over financial matters. During the altercation, he shot her before turning the gun on himself.
Nnenna, 44, was a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). Baltimore Police also said the handgun Igomigoh used was legally registered to him. Igomigoh also had a carry permit for the gun, which he used in his job as a security guard.
