Nigerian national, Innocent Nwayo (31) who murdered Cecilia Chong belonging to the Kuki-Chin community on May 20 was arrested from south Delhi, police said Monday. Innocent Nwayo was arrested Sunday from Kotla Mubarakpur when he came to visit his friend Prince Michael, police said. Before coming to India, Nwayo worked in the Nigerian police force.
He killed Cecilia and left the travel bag containing her body in his rented house in west Delhi’s Uttam Nagar. After the murder he fled to Mumbai. “The murder took place after the two entered into a scuffle as the victim suspected that Nwayo was attracted to a girl who came to their house along with three more friends April 28,” a police official said.
“The body was found in a black travel bag. When the bag was opened it contained a decomposed body of a woman found wrapped in a blanket and tied with a plastic rope,” police said.
Cecelia worked in a beauty parlour at Munirka. She was in a live-in relationship with the Nigerian national, the police said. She hailed from Myanmar but was brought up in Manipur. She came to Delhi in 2005 with her husband, whom she divorced last year.
Police said after killing her, Nwayo bought a travel bag from INA market to dispose of the body.
The body of Cecilia was buried at Dwarka Christian Cemetery May 24, where a funeral service was jointly conducted by the Delhi Police, Kuki Students Organisation, Delhi, Kuki Students Democratic Front, Burma and Tedim Chin Students Association, Delhi.
