Politician’s wife raped, murdered in Benin City

The pregnant wife of Comrade Promise Igbinevbo, Mrs Queen Igbinevbo has been reported dead after she was raped and murdered at her home.

It was reported that the deceased was alone at her home in Benin City when her assailants gained entrance into the home through the ceiling.

In the report by LIB, a source who spoke with the publication stated that the intruders had come in search of her husband, Comrade Promise Igbinevbo, who is a Governorship Campaign Coordinator. However, when they didn’t find him at home on May 20, 2020, they raped and murdered his wife.

Mrs Queen, known to be a very religious woman in her neighbourhood, was discovered by neighbours who were worried that they have not seen her in a while.

A source said,
“When we could not see Queen, I came to check if she was fine, because she lives alone, we met her naked, blood and foam was coming out of her mouth. There was semen all over her body.

“We had to call her husband who is staying in another place.”

The source said neighbours reported seeing strange men walking up and down the street just days before the tragic incident. They also said three people have been arrested in relation to Mrs Queen Igbinevbo’s brutal murder.

The murder of Queen Igbinevbo sparked a demonstration in Benin. On Friday, June 5, protesters took to Edo State Police Command to demand justice for the deceased.
