Police say Henry has confessed that he was the boyfriend of the married woman.
He was also accused of conspiring with Taiwo, who happens to be a nurse to kill the victim. Henry and Taiwo were accused of administering the Lagatine injection to incapacitate the victim so as to kidnap her and thereafter, extort money from her rich husband, which led to her unfortunate demise.
