Professor Cheung Kie-Chung

Professor Cheung Kie-Chung has been arrested on suspicion of killing his wife after police found a body stuffed into a suitcase in his office, the latest grisly murder to transfix the crowded city of Hong Kong.

Officers discovered the body of a woman, wearing only her underwear and with electric wire around her neck, hidden in a suitcase inside a large wooden box in 53-year-old Professor Cheung Kie-Chung office at the University of Hong Kong.

The associate professor from the Department of Mechanical Engineering had reported his wife missing on Monday 20 August, claiming she had not returned home following an argument.

Police said they became suspicious of Cheung after CCTV footage failed to show his wife leaving their home, while Professor Cheung Kie-Chung was also seen moving a large wooden box out of the premises.

On Tuesday afternoon police searched Cheung’s office, a five minute drive from the dormitory on the leafy campus where he lives with his wife and children.

There was blood seeping out from the suitcase and it stank,” superintendent Law Kwok-hoi told reporters Tuesday night.

He said the victim might have been strangled, but the identity and the cause of death still needed to be confirmed by a post-mortem examination.

He added that Professor Cheung Kie-Chung told investigators he had a dispute with his wife on the night she disappeared over the toilet hygiene of their elder daughter.

Professor Cheung Kie-Chung is also the warden of the dormitory where his family lives and a member of the university’s governing council.

The latest murder comes as another Hong Kong academic is currently on trial for using a yoga ball filled with carbon monoxide to kill his wife and daughter.

The southern Chinese city, famed for its cramped housing but low crime rate, is occasionally rocked by high-profile murders that dominate media coverage and often involve gruesome attempts to hide or dispose of bodies.

In 2016, British banker Rurik Jutting was jailed for life for the murder of two Indonesian women in Hong Kong, stuffing one of their bodies in a suitcase and placing it on his balcony.

The year before, a local man was jailed for chopping up his parents and storing their body parts in a freezer.

Wabba said that the CWC meeting focused on the two challenges and solutions to them while assuring Nigerians that it would also mobilize its members, civil society allies and other social partners to try to resist the policies.

“We are surprised that at a time other countries across the world are giving palliatives to their citizens to cushion the effect of COVID-19, Nigerians are asked to pay more for fuel and electricity.

“In furtherance to this, the CWC also resolved to convene a meeting of the NEC in line with our constitution, on Sept. 22, 2020.

“This is to also give effect to the decision because the proposed action will commence on Monday, September 28, 2020 `if the issues are not addressed,’’ he said.

He added that the declining economic power was evident among many as the N30,000 minimum wage could is not sufficient for many workers and their families hence the ultimatum.

“Unfortunately the negotiation ended in a deadlock. And so the one-week warning strike will commence on Wednesday.

“With the facts before us, Ogun state is not the poorest in South-West. So, all excuses are not acceptable, what the government said was that minimum wage will have to be delayed so that they can do certain things and we said no, enough is enough,” Bankole said.

Recall that on Tuesday, some workers stormed the governor’s office in Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta to protest against the failure of the government to implement payment of the new minimum wage and pension reform bill among others.

The talks between the Federal Government and the Organized Labour over the removal of petrol subsidy and the increase in electricity tariffs, reportedly ended in a deadlock on Monday.

The talks between the Federal Government and the Nigeria Labour Congress over the removal of petrol subsidy and the increase in electricity tariffs, reportedly ended in a deadlock on Monday.

The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva, urged the labour to show more understanding with the government over its policies.

According to Sylva, Nigeria lost about N1billion daily between 2016 and 2019, as a result of fuel subsidy and N3.74billion daily before 2016.

However, The President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba, argued that the recent hike in the cost of fuel and electricity tariffs further aggravated the economic hardship faced by Nigerians.

Wabba said that workers who have lost their jobs and source of income due to COVID-19, are being forced to make further sacrifices.

“The issues that constitute the price are part of the inefficiency in the system which the government hitherto has been paying and christened subsidy, Nigeria should refine its products.

“At this point, there is nothing on the table to reduce the effects on workers and their families because they have been pushed to the wall and are already at the edge,” he said.
