Operatives of the Nigeria Police, Delta State Command, have arrested a suspected killer of the 29-year-old lady whose private organs were cut off in her home at Mosagar, Ethiope West Local Government Area of Delta State.
The suspect, whose details were not divulged, is said to be currently cooling his feet at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID).
Acting Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Bright Edafe, on Thursday, June 3, 2021, confirmed the arrest of the suspect in connection with the crime.
“One suspect has been arrested and transferred to SCID,” he quipped.
Recall that it was reported that the victim simply identified as Blessing, was found dead, on Tuesday, in her apartment with her nipples and other private parts removed.
Neighbours had told journalists that the deceased was last seen on the night of Saturday, May 29, after returning home with a man.
Worried over her unusual incommunicado, the concerned neighbours who began to perceive an offensive odour from her room said to be locked from outside, invited the police who broke into the room and met her lifeless body mutilated.
DSP Edafe had on Wednesday, enjoined the neighbours and journalists who interviewed some of the neighbours to help the police track down the suspect.
