A 24-year-old student of the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) has been arrested by the police in Edo State for allegedly stabbing his girlfriend to death, following a report made by the landlord of the suspect.
Penpushing reports that the Commissioner of Police, Muhammed Dankwara, made this known to journalists on Tuesday adding that the landlord, told the police that the student stabbed the lady several times in the neck and the chest with a knife.
‘Police operatives immediately swung into action, arrested the suspect, recovered two knives, and rushed the victim to the hospital where her body was deposited in a morgue. Items recovered from the suspect were two blood-stained knives, two iPhones, one Nokia phone, one laptop, and two ATM cards. The case was transferred to the homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation Department, Benin. The suspect will be arraigned for murder soon’, Dankwara said.
Penpushing further reports that the suspect while speaking with journalists said the deceased travelled from Asaba to spend some time with him in Benin when he found some fetish substances in her possession, adding that this led to an argument that resulted in the girl stabbing him and that he stabbed her back.
The Commissioner of Police in another development, announced the arrest of a 25-year-old who allegedly defrauded an 18-year-old of N5.2 million, adding that fake denominations of foreign currencies and charms used for hypnotising and manipulating victims were recovered from the suspect.
