The Bayelsa State Police Command has arrested a 27-year-old man identified as Joseph Fekali who allegedly murdered his ‘girlfriend,’ Kate Ogwoh, a graduate of Novena University, Delta State.
Fekala, who hails from Ikibiri Community, in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa State allegedly strangled 26-year-old Ogwoh, to death on Thursday night, July 28.
After allegedly killing her for yet-to-be verified reasons, Joseph reportedly buried her remains in a shallow grave in his bedroom.
However, neighbours of the suspected killer claimed that the scene of the killing suggested that his intention was to use the late Miss Kate for a money ritual.
Another version of the report claimed that the suspect is not a Yahoo boy but a youth pastor and that he killed her over N50,000 debt.
Spokesperson of the command, Asinim Butwat, who confirmed the incident in a statement on Friday, July 29, said the suspect has been arrested following a tip-off by neighbours.
