The suspect was arrested after concerned neighbours tipped the police on a possible murder after they saw him burying the corpse early in the morning.
A hotel employee identified as Victor said the suspect picked the yet to be identified victim from a brothel.
“He had solicited for the services of the girl from a brothel, where they had earlier engaged in high use of hard drugs and alcohol before taking her to his house for the night,” a staff at the hotel who simply gave his name as Victor stated.
“Efe took her to his house located at Okorodafe Street. At the house, the victim was said to have died and for reasons best known to him (Efe), he went to bury her but someone who saw him during the act, reported him to the police who arrested him the next day.”
The senior officer at the Ughelli Area Command who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed the arrest adding that the suspect has been transferred to the Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation.
