Three murder suspects have been arrested by the Delta State Police Command for being accomplices in the decomposing corpse of a lady found under the bed of a hotel in Sapele.
The deceased identified as Abina Isaac who was found dead in Ebis Hotel in Amukpe area of Sapele as reported by Within Nigeria earlier this month. The father of the deceased is a Ghanaian while the mother is a native of Delta state.
The Police Public Relation Officer in the state, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya confirmed the arrest to newsmen but did not reveal the identity of the suspects.
Addressing journalists, DSP Onome stated as follows;
“We got him through his phone number that took us to Abuja where we apprehended him and from there we brought him back to Delta,” Onovwakpoyeya said.
“The politician is currently helping us with investigation towards unraveling the true cause of the incident. We are detaining him at the Sapele Area Command, and we shall transfer the case to Asaba (State Police Command) once we are done for prosecution,” he added.
The alleged politician, who reportedly led the police operatives from Sapele Area Command to arrest two other suspects from Benin, was tracked and nabbed in Abuja.
The trio are now in the custody of Sapele Command while further diligent investigation is said to be on course
