Two suspects arrested over prospective corps members’ murder in Benue
Two suspects have reportedly been arrested by the police in connection with the murder of a 24-year-old lady, Joy Onoh in Makurdi, Benue state.
WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that the Mass CommunicaJoy Onohtion graduate from Benue State University, who was expecting to be mobilised for National Youth Service Corps, was raped and killed by some criminals who posed as customers and lured her to their house.
The assailants were reported to have dumped her corpse at a nearby bush around the Federal Low Cost Estate, North Bank, a suburb of Makurdi where police recovered her body last Wednesday.
According to PUNCH, sources said the suspects were arrested at a house close to where the remains of the lady was found.
One of the sources said the suspects were arrested through the help of neighbours who gave information about their activities on the day Joy was killed.
The source said, “One other thing that gave them out was the foot steps of people that were traced to the house, you know it rained in the early hours of the day the corpse of the lady was found.”
The two suspects were reportedly being interrogated by the police.
However, the Police Public Relations Officer, Catherine Anene, a deputy superintendent of police, neither confirmed nor denied the report.
