The Delta State Police Command has arrested a man, Morrison Okomor, for allegedly killing his lover, Miss Tega Okpako.
Confirming the incident, the command spokesperson, Bright Edafe, said the suspect was arrested on Thursday in Asaba, the state capital.
It was gathered that the victim’s family alerted the police about the incident after suspecting a fowl play when they saw Tega’s body at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Asaba, where it was deposited.
They accused Bright of using their daughter for ritual purposes.
Acording to a family source: “We were surprised when we saw her body at FMC with a very deep hole on her forehead suggesting an attack because such a hole cannot be as a result of a fall. Tega is not known to be violent and how can she get drunk, then suddenly fall down and die just like that?”
