A young man who reportedly killed his teenage girlfriend and dumped her corpse by the roadside along Siluko road in the outskirts of Benin City, has been arrested. Operatives of the homicide section of the Edo State Police Command have apprehended a 19-year-old young man identified as Junior Omo-Shaba over the murder of his 18-year-old lover, at Akugbe street, off Siluko road in Benin city.
It was gathered that the suspect has been in a relationship with the young girl whose name was given as Matilda Odiri since April, 2018.
Trouble started when the female lover suspected the man of dating another girl, a situation which sparked off serious crises forcing the man to use kitchen knife to stab her to death.
After the murder, he then quickly dragged her body and dumped it by the roadside around 2:00am to prove that she was killed by unknown persons.
