On the 18th of June 2019, a sack bag containing a lifeless body of a teenage girl of about 18 years old was found in a heap of dust bin in Abraka.
On inspection of the corpse by the police, marks of violence were obvious on the deceased neck which implied she could have been killed by unknown person or persons.
Subsequently, in the course of police investigation, the deceased male friend, one Henry Ikechukwu, aged 32 years old, who was last seen with the deceased on 17th of June, 2019 and had been on the run since the incident, was tracked down and arrested on 28th of June, 2019.
On interrogation, he confessed to have invited the deceased for an outing on 17th of June, 2019, from where he lured her and handed her over to a prominent chief in the same Abraka community, who gave him the assignment to get the deceased for him.
The said chief has also been arrested and the two suspects are presently in police custody pending investigation. They will soon appear in court immediately after the completion of the ongoing Police investigation.
