Speaking on the incident, the murder suspect, Ochonogor, age, 25, said he has been dating his late girlfriend for three years now, adding that she came from Asaba to Benin to visit him and while they were together, she accused him of being a Kidnapper.
The Uniport undergraduate of the Applied And Industrial Chemistry Department said he was angered by that accusation.
“I have been dating her for three years now and she accused me of being a Kidnapper. I asked her why must she be accusing me of such when we have been together for such a time.
“I am not a Kidnapper and some of the members of her family know me very well.
“They accused me of being a Kidnapper, how can a Kidnapper be dating somebody?”He asked rhetorically.
Ochonogor said he didn’t kill his girlfriend because he was jealous that she wanted to get married to another man.
The Commissioner of Police, Dankwara Mohammed said the matter will be charged to court for prosecution….CONTINUE READING
Mohammed further calls for vital information from the members of the public to enable them nip crime and criminality in the state in the bud.
