Fifteen Days After, Police Arrest Suspected Killer Of Fresh UNIBEN Graduate In Delta

Lucky Obukohwo, Reporting

The operatives of the Edo State Police command have arrested the killer of the graduate of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), Glory Adekolure.

Adekolure was said to have gone to school (UNIBEN) for her final clearance on June 13, 2024, but her remains were found under a tree on a street in the Iyowa Community of Benin City, the Edo State capital.

Fifteen days after Miss Adekolure’s death, the Edo State Commissioner of Police, Funsho Adegboye, said the suspected murderer was nabbed in Asaba, the Delta State capital.

He said the suspect is yet to be paraded, adding that investigation is still ongoing into the incident.

According to the CP, the suspect confessed to the killings of other young women.

Recall that Glory, aged 22, was said to have been on her way home from where she went to process her clearance when she was accosted, tortured and raped to death by yet-to-be-identified persons, and her remains dropped close to her mother’s house.

Recall also, in a statement, the Edo State Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Chris Nehikhare, who expressed shock and sadness over the incident, noted that the State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki has ordered the State Commissioner of Police to fish out the perpetrators of the dastardly and unconscionable act within the next seven days.
