A suspected yahoo boy simply identified as Victor Ifakachukwu has been arrested in Benin City for allegedly stabbed his girlfriend to death in his apartment.
The suspect has been hospitalized due to severe injuries he sustained during what appeared to be a deadly knife attack in his cozy apartment.
Police said the suspect, Victor Ifakachukwu is being closely monitored at an undisclosed hospital, hoping to account for his crime whenever he regains consciousness.
The bloody incident occurred at No.10, Osahon Street, Ogheghe Quarters, Off Sapele Road, Benin City.
One of two blood-stained knives were recovered from the apartment.
They were said to have already bolted themselves inside the house when the violence broke out.
As at press time today, his late girlfriend was yet to be identified.
Police said two blood-stained knives, one laptop, two iPhones and one Nokia phone were recovered from the apartment.
While confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, Edo State Police Command, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, said a full-scale investigation had begun.
He said detectives would unravel what transpired between the two lovebirds.
Meanwhile, some security personnel who joined in the evacuation of the girl’s corpse said no part was missing from the deceased.
“When we arrived the house, Omo, blood was flowing like water, I believe they started stabbing themselves when quarrel erupted between them.
“I suspect something went wrong and the girl fought back with her last power.
“When the boy regains consciousness, he will tell us how many of them were in the house and what actually happened,” they noted.
We decided to withhold the use of very graphic pictures of the deceased girl and scene of alleged murder.
