The Rivers State Police Command, has arrested two men in connection to the killings of eight young women in Port Harcourt which started in July.
The State Commissioner of Police, Mustapha Dandaura said one suspect was arrested in Kaduna while the other was arrested after a lady complained that a man was trying to lure her to a hotel with a promise to pay her N30,000.
He said “In one of the cases, the actual murder suspect has been arrested and is making useful confessions. He would have been paraded today, but we are still working on some clues given by him that may aid our investigation.”
While many Nigerians have marked this out as a serial killer handwork, the Police have blamed the killings on “desperate cultists and ritualists.”
He also said that as a way of preventing a recurrence of such, all hotels have been given a 30 day ultimatum to install CCTV cameras in the lobby and to also confirm guests phone numbers and identity cards and the registration of visitors.
