The suspected killer of Jennifer Anthony, the 300-level UNIJos student who was killed by unknown persons for ritual has been nabbed.
Police operatives in Plateau State paraded the 20-year-old suspect, Moses Okon, who was arrested in connection with Anthony’s brutal murder and her body parts found missing.
The murdered girl was said to have been lured into a hotel by the suspect said to be her boyfriend, who is also a student of Zoology department University of Jos, where she was brutally murdered.
The suspect was said to have drugged the lady and used various instruments to remove her eyes and other vital parts of her body before he bolted away from the hotel after the act.
Plateau State Commissioner of Police, Batholomew Onyeka speaking with newsmen shortly after parading the suspect, said that the “suspected killer of Miss Jenifer Anthony whose lifeless body was found mutilated on a new year day at Domus Pacis Guest House, Jos by a man named Moses Oko has been apprehended” in Benue State.
He said, “The man aged 20 years, suspected to be her boyfriend fled after committing the crime, the Command in a bid to arrest the perpetrator launched an aggressive manhunt on the suspect and tactically trailed him to Benue State where he was arrested by hawked-eye police operatives of the Command”
Onyeka said the suspect will be arraigned as soon as the investigation is completed and urged members of the public who still have more information on how the incident happened to contact the command.
