Police in rivers state says it has arrested two persons in connection to the serial killing going on in the state.
The state commissioner of police in rivers State MAUSTAPHA DANDAURA Stated this at a press briefing in port Harcourt.
He said only eight women have been killed so far in what appears to be some kind of cultism and ritual. As no body parts of the victims were removed in all the deaths recorded.
He said so far preliminary investigation shows that these victims are drugged and sexed before strangulation occurs with a piece of white clothes tied to the victim’s neck, legs and sometimes their stomach ‘’we believe that these victims if conscious must raise alarm as no woman can keep quiet when in distress or harassed and murdered without putting up a fight.
