Imo State Police Command on Monday arrested one Chukwuemeka Eze for allegedly raping and killing a 27-year-old female, Lilian Mgbanwa, who just completed her National Youth Service Corps.
Eze, who hails from Mgbidi in Oru West Local Government Area of the state, was paraded by the Force Public relations Officer, Frank Mba, at the Police Command Headquarters in Owerri, the state capital.
The police spokesman informed that Eze was arrested after an indigene of the community hinted the police.
Mba, also disclosed that the suspect has so far confirmed to have committed the crime and also taken the police to the scene where the remains of the victim were buried.
According to the force’s publicist, “Not only did Chukwuemeka Eze rape the innocent young woman at the end of that sexual assault, he also went ahead to cover his crime by murdering the innocent woman.
“But like we have always told people, there are no perfect crimes anywhere in the world.”
“After committing the crime, the suspect was said to have taken the victim’s phone to a shop where he intended to charge it.
“A very observant Nigerian who owns the shop looked at Chukwuemeka Eze who had brought this phone to his shop and was very convinced from his character, that he probably may not be the owner of the phone.
“As soon as Emeka turned his back, this very patriotic Nigerian turned on the phone and the first call that came was from a blood relative of the murdered female who requested to speak to her sister.
“It was in the course of that conversation that it became very clear that Emeka was not the owner of the phone”, Mba narrated
