The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command has arrested 33-year-old Joseph Mbounu Ifeanyi in connection with the death of one Evelyn Omape Alifia Yakubu in Lugbe Area of the FCT.

It was gathered that the suspect was in a relationship with the deceased and lived with her until he allegedly killed and locked up the body in their apartment before fleeing.

The principal suspect, an Electrical Technician, was the last person with the deceased. Joseph also called to inform the deceased family members of her demise and had since been out of reach until his arrest, the Police said.

According to the Police, the suspect was arrested following a report by one Aduojo Daniel Yakubu at the Trademore Division Police Headquarters.

The Command Spokesperson, DSP Josephine Adeh, in a statement, said all effort to take the corpse to the Morgue for the necessary actions by the Police proved abortive as the family of the deceased insisted on immediately burying the corps due to the state of the body at discovery point.

The case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for further investigation.

The Commissioner of Police, FCT Police Command, CP Babaji Sunday, while sending his condolence with the family and friends of the deceased, assured that no stone would be left unturned in unraveling the cause of the death of Evelyn and ensuring that justice is served.

Also, the Command stated that reports alleging that the Police demanded the sum of three hundred thousand naira (N300,000.00) from the family of the deceased, which slowed down investigations into the matter, is untrue and unfounded.
