The Delta state police command has arrested two persons, including a prominent Abraka herbalist, politician and chief, Kings Okpako also known as Kuti, in connection with the ritual killing of an 18-year old girl, Favour Ogheneyenrowho.
The corpse of Ogheneyenrowho had been found tied up in a ‘Ghana-must-go’ bag and dropped at a refuse dump site behind Ozoro Park in Abraka on June 18, 2019, with her pubic hair shaved off.
The police had been on the trail of Henry Ikechukwu, who is Ogheneyenrowho’s boyfriend, with whom she was last seen by her older sister, Maureen.
He was eventually tracked down and arrested on 28th of June, 2019 and upon interrogation, he confessed to have invited the deceased for an outing on 17th of June, 2019, from where he lured her and handed her over to Kuti.
He said the herbalist gave him the assignment to get the deceased for him. According to him, this is the third lady he has handed over to him (Kuti), but the first death recorded so far.
