The Edo State Police Command, on Tuesday, 29 August 2023, paraded a 400-Level student at the University of Port Harcourt, identified as Victor Ochonogor suspected to be a ‘Yahoo boy,’ who allegedly stabbed his girlfriend to death in his Benin City residence.
It was gathered that the incident happened at 10, Osahon Street, Ogheghe Quarters, by Sapele Road, Benin City.
Ochonogor and his late girlfriend, it was learnt, had locked themselves inside the house when the violence broke out. The landlord was said to have been informed of the discordance between them.
The Commissioner of Police, Dankwara Mohammed, said the matter was reported to the police about 4p.m., on August 21, 2023, and they swung into action immediately.
The suspect, Ochonogor, age, 25, said: “I have been dating her for three years now and she accused me of being a kidnapper. I asked her why she must be accusing me of such things when we had been together for such a time.
“I am not a kidnapper and some of the members of her family know me very well.”
According to the suspect, he didn’t kill her but was uneasy with her telling him that she wanted to get married to another man.
