The Edo State Police Command on Tuesday, paraded one Victor Ochonogor, a self-acclaimed 400-level student of the University of Port-Harcourt and suspected internet scammer over the alleged killing of his girlfriend in Benin City.
Recall that a suspected ‘Yahoo boy’ was reported to have stabbed his girlfriend, one Success Regha, to death in his Benin City apartment.
The incident was said to have occurred at 10, Osahon Street, Ogheghe Quarters, off Sapele Road, Benin City.
Ochonogor and his late girlfriend were said to have already locked themselves inside the house when the violence broke out.
It was learnt that the terrible incident was reported to the police by Ochonogor’s landlord.
Parading the suspect at the police command, the Commissioner of Police, Dankwara Mohammed, said the matter was reported to the police at about 4 p.m. on Monday, August 21, 2023, adding that the police swung into action immediately.
Speaking on the incident, the murder suspect, Ochonogor, age, 25, said he has been dating his late girlfriend Success Regha, for three years now, adding that she came from Asaba to Benin to visit him and while they were together, she accused him of being a Kidnapper.
The self acclaimed Uniport undergraduate of Applied And Industrial Chemistry department, said he was angered by that accusation.
“I have been dating her for three years now and she accused me of being a Kidnapper. I asked her why must she being accusing me of such when we have been together for such a time?
“I am not a Kidnapper and some of the members of her family know me very well.
“They accused me of being a Kidnapper, how can a Kidnapper be dating somebody?”He asked rhetorically.

The Commissioner of Police, Dankwara Mohammed said the matter will be charged to court for prosecution.
Mohammed further calls for vital information from the members of the public to enable them nip crime and criminality in the bud
