The Police have found the body of a 36-year-old businesswoman, Obiageli Onakanse, who went missing two weeks ago, in a shallow grave in Asaba, Oshimili South Local Council, Delta State
The Deputy Commissioner of Police, Faleye Olaleye, who disclosed this, said arrests have been made.
He revealed that the victim, a popular interior decorator, who lived in a rented apartment, in Government Reserved Area (GRA) of the state capital, was discovered with head injuries and several machete cuts on her body.
“That has led to the arrest of her co-tenant, Nonso Ekene, a Nollywood movie director, and the security man, Isaac Sunday, who confessed to the crime.
“A female relative of the victim simply identified as Uche, told journalists that the deceased was her father’s younger sister,” he said.
He further said the family members became suspicious after her calls went unanswered for weeks.
“She was discussing her marriage plans with an uncle on the telephone, prior to her sudden disappearance. My uncle was worried after repeated calls to get an update of her proposed marriage plans fixed for December, were not returned,” the relative said.
