A man has been arrested at Bomadi Local Government Area of Delta State for the murder of a housewife, Mrs. Trust-ere College, who was beheaded, penultimate week, allegedly for ritual purposes.
The deceased was killed at her farm while she was fetching fire wood.
With the wounds on her face, it was learnt that she probably did not give in easily to her killer.
Luck, however, ran out of suspect, when he went to the Bomadi General Hospital, after allegedly committing the crime to treat the wounds he sustained in the struggle with the deceased, but was turned down by the officials, who suspected him because of the nature of the injury.
