and murdered a 300-level student of Delta State University,

Thursday, less than two weeks after suspected Yahoo Plus

murder allegedly slumped and died when police detectives
trapped him at his hideout in Abraka, but four other
suspects, including an herbalist, two private security
guards are in police custody at the Police Headquarters,
Asaba, Delta State.
Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Delta Command,
DSP Andrew Aniamaka, confirmed the death of the
mastermind to Vanguard.
While two of the suspects, a private security guard and
internet fraudster, who spoke to our reporter, admitted they
