A suspected fraudster, who allegedly murders his twin brother at Oleh, headquarters of Isoko South Local Government Area, Delta State, has been apprehended by police personels.
However, the reason for the murder is undisclosed at press time, sources said it might have been carried out for ritual goals.
The suspect as was said, was found with a dog and the decomposing body of his twin in their apartment at Old Olomoro Road, Monday, after neighbours perceived a offensive smell coming out from the flat.
“The house was locked for some days and after some time, the people living in the compound began to perceive foul smell that attracted flies around the apartment.
“The neighbours then alerted the police at the Oleh divisional headquarters. The door was forced open and they found him sitting close to the decomposing body of his twin brother. A dog was also found in the house,” a source, who craved anonymity, said.
Nonetheless, the source said the corpse of the deceased had been put in a mortuary in the area while the suspect and his dog were apprehended by the forces.
Additionally, while verifying the incident yesterday, the Police Public Relations Officer of the state command, Mr Bright Edafe, said the police had commenced investigation into the matter.
He, however, added that “For now, there is no evidence that it was for ritual purpose. When they broke into the house, they saw the decomposing body and the twin brother.”
