The Delta State Police Command said it arrested a man identified as Mr Nicholas Charles for stabbing a family friend to death over a disagreement in Asaba, the state capital.

Mr. Abaniwonda Olufemi, the State Commissioner of Police, revealed this while parading suspects of various crimes at the state Police headquarters, Asaba.

He said the deceased, identified as Ngozi William, had visited the suspect and his wife at their residence when she met her untimely death.

He said: “On April 5, 2024, at about 2300 hours, one Ngozi William visited a family friend, one Mr. Nicholas Charles, and his wife at 10 Adizue Onochei Street, Asaba.

“While the said Ngozi was in the apartment, a disagreement ensued between herself and the said Nicholas, which took them to the kitchen.

“During the course of the disagreement, the suspect, Mr. Nicholas, picked a knife on the fridge and stabbed the victim, which led to her death. The suspect is in custody, and the investigation is ongoing.

“Due to the rate of kidnapping in Ughelli and its environs, I detailed a special team to work in synergy with the newly posted DPO in Ughelli Police Division with a clear mandate to fish out the faceless kidnappers and ensure that they are all brought to book.

“Consequently, on 8/4/2024, the operatives on the special assignment working on credible intelligence stormed one of the hotels in Udu LGA and arrested a notorious kidnapper.

“Upon his arrest, the suspect gave useful information that led to the recovery of one pump action gun loaded with four live cartridges, one Beretta pistol, and three rounds of 9mm ammunition.”
