A suspected Internet fraudster aka yahoo boy allegedly killed his twin brother at Oleh, headquarters of Isoko South Local Government Y, Delta State.
He has since been arrested by the police and investigations are ongoing to uncover the motive behind the killing. Sources however, link it ritual purposes.
It was gathered that the suspect was found with a dog and the decomposing body of his brother in their apartment at Old Olomoro Road on Monday, after the offensive smell caught the attention of the neighbours.
“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 said.
The source mentioned that the corpse of the deceased had been sent to a nearby mortuary while the suspect was arrested with his dog.
The Police Public Relations Officer of the state command, Mr. Bright Edafe, confirmed that investigations are being carried out to get to the root of 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.”
