Another horrific case of ritual murder happened in Jos, Plateau State as a 300 level student of the University of Jos, identified as Jennifer Anthony, was lured to a hotel, drugged, and killed, by her alleged boyfriend who she was last seen with.
The Plateau State police command in Jos has confirmed the gruesome murder of the student and reported that her eyes were plucked out and other vital parts of her body mutilated by the murderer.
The incident occurred at a hotel in Jos on Jan. 1.
ASP Ubah Ogaba, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Police Command in Plateau on Wednesday, said:
”The Command is aware of the ugly incident which took place on Jan. 1, at the Domus Pacis lodge. The suspect, who is at large, went away with all means to identify the victim.
“The Commissioner of Police has ordered a discrete investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident and to arrest the perpetrators of that dastardly act.
”’ We promise to furnish the media with more details on the incident as it unfolds.”
He also said that the corpse has been deposited at the mortuary of the Plateau Specialist Hospital, Jos
When the Police began investigations, they discovered that the suspect left the hotel without leaving any clue about his whereabouts. The victim’s body was found by her friend, who went in search of her in the hotel after days of not hearing from her. On getting to the hotel, the victim’s friend found the body of Jennifer and alerted the hotel management, who summoned the police for investigations.
How the suspect was able to leave the hotel untraceable.
The Police, during the investigation, discovered that the suspect (boyfriend) removed virtually everything that might be used to trace him including the lady’s phone and other valuables in her bag.
The suspect must have drafted out his entire plan after killing his girlfriend. Which means that his location, and personal information including his phone number must have been blocked and nearly untraceable.
Taking the victim’s phone and her valuables was an advantage for the suspect’s easy escape. Now that almost all evidence has been wiped out, the Police should request for a CCTV footage of the hotel and the number plate of the vehicle used to convey the victim to the hotel.
If the hotel doesn’t have a CCTV footage, then the police should request for the details used by the suspect to lodge into the hotel room.
