Tragedy as Man Beheads His Own Friend With a Cutlass in Edo

A 20-year-old man identified as Mr. Safas Afa has been arrested in Edo State.

The man was arrested by the police in the statet over the al­leged murder and robbery of a commercial motorcyclist in Oko­mu community in Ovia South West Local Government Area.

Afa who hails from Benue State was among the 87 suspected criminals paraded by command for offences ranging from kid­napping, armed robbery, cultism, illegal possession of firearms, community crisis to murder.

Narrating how he killed the victim and took his motorcycle and phone for sale to a nearby community at N160, 000, Afa said that he cut the deceased’s neck with a cutlass inside a rub­ber plantation.

He said: “On November 3, 2016, I told my friend, Aniete Okon, to carry me with his mo­torcycle to the farm. On our way I saw a cutlass inside a rubber plantation, I told him to stop, I collected the cutlass and cut his neck, took his motorcycle and phone.
“As I was taking the bike to another village to sell, Okomu security held me at the gate, I am a rubber taper Sir,” the suspect said.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr Haliru Gwandu, paraded the 87 suspects along with arms and ammunition at the command headquarters in Benin City.

Gwandu said that the suspects were arrested at the different lo­cations in the state following a tip-off and special security mea­sures he adopted.

He called on members of the public to assist the police with information that would enhance security of lives and property in Edo State.
