Police arrest man who allegedly killed girlfriend as family awaits autopsy report

“Tega is not known to be violent; how could she get herself drunk, fall and give up the ghost just like that?

The Delta State Police Command has arrested a man, Morrison Okomor, suspected to have killed his girlfriend, Tega Okpako, in Asaba.

The suspect, who was detained at the Police ‘A’ Division in Asaba, however claimed Okpako got drunk, slumped and died.

A source said her family became inquisitive when they saw her body at the Federal Medical Centre, Asaba.

A family member said; “We were surprised when we saw her corpse at the FMC with a deep hole in her forehead connoting an attack because such a hole cannot be a result of a fall.

“Tega is not known to be violent; how could she get herself drunk, fall and give up the ghost just like that?

“We are not going to allow the matter to lie low because you can’t just take somebody’s life in the name of love. The police are on top of it now as the boy is claiming innocence because Tega is dead and the dead don’t talk.”

The State police spokesperson, DSP Bright Edafe, confirmed the development on Monday.

He said, “The suspect has been arrested over the matter, but I cannot say he was the one that killed her until the result of the autopsy is released.”
