Edo Police Command has arrested three people, Destiny Osa, Etim Zion and Samuel Jeremiah in connection with the murder of a still unknown trader in the Orhiomwon local government area of the state.
It was gathered that the three suspects approached a woman who was on her way to the market, confiscated the amount of N30,000 before dragging her to a nearby bush, where they alternately raped her and left her life-threatening injuries.
The woman was said to have died from injuries sustained during the attack and assault.
A local vigilance group arrested one of the suspects, Osu, who was handed over to Ugo Police Department officers, who in turn handed him over to the Edo State Police Abduction and Cyber Crime Department for discreet investigations.
The woman’s body has since been stored in an undiscovered morgue for autopsy and further investigation.
