During interrogation, the suspect admitted to committing the crime, Oyeyemi said.

However, he said Ikenna did not commit the crime alone. He had an accomplice who’s currently on the run.

According to the police PRO, the suspect also told the police that after raping the victim, they decided to kill her because she recognized them.

He explained that Ikenna’s parents, who likened his arrest as “good radiance to bad rubbish,” have given up on him because he is the family’s black sheep.

They also pleaded with the police authorities to ensure that he receives the necessary penalty.
