Gracious David West, the man behind the unsettling recent serial killings of young women in Port Harcourt, capital of Rivers State, has confessed to his crime after being arrested by the Nigerian Police Force (NPF).

KanyiDaily had reported that Gracious David West who is also a member of the Degbam cult group was arrested along East-West Road en route to Uyo from Port Harcourt on Thursday, September 19, 2019.

Following his arrest, David West has told the Nigerian police that he used pillowcases to tie a victim before she was allegedly killed in a hotel room in Rukpokwu, about 18 kilometers from Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital city.

In a video the Nigerian police posted to its official Twitter handle, the suspect said he had transactional sex with a nameless victim. Hours later, the victim was killed.

The video did not contain West’s explicit admission of the crime, however, the Nigerian police tagged the video “confession of a serial killer.”

“We went to the hotel,” West said in the confessional video. “I paid for the place. So they took her up [to the room].”

He said he ordered for food to be prepared for him and the victim after which they “slept,”, which seemed to be a euphemism for having sex.

The crime, he told the police, was committed in the early hours of the following morning.

“Around that 5:30 am – let’s say 4 or 5:30 – I brought out a knife and now threatened her.

“With that fear, she couldn’t shout. By then, the television…the volume was loud. So she kept quiet. After that, I used the wrapper to tie her hands at the back and then tie her legs.”

When asked by his interrogator, who was off the camera what sort wrapper he used, West said he did not use a wrapper but pillowcases.

“Investigation is on with a view to ascertaining his motives and possible accomplices,” police said on Thursday evening.
