Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command has arrested one Edirin Ohonre, suspected to be the alleged killer of Laetitia Naankang Dagan, an Assistant Director attached to the State Housen in Abuja.

KanyiDaily had reported that Dagan was assassinated in her apartment in Galadimawa, Abuja, on Monday evening, shortly after she returned from work.

The FCT Police spokesperson, DSP Anjuguri Manzah, in a release on Wednesday, confirmed the arrest of Edirin Ohonre, who is said to have conspired with others now at large to perpetrate the crime.

Manzah said the suspect, who is currently under interrogation, is assisting the team of detectives with information that will lead to the arrest of the other suspects connected to the murder of Mrs Dagan. He said:

“Preliminary investigation into the suspected murder by the Criminal Investigation Department of the FCT Police Command led to the arrest of one Edirin Ohonre who is suspected to have conspired with others now at large to perpetrate the crime.

“The suspect, who is currently under interrogation, is assisting the team of police detectives with information that will lead to the arrest of the other suspects connected to the crime, that are now at large.

“While commiserating with the family, friends, and colleagues of the deceased on the unfortunate incident, the FCT Police Command is assuring members of the public that it has deployed relevant investigative tools to unravel the circumstances surrounding the victim’s unfortunate death and ensure the arrest and prosecution of suspects behind the heinous act.

“The command is urging members of the public to disregard insinuations making the rounds in some social media platforms, and also wish to appeal to the members of the public to desist from pre-empting the ongoing police investigation.”

The killing of Mrs Laetitia Dagan is coming barely 24 hours after Tony Iwelu was electrocuted to death by a shower rose in his hotel room in Kaduna State.

Tony Iwelu was the Chief Security Officer (CSO) to the Minister for Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.
