There have been reports of killings of women in Port Harcourt in what has been suspected to be the work of a serial killer.
Earlier this week in one of his many escapades, the alleged killer was captured by a hotel’s CCTV and during police investigation was identified and considered wanted by the Nigerian Police.
Yesterday, news reached us that he was arrested and Lailas news reported. The suspected serial killer, identified as Gracious David West, arrested by the police has confessed to killing a woman in a hotel.
The suspect was arrested by police on Thursday, September 19 while he was on his way to Uyo from Port Harcourt.
In the video shared by the police, the suspect confessed to the killings.
He said he met his last victim at a club and after they agreed on a payment, they left the place together to a hotel.
The suspect said he and the victim ate and slept but that in the early hours of the morning, he brought out a knife and threatened to kill her with it if she shouted.
David West said when she saw the knife, she calmed down out of fear and allowed him to tie her two hands behind her back before strangulating her.
