Speaking about the killings, the state Commissioner of Police, Mustapha Dandaura, told newsmen in Port Harcourt that the command had reached an agreement with hotel owners and managers some weeks ago that they must install CCTV cameras on their premises.

Dandaura stated that eight young women had been murdered in the state by suspected ritual killers in the past two months.

According to reports and photos, the victims are usually found strangled, tied and gagged with white clothes around their necks and waists.

Also, on the apprehended suspects, the CP explained that while one was trailed to Kaduna State, the other was nabbed after a young woman reported to the police that a man was trying to lure her to a hotel with a promise to pay her N30,000.
