The police command in Delta State have arrested a suspected ‘Yahoo boy’ for allegedly killing his twin brother at Oleh, headquarters of Isoko South Local Government Area of the state.

The cause of death couldn’t be ascertained at the time of filing this report, however, sources close to the incident said it might have been carried out for ritual purposes.

The suspect, it was gathered, was found with a dog and the decomposing body of the deceased in their apartment at Old Olomoro Road, Monday, after neighbors perceived an offensive smell emanating from the flat, Vanguard.ng reports.

“The house was locked for some days and after some time, the people living in the compound began to perceive foul smell that attracted flies around the apartment.

“The neighbours then alerted the police at the Oleh divisional headquarters. The door was forced open and they found him sitting close to the decomposing body of his twin brother. A dog was also found in the house,” a source, who craved anonymity, said.

The source said the corpse of the deceased had been deposited in a mortuary in the area while the suspect and his dog were arrested by the police.

Confirming the incident, Tuesday May 25, the Police Public Relations Officer of the state command, Mr Bright Edafe, said the police had commenced investigation into the matter.

He, however, added that “For now, there is no evidence that it was for ritual purpose. When they broke into the house, they saw the decomposing body and the twin brother.”
