The man who has allegedly caused serious apprehension in Port Harcourt, Rivers State in the last two months has been arrested.
Gracious David West now known as “notorious serial killer” was Thursday arrested by the Rivers State Command of the Nigerian Police.
The 26-year old killer from Buguma Local Government Area of Rivers State, who is also a member of the Degbam cult group was arrested along East-West Road enroute Uyo from Port Harcourt.
Police says he has since made useful statements.
Investigation is on with a view to ascertaining his motives and possible accomplices. The Commissioner of Police Rivers State, CP Mustapha Dandaura will be briefing the media on this Police breakthrough on Friday.
Not less than eight ladies have been strangled in hotel rooms in the last month. Each of the deaths followed the same pattern of strangulation. The victims were all young ladies. There were no blood stains.
David West is said to be a former Niger Delta militant who was rehabilitated by a church in Port Harcourt.
During the week women groups protested to the government house and the police calling attention to the strange killings.
Also, the man was captured on a close circuit television in a hotel after what looked like a “successful” killing of a young woman on Tuesday.
