A 500-level expelled student of the Federal University of Technology (FUT), Minna, David Ndako, has been arrested by the police for raping and chopping off the head of a lady while celebrating the New Year on Tuesday in Rafin Yashi area of Bosso town in Niger state.
Blueprint learnt that the girl, simply identified as Rahamat, was lured into the apartment by the man before he sexually abused her.
Ndako was said to have dragged the headless body of the girl to the toilet in the apartment before wrapping the bleeding head in a Bagco super bag which he carried on his way out of the compound.
However, it was learnt that the neighbours became suspicious of the killer boy, particularly when they noticed blood dripping from the bag.
They were said to have questioned him on the content of the bag and forced him to open it before discovering that he was carrying the severed head of his female visitor.
Our correspondent gathered that the neighbours raised alarm which attracted an angry mob that almost lynched the school drop-out before the community leader in the area rescued him and handed him over to the police.
The girl was said to be on a visit to his relative in Minna from Katsina state, but it could not be ascertained if they were in a relationship before the incident.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Niger state Police Command and Deputy Superintended of Police, Pius Edobor, confirmed the incident to Blueprint, saying that investigation was on to establish the identity of the murdered girl and the relationship between the boy and the deceased.
Blueprint learnt that the Ndako was expelled from FUT over six years ago in connection with cult-related activities.
