The police in Abuja say it has arrested a suspect in connection with the murder of a State House official that was killed on Monday.
Laetitia Dagan who stays in the Galadimawa area of the Federal Capital Territory was at home at about 11:00pm when assailants breached her residence and took her life.
She was an assistant director handling administrative matters at the Presidential Villa before her death.
The police on Wednesday said they have taken a suspect identified as Edirin Ohonre, a man whose age was not immediately disclosed, into custody in Abuja. He has been accused of playing a role in Ms Dagan’s death with other suspects still at large.
The police said Mr Ohonre has been cooperating with homicide detectives to unravel the motive for the attack and track down fleeing alleged conspirators.
