She was allegedly stabbed to death in her room by the assailant, who also took her iPhone away. Since then the police had been on the trail of the suspect.
Parading the suspect at the police headquarters in Akure, on Tuesday, the state capital, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Abayomi Oladipo said the suspect allegedly stole the deceased’s phone after killing her.
According to the police boss, the suspect was arrested by the use of modern technology which was used to track the stolen phone to the 21-year-old suspect.
