A man, Arepamowei Koru, who hails from Ogobiri community in the Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa, has allegedly beaten his 22-year-old girlfriend, Toma Angolo, to death.

The two lovers were said to be cohabiting in the man’s community before the tragic incident on Tuesday.

Residents of the community said they had stayed together without noticeable quarrel before their minor disagreement on Tuesday led to a fight.

Neighbours say the man might have hit his girlfriend hard, resulting in her bleeding to death.

The elder sister of the deceased held the culprit before alerting the police at Amassoma Division, who apprehended him.

The deceased father, ServeGod Angolo, had rushed her to the Federal Medical Centre in Yenagoa, but she gave up the ghost before they could reach the hospital.

Police spokesman in Bayelsa, SP Asinim Butswat, confirmed the incident, saying the suspect has been arrested and detained at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID).
