Starrys Obazei/November 30, 2022.
A Nigerian man, yet to be identified, has been reportedly arrested by the police in Ghana for beheading his girlfriend.
An awful video of his arrest, which also showed the corpse of the deceased lady, a Nigerian as well, was shared on Facebook by a user of the social media platform, identified as Smile Baba, a Ghana-based Nigerian journalist/ broadcaster.
According to Baba, the incident happened in Spintex, Accra, the capital of Ghana.
He shared: “Unfortunate development this afternoon. I have just arrived from a crime scene here in Accra, Ghana, where a Nigerian young man beheaded his Nigerian girlfriend in Spintex, Accra, Ghana.
“My question is, who lies to these young boys and girls that money rituals truly exist? Ladies, you have to be careful who you trust; it doesn’t matter how calm the man looks. Just be careful.”
When our correspondent contacted the Public Relations Officer, of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, he said the agency was unaware of the incident.
He, however, stated that the suspect would have to face the laws in Ghana.
He said: “Our stand is that any Nigerian that commits a crime, let the law of the land take its course. The Nigerian government has no role to play in such an instance.
“If you go to another man’s land and commit a crime, the law of the land will always take its course. So, we always advise Nigerians to be good ambassadors wherever they find themselves. I’ve not watched the video and we have not been petitioned.”
