Public Relations Officer for Edo Police Command, DSP Chidi Nwabuzor, confirmed the incident, adding that the police have made some arrests.

He said a case of rape and possible ritual were also being looked into by the homicide investigators.

Shop operators in the area are yet to believe that assailants could sneak into a shop in broad daylight, raped and murdered their neighbour unnoticed.
