The last may not have been heard about the murder of
Victoria Omoregbe of Hospital Road, Ake-Igbanke, as 4 persons suspected to be
connected to the incident are currently being questioned and helping the State
Criminal Investigation Division in Benin-City, to unravel the mysteries
surrounding the death of the elderly woman who lost her husband barely 2 years
ago.

                            

From a reliable source, it was gathered that after
the incident which happened Monday, June 28, 2010, the police consequently
swung into action and effected some arrests. It was alleged that 3 persons who
went to the farm with the woman as laborers on that fateful daye were summoned
by the village heads, to give accounts of their trip to the farm with the
woman, upon which a popular ex-hotelier popularly known as Frank Motel was also
named by the suspects. It was further leant that the elders of the village also
invited the former hotelier for discussion on the matter. But the invitation
was not immediately honoured, as Mr. Omorage was said to have traveled out of
town at that time. Nevertheless, it was gathered that the suspect went to the
community police station in the evening of that day, taking a solicitor with
him. The 4 of the suspects were detained at the station  from where they were later taken to
Benin-City for further investigations.

                            

In a telephone interview with a member of the
family, he told Ika Weekly that the matter is still being investigated, and
that the 4 suspects were granted bail while a fifth person who was also named
in connection to the murder case is said to be at large. The source said that
the police is waiting for the autopsy report of the late woman, in order to ascertain
the cause of her death.

                            

It could be recalled that Ika Weekly reported the
incident on a previous publication where it was stated that Mrs. Victoria
Omorage went to farm on June 28, 2010, and did not return home. It was in the
morning of the next day that family members of the deceased went on a search
party, and they discovered the body of the sixty-seven-year old woman in her
farm. Her farming tools, including a hoe and machette were also seen at the
scene of the incident.

                            

Mrs. Victoria Eluromma Omoregbe who was described by
neighbours and residents of the community as peace-loving, gentle and friendly
was said to have impacted positively on those that came her way during her life
time. Her body has since been deposited in a mortuary, as investigations still
continue in the matter.
