A 38-year-old man has been arrested by the Ketu Divisional Police Command for allegedly beating his wife, Beatrice Logosu, 34, to death.
The suspect, Gali Galo, was apprehended after he secretly sent the victim’s body for preservation at the mortuary of the Hosanna Clinic at Agbozume.
The police has also arrested the mortuary attendant, William Gbeke, 36, for complicity in the crime.
The police said their attention was drawn to the crime following a report by neighbours.
The police disclosed that when they got to the morgue and inspected the body, they saw bruises and contusions on it with blood oozing from a broken jaw.
“The victim’s neck appeared broken, suggesting a possible case of strangulation,” a police report said.
