A 40-year-old Nigerian national, Obinoze Alexander, has been arrested for allegedly killing a fellow citizen identified as Flora Gold in South Delhi, India.
The body of the woman was found wrapped in bedsheets and tucked away in a box bed on Friday, April 28, 2023.
DCP (South) Chandan Chowdhary said that they received a PCR call from a person who claimed that a foul smell was coming from inside a flat in Maidangarhi.
“The caller said that a foul smell was coming from a flat on the third floor of the Sriman apartment. The flat has been closed for the last three days,” DCP Chowdhary said.
After a police team rushed to the spot, they found that the flat was locked.
The owner of the flat was called and the door was opened with the help of a key maker.
“The body of a woman was found wrapped in bedsheets in the box of double bed in the right side room of the flat, a 2 BHK,” he said.
The owner said that he rented out the flat in December 2021 to one Obinoze Alexander for Rs 12,000.
After technical surveillance, the deceased was identified as a Nigerian national and Obinoze was arrested.
“Investigation is ongoing to ascertain the motive and relationship of the accused with the woman,” Chowdhary said.
