Port Harcourt Serial/Ritual Killings: Why I killed seven women(Suspect Speaks)

It was a sober atmosphere at the Rivers State Police Command Force Headquarters, Moscow Road, as the police paraded a prime suspect in an orgy of serial killing of women in hotel in Rivers State.

The suspect, Gracious David West, who police say was arrested on Thursday on his way to Uyo was paraded before journalists on Friday.

The Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mr Mustapha Dandaura, who addressed journalists while parading the suspect said the suspect was not tortured but was allowed to tell the story of his killing expedition.

He said three other suspects have also been arrested in connection with the same crime would be paraded next week.

The CP also blamed insecurity in the state on the high political division.

The suspect, David West said he was involved in serial killing of women in Lagos, Owerri and Port Harcourt.

He said he had killed seven women with five of the killings in Port Harcourt and one each in Owerri and Lagos. “I will get these women from clubs, take them in, make love to them, collect their ATM cards, transfer their money into my account, seize their phones and other valuables then I will loud the TV set and strangulate the girls while they are asleep.” The 39-year-old said he doesn’t have any motive for committing the crime, adding that he kills forthe joy of it.

West said he had gone for deliverance in church but the problem still pessisted, also promising to take newsmen and the Police to the different hotels where he murdered his victims.

He also said he is an orphan and the only child of his deceased parents.
