Miss Dominion Okoro, prime suspect in the cold blooded murder of Mrs Marian Oredola Igbinedion, mother of former two-term Edo State Governor, Lucky Igbinedion and wife of billionaire businessman and socialite, Sir Gabriel Osawaru Igninedion, has been arrested. 

Miss Okoro was alleged to have strangled Mrs Maria Oredelo Igbinedion to death on the 2nd of December at her Ugbor GRA, Benin-City residence. The suspect was a maid in the house of the Igbinedions at the time the crime was committed. 

After the gruesome murder of the 85-year old woman who had been confined to a wheelchair before then, the suspect allegedly ransacked the house, and eloped with her money, jewelries and other valuables, to an unknown location. 

The long arm of the law however caught up with the suspect when she was arrested by a combined team of Undercover Security Operatives in Calabar on Tuesday.

The suspect who hails from Cross River State, was returned to Beinin on Wednesday and is now cooling her heels at the Police Headquarters in Benin City.

The body of the deceased has since been buried on the 10th of December. 

When contacted on mobile phones earlier today, the Edo State Police Command Spokesperson, SP Kotongs Bello said he had "Not been briefed by the Officer in Charge."
