A Naval rating has been arrested for his alleged complicity in the death of a 16-year-old girl, Miss Nengi Enenimiete, whose corpse was found in the wardrobe of a hotel in Twon Brass, Brass Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.

It was gathered that the Navy Police in conjunction with the operatives of the Police and the community youths’ leadership identified and arrested the unnamed Rating.

A source, who spoke in confidence, said the arrested Naval personnel was in the custody of the Nigerian Navy at Egweama in Brass and would likely be handed over to the Police for prosecution after the preliminary orderly room trial.

“Upon a search, he​ discovered a lifeless female corpse hidden inside a wardrobe.

“The​ deceased was later identified as Nengi Enenimiete, female, aged 16. Investigation is ongoing to identify the suspects who lodged in the hotel room on the night of the incident.

“The corpse has been evacuated and deposited at the mortuary for autopsy. Investigation is ongoing.”
