One arrested over links to Blessing Karami murder

In a significant development in the tragic case of the murder of Blessing Karami, a National Open University of Nigeria undergraduate student, the police have apprehended a suspect linked to the heinous crime.

The arrested individual, known only as Aminu, has been identified as the boyfriend of the late Blessing Karami.

The suspect was taken into custody following an extensive interrogation conducted by the Divisional Police Headquarters in Durumi.

This arrest comes in the wake of Blessing Karami’s mysterious disappearance, which led to a widespread search for her.

Blessing Karami, who went missing on September 11, 2023, after boarding a taxi following work, was tragically discovered deceased several days later in the wooded area of Karimo within the Federal Capital Territory.

Genesis Moses Karami, the elder brother of the victim, played a crucial role in assisting the authorities.

He reported receiving a suspicious call on September 19, providing information about his sister’s corpse.

However, this lead turned out to be false, as the caller continuously changed locations when questioned by the police, causing delays in locating the victim’s remains.
