A man, Sunday Ugba has been arrested by the Kogi State Police Command.

The man from Ogoh Okpo in Olamaboro Local Government Area of the state was arrested for allegedly beheading a woman.

The incident was said to have happened on Sunday.

It was gathered that the woman was beheaded on her farm in Ogene Iga village in Olamaboro Local Government Area of the state.

Residents said a search party was organised on Monday to locate her whereabouts as she did not come back from the farm that Sunday.
