Nigerian man who killed compatriot caught in Bihar

New Delhi: A 35-year-old Nigerian national who stabbed his fellow countryman was arrested from Bihar's Kishanganj district, Delhi Police said on Saturday, adding that the accused was attempting to flee back to Nigeria after the incident.
Police said the accused, identified as Osaretin, a permanent resident of Nigeria, had came to India in 2010 and runs a garment business.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) Romil Baaniya said that on March 9, one Hillary, another Nigerian national, was stabbed to death at 60 Feet Road in Chattarpur Pahari, during a drunken scuffle between two groups of African nationals.
After interrogation of many suspects, Osaretin was identified as the prime accused. A police team raided at his house at Faridabad, Haryana but he was found missing. After mounting a technical surveillance, Osaretin was found to be in Jalandhar, Punjab.
"A team rushed to Punjab and searched him at all possible hideouts. It was learnt that he hired a cab and left for Assam. The team started verifying all cabs which left Jalandhar towards Assam/Bihar side," said the DCP.
The location of Oseratin's cab was traced to Bihar and information was immediately shared with Bihar Police, who soon arrested Osaretin from Kishanganj.
During interrogation, Osaretin disclosed that he and his friends had beaten up a man from a rival group and had gone to Chattarpur to search for that man.
There, they found Hillary, whom they beat up severely and stabbed with a knife, before fleeing.
