The South African police have confirmed the arrest of a man who allegedly stabbed to death the daughter of his ex-girlfriend.
Though it was unclear what had transpired between the man and his former lover, reports, however, had it that the lifeless body of the young child who was earlier reported missing was found in the suspect’s wardrobe after a search by the police.
Naija News learnt that Samogelo Mokhele‘s mother had left her daughter sleeping around 11.30 am on March 11, 2021, when she went to the shop. Unfortunately on her return, her daughter was nowhere to be found.
