But, suddenly, he made a U-turn when the matter came up in court.

He, however, pleaded with the court to direct the police to release his wristwatch, money and neck chains.

However, ThankGod was later granted bail in the sum of N500, 000, one surety in like sum.

ThankGod’s counsel, Edward Obiokor, while applying for the bail of his client, reminded the court that the hotel manager was charged for misconduct with the corpse and not murder.

He added that she even helped to rescue one of the victims who the prime suspected also attempted to murder in the same hotel, adding that the lucky victim survived the attack and is alive.

In an interview with newsmen shortly after the sitting, the Lead Prosecution Officer from the state Ministry of Justice, Eke, who represented the Attorney-General, said, “David-West he was arranged before this same court for the killing of nine young women in the state, he pleaded guilty to nine of the 10 charges given to him.

“Today, he has changed his guilty plea to not guilty. However, his guilty plea did not make any difference because the court will still write not guilty for him because he is charged with a capital offence.


Meanwhile, the court has adjourned the case till December 9, 11, 13, 16, 18, 19 and 20, for hearing in the matter.
