Two suspects have been arrested in connection with the rape and murder of a 58-year-old businesswoman, Doris Andy Inyang, at the state Housing estate in Calabar, Cross River state on Wednesday, April 14.

It had been reported earlier that the victim's son, Uti, cried out for help on social media last week when he found out that his mum had been raped, beaten, strangled, and her wrist slit by those who carried out the attack. He also mentioned that the assailants carted away documents and his own car after the attack. 

There is a breakthrough in the case as two suspects have been arrested. Confirming this development, the spokesperson of the state police command, DSP Irene Ugbo, said two armed robbery suspects have been arrested and that they will be paraded by the state police command on Tuesday, April 20.
