He was alleged to have run away after the dastardly act and police thereafter declared him wanted.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, Femi Joseph, confirmed the arrest to reporters while parading the suspect at the headquarters of the command on Friday.

His wife, who found him with multiple stab wounds, said she left her husband at home to carry out some transactions in the bank.

Upon her return, she found him lying in a pool of his blood and the cook, who was employed four days before the tragic incident, was nowhere to be found.

A homicide investigation officer was quoted as saying: “After committing the act, the guy went to the toilet and pulled off the white uniform meant for cooks he was wearing because it was all stained with blood. He also left the knife he used inside the toilet there. If you see the knife, it’s a very strong, long and sharp knife that could only be authorised for military personnel.”

The cook reportedly ransacked the apartment and stole valuables such as money, jewelry and a mobile phone.

The police, in a notice issued to declare the cook wanted,had  said actions have been taken to apprehend him.
