Nnanyerugo Best, better known as Killaboi, has been arrested in Sierra Leone for the murder of his girlfriend.
Recall that back in July 2023, Killaboi had gone on Instagram to confess that he killed Augusta Osedion (read here). He expressed willingness to turn himself in to the police, but never did, and he eventually fled Nigeria.
Then, earlier this month, the Nigerian police declared him wanted.
His mother told LIB at the time that she did not want to speak much on the case so as not to jeopardise the police investigation.
“I want to be low about the issue at hand because I am still working on how to get his location for arrest.”
Killaboi has now been arrested in Sierra Leone where he fled to.
News of his arrest caused him to trend on Twitter on Saturday morning, Oct. 21.

According to reports, he changed his identity, contact details, social media handles, and also got Sierra Leon passport.
The punter, who changed his name to Kanu Princeton Samuel to evade arrest, was reportedly caught after someone recognised him at a nightclub in Sierra Leone.
