A Naval Rating has been arrested for his alleged complicity in the death of a 16-year-old girl, Miss Nengi Enenimiete, whose corpse was found in the wardrobe of a hotel in Twon Brass, Brass Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
It was gathered that the Navy in conjunction with the operatives of the police and the community youths identified and arrested the unnamed Rating said to be involved in the dastardly act.
A source, who spoke in confidence, said the arrested Naval personnel was in the custody of the Nigerian Navy at Egweama in Brass and would likely be handed over to the police for prosecution after the preliminary orderly room trials.

It was gathered that Janet was abducted close to her residence and driven away in her Sienna car with an Abuja number plate.
Her husband was said to be on his way to Port Harcourt, Rivers State, when the incident occurred.
