Dagan, 47, who hailed from Plateau State in North Central Nigeria, worked in her office on Monday till 8 pm, but by 11 pm she was ‘’gruesomely murdered’’ in her apartment by unknown persons.
The police have announced the arrest of a suspect in the murder of a State House official who was murdered on Monday.
