Nigerian man arrested in Swiss over murder of Sri Lankan Tamil asylum worker

A Nigerian migrant was arrested in Switzerland after he murdered a 22-year-old asylum home worker in Germany. On Tuesday, a 27-year-old Nigerian migrant was arrested at a train station in the city of Bern, Switzerland, after he murdered a 22-year-old asylum home worker in Ahaus, Germany, and fled to another country. The arrest was committed after a Europe-wide arrest warrant was issued for the murderer.

“Only yesterday, the prosecutor’s office ordered the European-wide call for arrest on the basis of the existing national arrest warrant. Today’s arrest of the suspect in Switzerland is a quick success,” the Swiss Blick newspaper quoted words of chief prosecutor Martin Botzenhardt.

“The prosecutor’s office in Münster has initiated the formal extradition request,” Botzenhardt noted. “The murder commission will not question the suspect until after his arrival in Germany.”
As police reported, the migrant’s victim was 22-year-old Soopika P., who was stabbed in the head, neck and upper body. The young woman had no chance to survive. Reportedly, most likely, the motive for the crime was sexual desire, as, according to the authorities, the murderer had repeatedly tried to get in contact with Soopika.

According to one of the victim’s friends, the attraction was not mutual, as the girl had just broken up with her boyfriend and had no interest in a relationship. As the German Bild newspaper reported, Soopika was well known and popular in Ahaus. “Many knew her, she was a really nice girl. Because her own family comes from India and she has very good English, she has been involved in refugee aid,” the newspaper quoted words of one of her friends.

The Soopika’s murder became the latest of a number of murders of women, who have worked with migrants. The most famous case occurred in Germany, where Maria Ledenburger, a volunteer, helping asylum seekers, was raped and killed by a 17-year-old Afghan migrant.
