Police operatives in Ogun State have arrested an 18-year-old boy, Jamiu Malomo, who killed a 28-year-old lady, Azeezat Akande, in cold blood.
The suspect was arrested following a report lodged at the Adatan Divisional Headquarters by the chairman, Ilupeju community, Oke Aregba, Abeokuta.
The community leader told police that they woke up in the morning of Sunday July 18, 2021 to discover a lifeless body of a young lady, who had been stabbed to death, on a rock in the area, with a knife soaked with blood beside her.
Upon the report, the Divisional Police Officer, Adatan division, SP Abiodun Salau, and his detectives moved to the scene from where the corpse was moved to the State Hospital, Ijaye mortuary.
The DPO then detailed his crack detectives on intelligence and forensic investigations to unravel the mystery behind the gruesome murder of the deceased.
They subsequently received information that the person who was seen last with the deceased had been sighted at about 11:45 pm of Thursday 22nd of July 2021, at 380 Bar, Panseke area of Abeokuta, where he was trying to pick another ‘runs girl’.
The detectives quickly moved in there and got him arrested.
On interrogation, the suspect, Malomo, who was just released from prison custody last month, confessed to killing the deceased.
According to him, he picked the deceased from Panseke and took her home for sexual pleasure.
After having carnal knowledge of the victim, the victim demanded for the N10,000 which was their agreement, but he refused to give her because he had only N8,000 with him.
A hot argument ensued between them. He then gave his phone to the deceased to hold and told her to wait for him on the road so he could go and bring the money for her.
While the deceased was waiting, the suspect came back with a knife, unknown to the victim, and stabbed her deeply in the neck, killing her instantly.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Edward Awolowo Ajogun, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to the homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation.
