Sheriff Balogun in Abeokuta
The Ogun State Police Command has arrested two suspected prostitutes for killing a middle-aged man, Mr. Adeyinka Olayinka, in a hotel in Ifo area of the state.
In a statement by the commandâ€™s Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the two suspects, Kudirat Raji also known as Angela and Esther Basiru were at KS Hotel, Ifo where the victim was supervising a construction work going on in his building site and decided to pass the night.
Oyeyemi said: â€œPreliminary investigation revealed that the victim contracted Kudirat Raji to pass the night with him on an agreed amount, but the deceased reneged on their agreement which led to hot argument between them.â€
He said while the argument was going on, Esther Basiru who is a friend to Angela, broke a bottle and injured the deceasedâ€™s friend who was at the scene while Angela used the broken part of the bottle to stab the deceased on his armpit thereby cutting one of his nerves, which led to his death.
He said the manager of the hotel quickly alerted the police and the DPO Ifo Division, Anthony Haruna, who led his men to the scene and promptly arrested the two suspects.
He, however, said the state Commissioner for Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered the transfer of the case to Homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discrete investigation and possible prosecution of the suspects.
