Two commercial sex workers have been arrested by the police in Ogun State for allegedly killing a customer for not paying agreed amount.
The incident which took place on Tuesday May 30, at KS Hotel, Ifo, was reportedly sparked off by a quarrel which ensued between the victim, Adeyinka Olayinka and the prostitutes, Kudirat Raji alias Angela and Esther Basiru when the victim refused to pay an agreed amount for an overnight job by the prostitutes. As the argument went on, the prostitutes were said to have stabbed Olayinka with a broken bottle during an argument.
Thenationonlineng reported that police has since arrested the two prostitutes.
Spokesman for the Ogun State Police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, an Assistant Superintendent (ASP) said the victim contracted Raji for the night but the duo had an argument over the price.
According to Thenationonlinng, Oyeyemi said: “The victim was supervising an ongoing construction work on his property and so he spent the night at the hotel. He contracted Kudirat Raji to pass the night with him on an agreed amount but reneged on their agreement. His refusal to pay the agreed amount led to a hot argument between them. While the argument was going on, Esther Basiru, a friend to Angela broke a bottle and injured the deceased’s friend who was at the scene. Angela used the broken part of the bottle to stab the deceased on the armpit thereby cutting one of his nerves, consequent upon which he bled to death. The manager of the hotel alerted the police at Ifo and the DPO, CSP Anthony Haruna led his men to the scene and arrested the two suspects. The Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu has ordered the transfer of the case to Homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) for discrete investigation and possible prosecution of the suspects.”
