The Nigera Police, Enugu State command have arrested a man who allegedly stabbed a commercial sex worker to death.
The police public relations officer of the command, SP Ebere Amaraizu stated this while answering questions from the press men in Enugu. He disclosed that the incident happened on Monday at about 3.am at Onuato Street, Enugu.
The accused picked the victim on Sunday at Rangers avenue, and they both agreed on N4,000 as the price for the deceased to pass night with him. But the crisis that engulfed the woman’s life arose at around 2am. He said;
“His request did not influence anything as the deceased allegedly requested to finish what she was inhaling in order to be in the mood for the business of the day.
“The accused maintained that after several hours of pressuring her and without any answer, he slept off and woke up before 3 a.m.,” Amarizu stated.
The police spokesman said that the accused immediately ordered the sex worker to leave the apartment since the aim of bringing her appeared to have been defeated.
He said, “The accused said that the deceased resisted the order and allegedly warned him to beware as she would not succumb to any person’s threat whatsoever.
“She later headed for a kitchen knife that was seen in the kitchen spot of the suspect’s room after allegedly biting him.
“The accused further revealed that a fight suddenly broke out between them and as the deceased tried to stab him to death with the kitchen knife, he overpowered her.”
Amarizu quoted the suspect as saying that the kitchen knife went straight to the stomach of the deceased and he finally stabbed her on the neck region and she died.
The police spokesman said that the accused later wrapped her body and hurriedly arranged to travel to Lagos.
According to him, the suspect was nabbed, following a tip-off from members of a local vigilante.
He said that the body was recovered from the apartment and deposited at the mortuary of the Eastern Nigeria Medical Centre, Enugu, as investigations into the incident had commenced.
