Ogun state police command has arrested an 18-year-old girl, Idowu Abosede, for allegedly stabbing her boyfriend, Aliyu Ibrahim to death.
A statement by the command’s spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi in Abeokuta on Wednesday disclosed that, the suspect was arrested on Friday, February 21.
According to Oyeyemi, the suspect’s arrest followed a distress call received from Seriki Hausa in Shagamu that the suspect and her deceased boyfriend were arguing over the sum of N3,000 as a result of which they were dragging a knife with each other and eventually the girl used the knife to stab the boyfriend on his chest which resulted to his death.
On receiving the distress call, the DPO Shagamu, Okiki Agunbiade, detailed his detectives to the scene where the teenager was apprehended. The blood stained knife which she used to stab the deceased was also recovered.
When the suspect was interrogated, she disclosed that she came to pass the night with the deceased and when she was about going in the morning, she took the sum of N3,000 from him but he was not ready to give her the whole N3,000; which was what led to the argument between them.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to homicide section of the State criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and prosecution.
