Abimbola Oyeyemi, the State’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), who made the disclosure in a statement made available to newsmen in Abeokuta said the incident happened on Tuesday at KS Hotel in Ifo Local Government Area.
He said the victim, who was supervising construction work on his site, decided to pass the night in the hotel when the incident occurred.
The suspects, Kudirat Raji, also known as Angela and Esther Basiru were sex workers at the Hotel where the victim was stabbed to death with broken bottles.
He said that preliminary investigation revealed that the victim contracted Kudirat Raji to pass the night with him on an agreed amount.
According to the PPRO, the deceased reneged on the agreement which led to heated argument between them. “While the argument was going on, Basiru who is a friend to Angela broke a bottle and injured the deceased. “Angela used the broken part of the bottle to stab the deceased in the armpit thereby cutting one of his nerves, consequent upon which he bled to death,’’ he said.
Oyeyemi said the manager of the hotel alerted the Police and the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Ifo Division; CSP Anthony Haruna led his men to the scene and arrested the two suspects.
The Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, had ordered that the case be transferred to Homicide section, Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for investigation and prosecution of the suspects.
