An estate agent has been arrested by police in Benue State after allegedly k#lling a lady who gave him money to find an apartment for her.
Shagbaor Ugosor Japhet was apprehended after reportedly receiving N150,000 from the woman to find her an apartment.
The lady, Erekaa Dooshimaa, a final year student of Benue State University Makurdi, went missing before her body was found with bl@@d stains at Brewery Quarters on February 22. Detectives traced her k#llers after going through her bank account from which she transferred N150,000 to the suspect.
The suspect said that he used the money to stake a bet. He added that he later called the 25-year-old lady and h@ck£d her to d£@th.
“When she arrived at the dark corner of the street where I called her to come, I cut her with a m@chete several times leading to her d£@th. After k#lling her, I took her body with her iPhone and d¥mped her body on the street to make it look like someone else k#lled her.” Unfortunately for Shagbaor, the POS machine Dooshima used to make the transfer to him was tracked and he was arrested.
