Chief Ope Bademosi, a socialite and Chairman of Credit Switch Technology has been murdered by a cook he hired on Sunday.
The suspect, a Togolese was said to have been brought by the deceased from Ondo state to his resident in Ikoyi, Lagos and the murder took place on Wednesday.
Mr Ope Bademosi was reportedly found in a pool of blood, with multiple stab wounds and investigations are still ongoing.
The Homicide division of the Nigeria Police Force, Lagos Command, has declared the young Togolese who allegedly committed the murder, wanted.
“When we got inside, we saw the man in a pool of blood with the volume of music increased to the highest level,” a neighbor said.
In an interview with a homicide investigation officer, he said: “This is very wicked. In fact, that guy must be a devil itself. He stabbed the man in multiple places. I was the first to enter the apartment.
In fact, the music was so loud that even if you were to be killing 20 people here, no one would hear them scream. After committing the act, the guy went to the toilet and pulled off the white uniform meant for cooks he was wearing because it was all stained with blood.
He also left the knife he used inside the toilet there. If you see the knife, it’s a very strong, long and sharp knife that could only be authorized for military personnel.
Afterward, he ransacked the whole apartment and carted away all valuables he could lay his hands on including an unaccountable sum of money, jewelries and the deceased phone.
What baffles us more is that, no one seems to know anything about him because he was only employed few days ago and brought from Ondo state to resume just this last Sunday. And they only know him by his first name, which is Sunday.”
