The Ogun State Police Command arrested a teenager, Abosede Idowu, for allegedly stabbing her boyfriend, Aliyu Ibrahim, to death over N3,000.
Idowu had reported stabbed Ibrahim in the chest after spending the night with him and allegedly stealing N3,000 from his pocket the following morning.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said Abosede and Ibrahim were seen dragging a knife with each other in the public before she allegedly stabbed him in the chest, which led to his death.
Adeyemi stated that, “The suspect was arrested following a distress call from the Seriki Hausa in Sagamu that the suspect and her deceased boyfriend were arguing over the sum of N3,000 and were both struggling with a knife and eventually, the girl used the knife to stab her boyfriend in his chest, which resulted in his death.
“On receiving the distress call, the DPO Sagamu, SP Okiki Agunbiade, sent his detectives to the scene, where the suspect was arrested,“The bloodstained knife, which she used to stab the deceased, was also recovered.”
She added that, while Abosede was been interrogated, she stated that she passed the night in the deceased’s apartment and when she was about leaving in the morning, she took the sum of N3,000 from his pocket.
It was this action of the suspect that angered the deceased, who insisted on retrieving the money from his girlfriend,the deceased was not ready to give her the entire N3,000 and that was what led to the argument between them.
“Idowu further stated that it was the deceased, who brought out the knife and while struggling with him, the knife stabbed him in his chest,” Oyeyemi added.
He said the remains of the deceased had been released to his relations on their demand for burial in accordance with Islamic rites
Oyeyemi said the Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson, had ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to the homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and prosecution.
