Two prostitutes have been arrested by the men of Ogun State Police Command, for allegedly killing one of their customers, Adeyinka Olayinka.
The suspects are Kudirat Raji, also known Angela, and Esther Basiru.
The incident was said to have occurred on May 30, 2017, at the KS Hotel, in the Ifo Local Government Area of the state.
According to the state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the victim, who was supervising a construction work going on in his site at Ifo decided to pass the night in the hotel on the day.
He said preliminary investigation revealed that the victim contracted one of the prostitutes, Kudirat Raji, to pass the night with him on an agreed amount, but the deceased reneged on their agreement, which led to an argument between them.
The PPRO stated that while the argument was going on, Basiru, who was a friend to Kudirat, broke a bottle and stabbed the deceased in the armpit and injured his friend, who was present.
Oyeyemi said Olayinka bled to death.
The PPRO said the Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, had ordered the transfer of the case to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department.
