A man has landed in police net after he allegedly murdered a s*x worker.
It was gathered that the customer allegedly stabbed the victim to death with a knife during a fight that ensued between them after she rejected the N1000 he gave her.
Sources in the area told Punch that the victim resided in one of the brothels within the area known for all sorts of illicit activities.
A source said it was the alarm raised by the neighbours around the hotel and passers-by that drew the attention of the people that apprehended the suspect when he attempted to run away after discovering that the victim was dead.
Spokesperson of the State Police Command, DSP Sanusi Abubakar, who confirmed the incident to Punch, said the suspect claimed to be a researcher who visited Sokoto State to carry out research.
Abubakar said the suspect decided to spend the night with the victim’s brother but said that trouble started when the suspect paid the victim N1,000.
The PPRO said the victim rejected the money, which resulted in a fight between them.
According to the spokesperson, the suspect claimed that the victim allegedly brought out a knife which he (the suspect) used to stab her after he overpowered her.
Abubakar added that the case had been transferred to the homicide section of the Command for proper investigation.
