In a statement released by spokesperson of the state police command, Bala Elkana, says men of the Bariga Police station received a tip off on May 9 that one Shade Moke, 41, conspired with three others on February 29  and allegedly killed her 16-year-old house help, Halimat Sodiq, on allegation of stealing.

The victim is said to be a house help to Shade Moke. She was accused of stealing N2000 from her madam which she denied. The madam invited the remaining three suspects who tortured the girl to death. They buried her secretly at Atan cemetery Lagos, so as to conceal the murder. The four suspects were arrested but they denied the allegations.

They however, admitted slapping the girl for denying that she stole the money. They claimed that the girl went into convulsion after drinking water and that they took her to three different hospitals before she eventually died. That the girl was buried by her parents not the suspects. The parents were also contacted for their statement” Bala’s statement read.

The police spokesperson said the Commissioner of Police in the state, CP Hakeem Odumosu psc, has ordered the immediate transfer of the case to the State Criminal Investigation Department Yaba for discreet investigation and diligent prosecution.

The suspects will soon be charged to Court.
