CITIZENS COMPASS– AN estate agent, Shagbaor Ugosor Japhet, is currently cooling his heels with Benue State police command for allegedly killing a female home seeker, Erekaa Dooshimaa, who gave him N150,000 to find her an apartment in the State.
Problem started when Erekaa Dooshimaa, a final-year student of Benue State University, Makurdi reportedly went missing before her body was recovered with bloodstains at Brewery Quarters.
Men of the command were said to have traced her killers after going through her bank account, from which she transferred N150,000 to the suspect.
Armed with the information, the operatives were said to have tracked the POS machine Dooshima used to make the transfer to the bank account of the estate agent.
Shagbaor was arrested and during interrogation, he confessed to using the money to stake a bet and that he later called the lady who had paid him for a house and hacked her to death.
In her confessional statement, he said,
When she arrived at the dark corner of the street where I called her to come I cut her with a machete several times leading to her death.
“After killing her, I took her body with her iPhone and dumped her on the street to make it look like someone else killed her”,
