Sex worker stabbed father of four to death in Asaba

The Police in Delta have arrested a commercial sex worker who allegedly stabbed her client to death during an argument at Destar Hotel , Asaba , Delta , on July 18 .

The Spokesman of the Police Command in the state, DSP Andrew Aniamaka , said on Friday in Asaba that the police responded to a distress call from the hotel after the incident.

“The suspect is currently in police custody.

“A day after the incident , the “C Division ’’ in Asaba carried out preliminary investigation on the case and transferred it to Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation Department .

“As I speak to you, homicide detectives have commenced full investigation into the case with a view to unravelling what actually transpired between the suspect and the victim to establish culpability. ”

The hotel has now been deserted , and attempt to speak with its manager was unsuccessful as he was said to have travelled out of Asaba .

However, a bar attendant , who preferred anonymity , said the incident had thrown “the stakeholders ” into a mourning mood .

“The sad incident started like a normal argument inside the hotel room , and before we realised it, a man was down with a fatal stab.

“The incident happened at about 10 . 45 p . m . , so nobody could actually say what led to the fracas .
One of the few sex workers in the hotel who also spoke anonymously, described the incident as horrible and unfortunate , saying it had brought “ our business to a standstill’’ .

“However, I will like to use this opportunity to advise our clients to always respect themselves when they come here .

“Many of the clients do invite trouble to themselves. I rest my case ,” she said.
The victim was a married man with four children.
