Man Rapes Co-Worker To Death, Keeps Corpse
The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a 27-year-old man, Eniola Adenuga, a mobile money agent, for allegedly raping a co -worker, Faith Jude to death. The incident occurred in Lafenwa, Abeokuta South Local Government Area of the state.
Bashir Makama, the Commissioner of Police (CP) in the state, paraded the suspect including 18 others, who were nabbed for various crimes like rape, armed robbery and cultism, at the Eleweran command headquarters yesterday.
Deputy Commissioner of Police, Operations, Edward Ajogun, who represented the CP, said Adenuga was arrested for murder at the Lafenwa Police Station when he went to report the discovery of Faith’s corpse.
The Police boss said the suspect committed the crime on September 16 but reported the discovery of his co-worker corpse on September 19.
According to Makama, the suspect gagged the mouth of the deceased with a piece of cloth to stop her from screaming, took advantage of a heavy downpour, and raped her endlessly until she gave up the ghost.
He said that Adenuga kept the body of the deceased for three days in his shop but the odour oozing out of the place where the body was kept became unbearable, and he was forced to report the incident.
Makama further said that the suspect has confessed to have committed the heinous crime after he was grilled by the police.
He said , “On close examination, it was discovered that there were marks of violence on the body of the deceased, which raised the suspicion that she was murdered .
“Based on the discovery, Eniola Adenuga was professionally interrogated and it was discovered that he was the person who actually killed the victim .
“He confessed to the crime and stated that the deceased, a co-mobile money agent, came to the shop to collect money for their boss.
“He took advantage of the downpour, grabbed the deceased and gagged her mouth with a piece of cloth, while he raped her.
“Having had his way with the young woman, he discovered that she had died of suffocation. He has been arrested, while the case is under investigation at the homicide section of the command’s Criminal Investigation Department.”
However, Adenuga said he regret his action. His appeal was that government should temper justice with mercy.
He said , “I regret my action, because I did not know what came over me. I am not a womaniser. I don’t know why I got myself involved in this.
“The government should temper justice with mercy. I promise never to do something like this again.”
