arrested for his involvement in the murder after he went to report the incident

on September 16 and reported last Thursday at the station.

The police commissioner said the suspect told his
men at the station that he discovered the lifeless body of his co-worker,
covered with canopy at the front of their shop.

According to Makama, the suspect took advantage of
the downpour on a fateful day to perpetuate his heinous act by allegedly
gagging the mouth of the deceased with a piece of cloth to stop her from
screaming while he was raping her.

The Police boss further explained that Eniola kept
the body of the deceased in his shop for three days after the incident but was
forced to report following the odour oozing from the place he kept the body.

He added that the suspect however reportedly
confessed to the crime after he was grilled over the death of his colleague.

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, the complainant, Adenuga
Eniola was professionally interrogated and it was discovered that he was the
person that actually killed the victim.

“He confessed to the crime and stated that the
deceased, a co-worker came to the shop to collect money for their boss.

“He took advantage of the downpour then and grabbed
the deceased, gagged her mouth with a piece of cloth while he raped her.

“Having had his way with the girl, he discovered
that she had given up the ghost due to suffocation. 

He is under arrest with the
incident, while the case is undergoing investigation at the Homicide Section of
the command’s Criminal Investigation Department.”

However, the suspect who claimed to have regretted
his action begged the government to tamper 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 involved myself in
