A 27-year-old man, Eniola Adenuga, has been arrested by the police in Ogun State for allegedly raping a co-worker, Faith Jude, to death.
Adenuga was paraded at the police command headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, on Wednesday.
According to the police, Adenuga, a mobile money agent, was arrested for murder after he made a report of the discovery of Jude’s corpse at Lafenwa Police Station.
The suspect reportedly killed his coworker on September 16 but made a report of discovering her corpse on September 19.
The police disclosed that Adenuga gagged Jude’s mouth with a piece of cloth while he raped her.
“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 a downpour and grabbed the deceased, 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,” the police told journalists during the parade.
Adenuga, who claimed to regret his action, said, “I regret my action because I did not know what came over me; I am not a womanizer; 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.”
