19-year-old man arrested for stabbing commercial sex worker to death in Bauchi

The Bauchi State Police Command has apprehended a 19-year-old man, Muhammad Ibrahim, for the alleged murder of a commercial sex worker in the Bauchi Local Government Area.

The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, SP Ahmad Wakil, confirmed the arrest in a statement issued on Wednesday in Bauchi.

The suspect, arrested on Monday, was accused of fatally stabbing Emmanuella Ande during an altercation.

The unfortunate incident took place in a hotel room at Happiness Garden situated in Bayan Gari.

According to SP Wakil, the argument escalated when the deceased demanded a payment of N5,000 for her services during a previous encounter, leading to a physical confrontation that resulted in her sustaining a serious injury leading to her death.

He said the suspect also stabbed one other person, among those who came to rescue the deceased.

“It led to a physical confrontation where the victim sustained a serious injury which resulted in her death.

“The arrest was made following a distress call received from a good samaritan that on the same date, at about 6:45 p.m., the suspect entered a hotel room of Happiness Garden situated at Bayan Gari.

“He subsequently stabbed his girlfriend, Emmanuella Ande, around her upper chest region and at that point, the victim screamed and the people around attempted to rescue her.

“They forcefully opened the door, where the suspect additionally stabbed one, Zaharaddeen Adamu, on his left hand,” he said.

Police officers managed to rescue the suspect from potential mob violence and promptly referred the victims to the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital, Bauchi.

Ande was pronounced dead by a medical doctor and her body was deposited at the morgue.

Preliminary investigations revealed that the suspect and the deceased had met on Facebook earlier in the year.

It was also discovered that the suspect had debited N400,000 from his father’s bank account to spend time with his girlfriend.

The police recovered a knife at the crime scene, and the suspect is expected to face charges in court upon the completion of the investigation.
