Based on Punch newspaper reports, the Lagos State Police Command has arrested a manager and a housemaid for killing their boss, Alhaja Sikirat Eko, in Omole Phase 1, Lagos State. Alhaja Eko was said to be running a restaurant and bar in her compound, where she lived alone with the maid. The newspaper report also states that the suspects allegedly killed Eko at her home located on 5, Babatunde Ladega Street and kept her corpse within the premises.
The suspects were said to have continued to run the restaurant, giving neighbours and customers the impression that the deceased had travelled. The two were said to have run out of luck when relatives of the deceased came on a visit. When the suspects could not provide a satisfactory answer, the matter was said to have been reported at Area G Command, in Ogba. A police source who preferred to remain anonymous, reportedly told the newspaper that the manager threw Eko into a well inside the compound along with a generator. The manager was said to have taken her phone which he used in impersonating her.
