The Lagos state police have arrested a man, Akodogbo Doheto, in connection with the demise of a 57-year-old woman, who allegedly died in his house after the two had a s*xual affair. PUNCH Metro report:
PUNCH Metro learnt that the incident occurred on Salu Street in the Badagry area of Lagos.
Our correspondent gathered from police sources that the victim, Bonu Fiaret, who was said to be divorced, was working as a nurse in a government hospital in the area.
It was learnt that 60-year-old Doheto, who hails from Badagry, had been dating Fiaret for about two years before her sudden death.
The matter was reported at the Badagry Police Division.
Our correspondent learnt that after Fiaret was discovered dead in Doheto’s one-room apartment on the morning of January 3, the police arrested the suspect.
In his statement to the police, Doheto explained that the woman died in his apartment after they both had a s*x on the fateful Friday evening.
