The Ondo State Police Command has arrested one Emmanuel Akpan for allegedly killing his boss, Mrs Febisola Adedayo, a restaurant operator in Ondo Town and stealing her personal items.
Some of the items allegedly stolen from the deceased are N3,500, two phones, jewellery and a generator.
The state commissioner of Police, Bolaji Salami, while parading the suspects at the headquarters of the command in Akure on Thursday, said the suspect killed his boss in Ondo town, with a cutlass while she was sleeping.
The CP further stated that Emmanuel was brought to work for Adedayo by his friend, Goodness Akpan, with an assurance that she was wealthy.
“Both of them fled to a village in Ogun State but were trailed there by police detectives, who arrested them,” Salami stated.
Emmanuel, in his confessional statement, said Goodness convinced him to kill his boss in order to steal her property. This was however denied by Goodness.
