Truck pusher stabs prostitute to death
A 22-year-old truck pusher, identified as Samuel Akuro, is now in the hospital under the watchful eyes of the police for allegedly stabbing a female prostitute to death in the oil-rich city of Warri, Delta State.
The suspect, it was gathered, also stabbedhimself out of fear of the mob, when it dawned on him that his victim had died.
Sources gathered that the incident startedwhen the truck pusher visited a brothel along Okere road and approached two ladies, who separately turned him down.
Sources disclosed that the prostitutes refused Samuel because he did not have money, though he was well known as a regular customer.
Unperturbed, Samuel, it was learnt, relocated to another brothel at No 26, twobuildings away from the first one where his advances were again rejected until he saw the deceased, who had been his regular customer and had also rejected his move.
“It was at this stage that Samuel became angry and drew a bottle, broke it and stabbed the girl. When he realized that thegirl was dying and there was a surging crowd advancing towards the hotel, Samuel, afraid of being mobbed, stabbed himself with the aim of committing suicide,” a security source disclosed.
We learnt that the stabbed prostitute was later rushed to the Warri Central Hospital where she gave up the ghost while doctors and nurses were battling to save her.
The suspect was apprehended by security men from “A” Division Police, Warri, and was taken to the Warri Central Hospital fortreatment.
We observed, during a visit to the Hospital on Friday, that the suspect was hand-cuffed to a stretcher as a result of his ‘violent nature’
