A member of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, identified as Augustine Ohimai has been arrested by men of the Nigeria Police for killing a prostitute, Favour Edoh, after they engaged in a sex romp.
Saturday Sun reports that the incident happened on August 20, 2019 when Mr.Ohimai was on his way to Bauchi State for the NYSC orientation camp and he lodged in City Rock Hotel, Maraba, Nasarawa State, with the 22-year-old alleged sex worker.
He later abandoned the corps of Miss Favour in the hotel after a sex romp with her and escaped. Not until he was arrested in Benin City on January 17, 2020.
He now regrets his actions and pleads for forgiveness, insisting that it was just a natural death of the prostitute and not a ritual influenced death.
Narrating the incident, he said:
“On my way to Bauchi, I stopped at Maraba in Nasarawa State because the journey was very far. I asked a commercial motorcycle driver to take me to an affordable hotel. He took me to City Rock Hotel. Because I had only a few hours before boarding another bus to Bauchi, the receptionist agreed to collect N2, 500 from me.
After I checked into a room, I went out to look for water and something to eat. Some prostitutes hustling in the vicinity of the hotel approached me and asked if I’d need their service and I was interested. They asked for N5, 000, but one of them, who later told me her name was Favour, agreed to take N2, 000 for the night. She said that there was no customer and the day was already over.”
Having paid the sex worker, she followed me to my hotel room.
“I took my bath and we started making love, I was still on the first round when I discovered that her body was no longer moving. I checked her and I realized she was gone”
“I was scared. I moved her severally to see if she would wake. I decided to run away because I knew no one would believe my story.”
At 6:30 am, I sneaked out of the hotel premises and took the first bus out of the city.
After being caught, he said:
“I have never slept with a prostitute before. Although, I have a fiancée who I am planning to marry at the end of my NYSC programme, I wanted to know the difference; I wanted to have a taste of sex with a prostitute.”
“I am sure she was sick because I did not do much before she died,” he said. “I do not take drugs or alcohol. I ran away only because I was terrified.”
“I do not do Yahoo Yahoo. I am a dedicated child of God. You can go to my church and ask about me. I did not take anything from her, even the money that I gave her was still in her purse when I left”.
“I want to use this opportunity to beg her family to forgive me. The devil took advantage of my weakness to put me in trouble. If God save me from this problem, I promise to be a pastor and serve God all the days of my life.”
However, investigations into the matter continues and he will be charged to court thereafter.
Mr.Ohimai is a graduate of Auchi Polytechnic.
