The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a 28-year-old man, Kelvin Michael, for the death of a 40-year-old woman, Monsurat Idowu.
The police alleged that Monsurat died after she had a “marathon sex” with Michael.
The suspect was said to have been arrested on Wednesday, August 15, 2018.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspect was arrested after one Benjamin Okereke of the Ota General Hospital, reported to the police that the suspect brought Monsurat to the hospital dead.
Okereke was said to have told the police that the suspect could not explain how the woman died.
“When the Divisional Police Officer, Onipanu Police Division, Sangobiyi Johnson, got the report, he led his men to the hospital where the suspect was promptly arrested,” the PPRO said.
Oyeyemi, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, explained that the suspect claimed to have met Monsurat last month in a bus at Ketu, Lagos State, where they exchanged phone numbers.
He said, “The suspect told the police that he invited her to the house of his friend in Ota where the deceased slumped and died shortly after they had sex.
“The police contacted Monsurat’s husband, Lamidi Idowu, who is a commercial bus driver.”
Oyeyemi said Lamidi told the police that he left his wife in the house hale and hearty while going to work, wondering what might have led to her untimely death.
He said the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, had ordered the transfer of the case to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Eleweran.
The PPRO said Monsurat’s corpse had been deposited in a mortuary for autopsy.
