A 21-year-old undergraduate of Lead University, Ibadan, Oyo State, identified as Augusta Osedion has been reportedly killed by her lover, Benjamin, in Oral Estate, Ikota, Ajah, Lagos.

According to reports, the lovebirds had a misunderstanding, which degenerated into a fight and the victim, Augusta, was stabbed to death in the process.

It was learned that on 11th July 2023, Augusta called her mother that she quarrelled with her boyfriend. Unfortunately, all efforts by her, Onwabhagbe Cordelia, to reconcile her and her boyfriend failed.

Trouble, however, started when all attempts by Augusta’s mother to reach her or her boyfriend again on their phones and other mediums failed.

Worried by the development, Onwabhagbe Cordelia resorted to reaching the daughter’s roommate, who led her to the boyfriend’s house, at Oral Estate, Ikota, Ajah.

According to Cordelia, who reported the case to the police on 15th July, “When we got to my daughter’s boyfriend’s house, her Mercedes Benz C30 was parked in front of the building but the apartment was locked.”

Spokesperson of Lagos State Police Command, Superintendent Benjamin Hundeyin said: “Detectives led by DPOAjah visited the scene and the door was forced open, only to discover the lifeless body of Augusta and the female genital chopped off, in a pool of her own blood.

“Corpse was recovered, despite its fast decomposing state. Marks of violence and signs of struggle were detected on the body, which was deposited at the General Hospital mortuary, Yaba, for autopsy and preservation.

“A note suspected to have emanated from the said Benjamin was recovered at the scene and treated as exhibit. Scene has been cordoned off to enable crime operatives gather evidence. Preliminary investigation is ongoing with a view to transferring the case to SCIID Panti, Yaba for discreet investigation.”

Meanwhile, the suspect, Benjamin, who is currently on the run through his Instagram handle on Monday confessed to the crime.

He said: “I am truly sorry for the damage I have caused and the pain I have left, everything happened due to pain and betrayal, cheating, toxicity and all.

“None of her body parts went missing. Nothing was intentional. We got into a fight and argument regarding something I rather not say in order to protect her image and respect for the dead.

“But all that which led into argument and fight which led to her carrying a knife and stabbing then happened, which I wished never happened. I ran out of fear. I stabbed someone and didn’t know what to do at that point but nothing was intentional and none of her body parts was cut out.

“I deeply regret and will give up myself and say nothing but the truth as I know I have only a few days on earth and only the truth can bring me peace and bring God’s acceptance.

“I contacted her mom, yesterday, as well and I’m going to turn myself in and believe I deserve death now but regardless of anything, the truth deserves to be said and previewed and not manipulated.

“I will turn myself in and pay with my own life. Whatever the fate is, I will take it, including death as there is no justification for taking a life. I will be accountable”.
