A 27-year-old suspected Yahoo boy, Obeta John, has been arrested by the Ogun state Police Command for the alleged murder of his girlfriend, Idowu Buhari, an HND1 Mass Communication student of Gateway polytechnic Saapade.
It was gathered that on Tuesday, Nov 29, John locked himself and his girlfriend inside his room and was beating and hitting her head against the wall, and all efforts made to persuade him to open the door proved abortive. Concerned neighbors were said to have put a distress call across to the Ode -Remo divisional police headquarters where policemen were led to the scene of the incident.
Upon forcefully gaining access to the room, the deceased was found in the pool of her blood and was quickly rushed to State Hospital Ishara, where she was pronounced dead by the doctor on duty. John was thereafter arrested and taken into custody.
During interrogations, the suspect was said to have confessed to being an internet fraudster and that a certain amount of money from one of his clients was paid into the account of his girlfriend which she refused to hand over to him.
The deceased refusal to relinquish the money led to a fight between them which eventually led to her death.
