Until 2 days ago when police called her family to tell them she was late and the circumstances of her death. Police also apprehended two gangsters who allegedly raped and killed her. The suspects, John-Paul Chukwuebuka, 19; and Ebuka Chimudi, 22; belonged to a gang which specialised in luring young ladiesto hotels with the aim of dispossessing them of their belongings and raping them.
According to police authorities, on April 10, 2013, two members of the gang posed as customers and visited the Happy Day Hotel, Orile. Oluwatosin was approached by the suspects and she took them into her room at the hotel which she secured at the cost of N3, 500 per day.The suspects were said to have overpowered Oluwatosin and stuffed a cloth in her mouth to prevent her from screaming.
She was also bound by the hands, while the suspects took turns in raping her.Afterwards, the suspects were said to have stolen her phone and money before locking her inside the room.The suspects were also said to have taken the key of the room and tossed it into a canal.
A relative of the deceased said the following morning, when the hotel attendants wanted to clean the hotel
rooms, they knocked on the door of the room where Oluwatosin was, but there was no response.
It was learnt that the attendants then used a spare key to open the door and the corpse of Oluwatosin was found. Her father, Babatunde, told PUNCH Metro that the matter was reported at the Orile Police Station and his daughter’s corpse was taken to the Mainland Hospital, Yaba.
Babatunde said he had no idea that his daughter was a commercial sex worker. He said the family had been looking for her since December last year and had reported her missing at the Adeniji Adele Police Division on the Lagos Island.
“My daughter was in JSS3 in 2012 when she dropped out of school. She said she wanted to be a sales girl and we got a job for her, but she did not stay there. Suddenly, in December last year, she left the house and did not return home. Her mother and I called her on the telephone several times, but she would say she was fine and putting up in a friend’s place. She used to visit her grandmother, but in January, she stopped picking calls.All attempts to get her proved abortive. We did not hear anything from her until we received a telephone call a few days ago, saying her corpse had been found in a hotel.”
The mother of the deceased, Muibat, lamented that Oluwatosin was her third child that would die within five years. She said the deceased was her first born and she had only two children remaining. She said she did her best as a parent and wondered why her daughter chose such a lifestyle.
