Prostitute stabs soldier to death

A commercial sex worker yesterday murdered a soldier attached to the Joint Military Task Force, codenamed Operation Pulo Shield, for refusing to pay after going to bed with her. The prostitute, referred to as ‘Bini Girl’, reportedly stabbed the soldier (name withheld) twice in the stomach.

It was gathered that the incident, which occurred about 4am yesterday, caused pandemonium at the popular red light zone known as Hospital Junction on DSP Alamieyeseigha Way. Most of the men, who slept overnight with other prostitutes in their shanties, quickly dressed up and fled to avoid being detected by onlookers attracted by the incident.

Sex workers, who spoke with our correspondent, claimed that the soldier’s intestines came out while the man bled profusely. It was gathered that the refusal by the soldier to pay after an all-night round of sex led to an argument the following morning.

The infuriated sex worker was said to have grabbed a knife and stabbed him in the stomach. A source, who identified himself as Chika, said that the killing caused panic in the area as the sex workers fled. He said: “The incident has created fear among the prostitutes and they have deserted the area.

“We heard an argument coming from the prostitute’s room and the next thing we saw was the soldier struggling with blood flowing from the wound in his stomach.” When contacted, the Commissioner of Police, Mr Hilary Opara, confirmed the incident and disclosed that the culprit had been arrested and facing investigation.

He said: “But we are yet to receive report that the soldier died. The soldier is recuperating in the hospital.” However, when contacted on the incident, the media coordinator of the Joint Task Force (JTF), Lieutenant Colonel Mustapha Anka, said that he was in a meeting.
