Michael was arrested after a staff of the Ota General Hospital, Benjamin Okereke, alerted the police when he brought Monsurat’s corspe to the hospital.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the incident, said Michael upon interrogation, said the suspect claimed to have met Monsurat last month in a bus at Ketu, Lagos State, where they exchanged phone numbers.
”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 the husband of the deceased 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. The PPRO said Monsurat’s corpse had been deposited in a mortuary for autopsy.
