Kabirat was discovered dead in her chamber, with a knife next to her and serious cuts on her neck and chest.
On Friday, February 4, 2023, in Abeokuta, Ogun state, a 22-year-old lady named Kabirat Sobola allegedly committed a cold-blooded murder in her chamber.
Kabirat, a graduate of the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic in Abeokuta, was discovered dead in her chamber with a knife next to her with serious cuts on her neck and chest.
The deceased’s boyfriend went to the police station to report her missing when she couldn’t be located for several hours; however, he was arrested.
The girl’s boyfriend, who is presently being held in connection with the case, was not warranted for indictment, according to the girl’s family.
A family member, who gave her name as Mrs Sobola told Punch:
“Kabirat was found dead on her bed with a knife beside her, having a deep cut on her neck and her chest.
“Her phone was missing; the police have neglected these parts without mentioning them in their report.
“When she was declared missing for days, her boyfriend went to make a complaint at the police station on Friday, March 3
“According to the DPO, the boyfriend met him at the counter, saying he was looking for his girlfriend, the DPO suspected him because it was not up to 24 hours.
“He asked him (boyfriend) when last he saw her, and he replied that he still talked with her around 10am on Friday, then, the police said it was just around 1pm, and he was reporting the incident.
“So the DPO detained him. The following day, the parents were also called because everyone had tried calling her but her phone wasn’t reachable.”
When they went to Kabirat’s residence to seek for her, according to Sobola, they found that her room was closed even though the police tracker claimed her phone was inside.
“When they opened the door, they saw a key on the ground, and they entered and saw the girl’s corpse lying on the bed and a knife was placed beside her.
“She had a deep cut on her neck, and on her left chest, her phone was missing. The police didn’t bother looking for it.
“From their findings about the guy, there is nothing that indicts the guy. They didn’t talk about the phone, knife, or anything.
“The guy is presently at Oba Prison and there would be another proceeding on April 27. We want justice for the girl, justice must be done.”
The incident has been forwarded to the Murder Department of the Ogun State Police Command, according to SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the command’s spokesperson.
Oyeyemi said: “From the investigation conducted, it was discovered that it was the boy that killed the girl, it seems they had fought before so, it seems he went to the girl’s house and killed her and he was arrested by the police and the case was transferred to the Homicide Section.”
