• Police to compensate families of slain personnel in Lekki robbery
A staff of Silverbird, one Aishat Noble Mustapha, was at the weekend stabbed to death near her residence at Ogudu, Lagos, by her jealous boyfriend.
The deceased, who was described as charming and cheerful by her colleagues and acquaintances, was said to have been pregnant.
THISDAY gathered that the deceased was said to have been stabbed over 10 times by the said boyfriend, who has since been picked up by the police for interrogation.
Until her death, the deceased worked at the box office of the Silverbird Galleria Mall in Ikeja, Lagos.
It was gathered that the suspect was picked up based on information obtained from some neighbours who had witnessed them quarreling before the attack.
Refusing to believe her story, the suspect was said to have descended on her, after which he stabbed her repeatedly to death.
As at press time, efforts to confirm the arrest of the suspect by the police proved abortive as a text message sent to the state police spokesperson, DSP Kenneth Nwosu, was not replied.
In another development, the Lagos State Police Command has said that it will ensure that the families of its men who were killed during the recent armed robbery incident in Lekki are compensated for their losses.
Nwosu said: “There is compensation for any police officer that dies in service, and this one will not be an exception.”
He also said efforts were ongoing to arrest the perpetrators, hence the full scale investigation by the police.
