Barely three days after he was employed as a chef, has a Togolese man allegedly stabbed his master Chief Ope Badamosi to death in Lagos.
It was gathered that the incident occurred at Badamosi’s 3A, Onikoyi Road, Parkview Estate Resident on Wednesday.
The deceased was said to have brought his alleged killer from Ondo State to work as his cook.
Already, it was gathered that the police have arrested two persons in connection with the murder and they were being interrogated.
Although it could not be ascertained what led to the murder, sources told The Nation that the police have recovered the murder weapon as well as blood stain clothes belonging to the chef said to have fled.
It was gathered that the deceased was stabbed on the chest at the wee hours of Wednesday and neighbours learnt of the incident after an alarm was raised around 9 am.
“This is the third time that we have had Togolese attacks in the estate and there have been two casualties-Mrs Adeleke’s daughter last year and this present one.
“We had Fasade’s attempted murder last year. We must implore all residents to desist from hiring these foreign nationals,” a resident said.
Police spokesman Chike Oti, a Chief Superintendent (CSP) confirmed the incident, adding that the command was on the trail of the suspect.
Oti confirmed that two persons have been arrested.
He said: “We suspect he was killed by his cook whom he employed three days ago. We have recovered the murder knife and the blood stained cloth worn by him. We are on his trail. Two persons have been arrested and are being questioned.”
