Speaking to journalists, one of the suspects, Adanma Joseph, corroborated the account of the police about what transpired between them and the deceased.
According to her, they attempted to steal from the deceased who wanted to have sex with her and her friend, Favour Vandora Davies, but in the process the man died.
She said she worked for the deceased in his clubhouse for about three months in 2022 until the clubhouse was shut down by government, marking the beginning of their relationship.
The suspect said that she got her friend involved in the attempt to steal from the decease when he requested to have sex with her.
According to her, the initial idea was to lure him to have sex with them in his car, on the belief that they would find money in the car.
She, however, said they eventually ended up in a room where they tied the deceased on pretense of a having a sex rump, adding that when the deceased attempted to shout they covered his mouth with a pillow.
According to her, they didn’t know that the man was dead when they left with his phone, saying that they thought he was pretending to be asleep.
The suspects, however, expressed regret for their action.
