Precious Nety, a commercial sex worker, has been killed by a client who hired her for all night sex at a popular hotel in Galadima area of Maiduguri in Borno State.
The incident happened on Wednesday, March 28, 2018.
A hotel proprietor in the same Galadima told journalists that the late Precious Nety, who is of Benue origin lodged the client in her room and they both slept, but surprisingly to her neighbours, as the day broke, they neither saw the deceased nor her client while her room was locked from outside.
“Upon suspicion after trying all means to locate her, the room’s door was broken and to the shock of everyone, her lifeless body was found in the toilet with her throat slit and knife scars on her hands.
“The unknown killer client also fled with the late Miss Nety’s Plasma Television and other valuables, and so far, two other hotels in the area including the Galaxy hotel where the incident occurred is under lock by the police. There is serious tension in the whole of the area which has equally affected patronage, as people are keeping off to avoid arrest,” the proprietor said.
Confirming the incident, Edet Okon, the Borno state Police Public Relations Officer, said the case was reported to the Command.
“Two arrests have been made. We acted on the information received and the investigation is ongoing. We are in the process of arresting more people and investigation is ongoing,” DSP Okon said.
