A 28-year-old Nigerian woman, believed to be a commercial sex worker has been allegedly stabbed to death by her client in Takoradi.
Vera Edafeh Oboko was stabbed several times and her body dumped in a washroom at the Ridge Way Hotel.
DSP Olivia Adiku who speaks for the Western regional police command told Adom News that an attendant of the hotel first reported the incident to the Takoradi police after workers saw blood spillage from the room of the clients.
“We moved to the hotel and saw the blood but couldn’t enter the room because the door was locked. But after several failed attempts to open the door; we forcibly broke into the room.”
“We saw her [Obolo] naked with the stabs in her stomach, throat and her left thigh in a pool of blood,” she said.
The body has since been deposited at the Afia Nkwanta government hospital pending investigations while the suspect, believed to be a military officer is on the run.
