A 26 -year old commercial sex worker, Hope Okafor has admitted stabbing her client, Samuel Sarumi to death.
Inspector Ada Erondu disclosed this while giving evidence in the trial of the commercial sex worker before Justice Lateefat Okunnu of a Lagos High Court, Ikeja.


Okafor is standing trial for allegedly stabbing Sarumi at about 11:30pm on March 2, 2010 at Nice Time Hotel, Ipaja and which later caused his death.
Erondu of the state Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba, told the court that the defendant had admitted the crime.
The investigating police officer told the court that when she visited the crime scene, the defendant told her that she stabbed the deceased person in her hotel room.
"When I got to the hotel, the hotel manager and the owner told me Okafor was in her room, and that she was hiding from an angry mob."
"I was told that the victim, Sarumi, came out of her hotel room with blood all over him.
"When I got to the crime scene, I saw pieces of broken bottle on the floor which we later recovered.
"The defendant was the only prostitute I met at the crime scene. Other commercial sex workers had absconded.
"She told me there that she stabbed the deceased, but that she didn't know the victim would die."
The witness, who was led in evidence by the Principal State Counsel, Mosunmola Balogun, told the court that Okafor had complained of some pains.
"The defendant complained that she was having pains all over her body, but I couldn't see any physical injury on her. I took her to the hospital to be examined," she said.
