Tanko Abdulateef, a 22-year-old security guard who allegedly killed his employer, Mrs Mabel Mba Okafor, in Ajah, Lagos, on August 17, 2016 has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command.

Tanko was arrested in Bali, Taraba State, where he fled to after he allegedly stabbed his victim in the stomach and left her stomach ripped open.
The incident was confirmed by the Public Relation Officer of the State Command of the Nigerian Police, Dolapo Badmos. She said the suspect would be charged to court after the conclusion of the investigation.
It was gathered that the suspect took away valuable items from the victim including three phones, trinket and a lot of clothes, all of which were recovered from him.
Giving a background of the crime, Badmos said: “On August 17, 2016, there was a murder of one Mrs Mabel Mba Okafor aged 50 of No J68B, Close 9, Victoria Garden City (VGC), Ajah. She was killed and the policemen went there and discovered that the house had been ransacked and a lot of properties carted away.
“The woman had a House guard but the guard was nowhere to be found. The body of the victim was examined and it was noticed that she was stabbed in the stomach and her stomach ripped open.
“She was moved over to the mortuary and the policemen from the division did a necessary scene of crime investigations they were supposed to do, while the matter was transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
“The Commissioner of Police also called on the Decoy Team of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) in charge of Tracking and tasked them to deal with the matter as well, while the Team swung into operation and after about one week of serious work on the matter, they were able to identify the suspect to be the House guard of the victim and they tracked him to Bali in Taraba State.
“After about three days in Bali, they were able to recover some of the phones stolen from the victim before eventually arresting the suspect where he was hiding,” she narrated.
Badmos also confirmed that three phones, trinket and a lot of the victim’s clothes were recovered from the suspect, adding that he has been brought back to Lagos.
While reiterating the capacity of the Police to deal with criminals and any crime situation in the State, Badmos said people should be rest assured that any crime committed in the State will be thoroughly investigated and culprit brought to justice.
“There is no escape route for criminals in Lagos State. Any crime committed in Lagos will be unraveled. If you commit a crime in Lagos and run to anywhere in Nigeria, the Police in Lagos will come after you,” she said.
Meanwhile, the suspect has been handed over to the State CID for further investigation, while he will be charged to court at the end of investigation.
