Chief Ope Badamosi, Chairman of Credit Switch Technology, has been murdered in cold blood by his Togolese male cook at his Parkview Estate residence in Ikoyi area of Lagos State.
The septuagenarian was killed on Wednesday morning inside his house at Onikoyi Lane by the cook simply identified as Sunday three days after the deceased employed his killer.
Report said Sunday, who is on the run, from indication is an ex-serviceman. The villain having killed his victim made away with valuables including money.
Quoting a police officer in the Force Homicide Investigation Team investigating the vile act, This Day wrote: “He stabbed the man in multiple places. I was the first to enter the apartment. In fact, the music was so loud that even if you were to be killing 20 people here, no one would hear them scream. I was the one that put off the sound upon entering.
“After committing the act, the guy went to the toilet and pulled off the white uniform meant for cooks he was wearing because it was all stained with blood. He also left the knife he used inside the toilet there. If you see the knife, it’s a very strong, long and sharp knife that could only be authorised for military personnel. Afterward, he ransacked the whole apartment and carted away all valuables he could lay his hands on including an unaccountable sum of money, jewelries and the deceased phone.
“What baffles us more is that, no one seems to know anything about him because he was only employed few days ago and brought from Ondo state to resume just this last Sunday. And they only know him by his first name, which is Sunday. Again, we went through his things and found some old pictures of him putting on a camouflage belonging to republic of Benin military. Also he was in a group picture with all of them wearing Benin Republic military uniform, which suggests that he could be an ex-service man in Benin Republic.”
