Confirming the incident, spokesperson, Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, said: “Detectives led by DPOAjah visited the scene and the door was forced open, only to discover the lifeless body of Augusta and the female genital chopped off, in a pool of her own blood.
“Corpse was recovered, despite its fast decomposing state. Marks of violence and signs of struggle were detected on the body, which was deposited at General Hospital mortuary, Yaba, for autopsy and preservation.
“A note suspected to have emanated from the said Benjamin was recovered at the scene and treated as exhibit. Scene has been cordoned off to enable crime operatives gather evidence. Preliminary investigation is ongoing with a view to transferring the case to SCIID Panti, Yaba for discreet investigation.”

I’m truly sorry for the damage I have caused and the pain I have left, everything happened due to pain and betrayal, cheating, toxicity and all. All this you are speading are just lies, none of her body parts went missing. Nothing was intentional, We got into a fight and argument regarding (something I rather not say in other to protect her image and respect for the death) But all that which lead into argument and fight which lead to her carrying knife and stabbing then happened which I wished never happened. Nothing of all you saying are truth. I ran out of fear I have stabled someone and didn’t know what to do at that point but nothing was intentional and none of of her body was cut out how you all a lying and spreading. I deeply regret and will give in myself and say nothing but the truth as I know I have only few days on earth and only the truth can bring me peaceand bring Gods Acceptance. I contacted her mom since and yesterday as well and I’m going to turn myself in and believe I deserve death now but regardless of anything the true deserves to be said and previewed and not manipulated. I will turn myself in and pay with my own life, whatever the fate is I will take including death as there is no justification for taking a life. I will be accountable. But let the truth be the truth, thank you.
Killaboi was arrested in 2021 after allegedly using a stolen card to carry out a N150 million transaction via point of sale (POS).
