It was gathered that detectives from Ajah Police Station had forced open the door to the apartment located at Oral Estate, Ikota, Ajah, after Augusta’s mother reported her inability to reach her daughter.
It was learnt that the woman had received a call from her daughter, an undergraduate at Lead University, Ibadan, Oyo State, on July 11, that she had a quarrel with her lover and would be going to his place for them to resolve the issue.
The woman, sources said, reported that she made efforts to reconcile them but was not able to reach either of them on their phones and had to locate one of her friends who took her to Benjamin’s residence in Ajah on Saturday, July 15.
On arrival at the residence, it was learnt that the women saw her daughter’s Mercedes Benz C30 outside of Benjamin’s house and they knocked several times on the door with no response from there.
They were said to have gone to the estate’s security post to complain but were asked to go to the Police Station so that the police would come and open the door.
Yeileing to the suggestion, Augusta’s mother, it was gathered, went to the police station, filed a complaint and the Divisional Police Officer, DPO led detectives to the apartment to force open the door.
“As soon as the door was opened by the police, the body of the girl was discovered in a pool of her blood with her private part chopped off. The body was fast decompassing and was quickly recovered,” said a police source.

He confirmed that a note was recovered from the scene, adding that efforts were on to apprehend the suspect.
Meanwhile, Benjamin, it was gathered, took to his Instagram page to confess to have stabbed Augusta by mistake during an argument, adding that he fled the scene out of fear.
