A commercial sex worker in Bayelsa State, popularly called ‘Bini Girl’ has allegedly stabbed a soldier attached to the Joint Task Force (JTF), Operation Pulo Shield to death for refusing to pay for a daybreak sex romp. The soldier (names withheld) was reportedly stabbed twice in his stomach by the prostitute who hails from Edo State. According to reports from The Nation, the incident occurred at about 4am on Tuesday, at the popular red light district known as Hospital Road Junction along DSP Alamieyeseigha Way, Yenagoa.
Some of the sex workers said the soldier died immediately after he was stabbed, while others countered he died later in a hospital. One of them who pleaded anonymity said a heated argument emanated from the suspect’s shanty in the morning after many rounds of sex.
She said: “After the soldier refused to pay, there was an argument very early in the morning. The girl who was angry grabbed a knife and stabbed the soldier in the stomach. We later saw the soldier struggling with blood flowing from the wound in his stomach.
“We are now living in fear because there may be reprisal from other soldiers. Most of us have decided to stay away from the area for sometime.” The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hilary Opara, confirmed the incident and said the “culprit had been arrested.” He, however, said the police had yet to receive report of the victim’s death.
