Share This


Benjamin Best Nnanyereugo, the gambler better known as Killaboi, who was declared wanted by the Nigerian police for allegedly killing his girlfriend, has been arrested in Sierra Leone.

Benjamin Hundeyin, the Lagos state police spokesperson, confirmed Killaboi’s arrest on Saturday.


Nnanyereugo was said to have been apprehended at a nightclub on Friday in Freetown.


The Lagos state police command declared Killaboi wanted on October 10 for the death of Augusta Osedion.


This was after Nnanyereugo confessed to the murder of his 21-year-old lover.


Osedion was allegedly murdered on July 13 in Killaboi’s home at Oral Estate in the Ajah area of the state.


On July 17, the gambler said he “mistakenly” stabbed her to death during an argument and never intended to kill Osedion.


 “What is life now I want to turn myself in I’m not a bad person I swear I’m not a bad person But with what has happened I think I deserve nothing but death I will gladly die, by hanging, by shooting, whichever way fate has for me,” he had said.


“I’m willing I can’t live with this guilt knowing the girl I loved so much died in my own hands oh Gooooooood why this What do I do now I deserve death, I want to die.”


Hundeyin earlier revealed that the police had been unable to apprehend the gambler through other means, so they had to issue the public declaration.


He also urged the public to contact the police if they have any information about Killaboi’s whereabouts.
