Bernard Simon, suspected killer of Oluyemisi Ogundana, commandant of Command Secondary School at the Armed Forces Command and Staff College (AFCSC), Jaji, Kaduna, has explained why he killed her.
Simon, who was among the 50 suspects paraded by Ali Janga, Kaduna state police commissioner, on Wednesday, said he killed Ogundana because she was fond of cheating the workers under her.
While parading the suspect, the police commissioner said Simon raped the naval officer to death. But Simon denied raping the deceased before killing her, saying he only hit her with an iron rod on her head.
He added that after dismembering her body, he packed them into two Ghana-must-go bags, dropped them in the officer’s SUV and drove off to where he dumped the two bags into a shallow well.
Simon said, “I killed Commander Ogundana alone. I sneaked into her house in the evening and hit her on the head with an iron rod.
“I killed her because she was cheating us in the school. I am a teacher in the school and she was cheating us. I killed her to set the whole staff of the school free from her.
“There are some financial benefits she deprived us of. She denied me N100,000. That is why I killed her to set myself and other staff free from her.”
