Meanwhile, Newsone Nigeria recalls that the Nigerian punter Killaboi also known as Killaverse confessed to killing his girlfriend identified as Augusta Osedion on social media in July 2023, two years after he was arrested for internet fraud by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), a Nigerian law enforcement agency that investigates financial crimes such as advance fee fraud and money laundering.
Killaboi’s girlfriend was reportedly missing for days until her mother went to Killaboi’s house at Oral Estate in the Ikota area of Lagos state, Nigeria’s commercial city, to look for her. Prior to Augusta, missing, Newsone learned that her mother had tried to reconcile her and her boyfriend over an issue they had.
Killaboi who cried about messing up his life at 26 in a series of posts he shared on his Instagram story, promised to ensure his late girlfriend gets justice as he can’t live with the guilt. He however disclosed that he ran away after committing the murder out of fear. He further shared a message he sent to his late girlfriend’s mother.
Taking to the micro-blogging site, Twitter on Monday, July 17, Killaboi wrote: “I will do the right thing, I will turn myself in.“I can’t live with this guilt knowing someone I loved died in my own hand.
“I’m deeply and truly sorry but I want no sympathy.
I’m ready to give my life now, I’m ready.
“She’s dead and I need to be too
“It’s sad I achieved a lot and ruined my life by myself at age of 26 but it has happened and I full of regret and wish I can take time back, but since I can’t will turn myself in and give the family peace.
“I’m ready for anything including death cause I believe I truly deserve it and I ask for God’s forgiveness,” he added.
