He confessed that, contrary to claims that, himself and one other killed the Naval Officer, he did it alone when he sneaked into her house at the Jaji Military Cantonment and hit her on the head with an iron rod.

According to the 36-year-old Simon, “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 school. I am a teacher in the school and she was cheating us as staff under her. I killed her to set the whole staff of the school free from her cheats.

“There are some financial benefits she deprived us of. She denied me in particular of over N100,000. That is why I killed her to set myself and other staff free from her.” he said.

Simon who equally admitted throwing Commander Ogundana’s mutilated body into a shallow well, however, said he regretted his action.
