Nnanyereugo Best Benjamin, widely recognized as “Killaboi”, has been captured in Sierra Leone. This arrest follows the tragic incident involving the alleged murder of his girlfriend, Augusta Osedion, a student of Lead City University.
“Justice may be delayed, but it’s never denied.”
After the incident, Benjamin didn’t just lay low. He embarked on a journey to start afresh, spending a whopping $25,000.
However, this wasn’t merely for a new Sierra Leonean passport. This amount encompassed his entire endeavor to establish a new identity. Adopting the name Kanu Princeton Samuel, he hoped to evade the long arm of the law.
However, the digital age leaves few places to hide. A photograph of Benjamin was disseminated on social media platforms by Augusta’s grieving family. This strategic move bore fruit when an eagle-eyed individual in Sierra Leone recognized him.
The renowned lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana, was promptly informed, leading to Benjamin’s arrest in a nightclub in Freetown.
So, what led to these tragic events?
According to sources, a heated argument between Benjamin and Augusta escalated, culminating in the alleged murder. Benjamin then took to social media, confessing to the crime, a move that shocked many of his followers.
Why Sierra Leone?
Sierra Leone, known for its rich history and beautiful landscapes, might have seemed like the perfect escape. With its bustling nightlife and the promise of anonymity, Freetown, the capital, was where Benjamin chose to hide. However, his lavish spending and the drastic change of identity raised eyebrows.
For those unfamiliar with the region, Sierra Leone is located in West Africa, bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, offering a blend of cultures, languages, and traditions. Its proximity to Nigeria might have made it a logical choice for Benjamin.
Social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter play a pivotal role in disseminating information. Augusta’s family leveraged this, ensuring Benjamin’s face was recognizable, leading to his eventual capture.
With Benjamin’s arrest, many await the legal proceedings.
