Unfortunately for Shagbaor, the POS machine Dooshima used to make the transfer to him was tracked.
Shagbaor was arrested and during interrogation he confessed to using the money to stake a bet and that he later called the lady who had paid him for a house and hacked her to d£ath.
“When she arrived at the dark corner of the street where I called her to come I cut her with a machete several times leading to her d£ath. After k! lling her, I took her body with her iPhone and dumped her body on the street to make it look like someone else k! lled her”, the publication quoted him as saying.
