How man killed his boss in Lagos over N150k to travel to Dubai

                                      
A look at this 32 year-old man, Sani Saidu, will never pass him for a betrayer, let alone a killer, owing to his quiet disposition and soft way of speaking. But his disposition has only proved to be deceptive after all, as he is currently cooling his heels at the Lagos State CID over a case of alleged murder.

The Gombe state born suspect allegedly stabbed his Oga, Mr Shittu Aremu, driver of a truck to death while accompanying him to their Port Harcourt destination with 40,000 litre of petroleum product.
The late Aremu whose age was put around 56 years, was a driver to S.K Transport Service Nigeria Limited. He reportedly loaded the truck with plate number AGL 368 XA with aviation fuel worth N5.5 million and consequently left Lagos for Port Harcourt on November 13, 2014, to discharge the product.

The speculations have followed the actress ever since. 

Speaking about it in an interview with Allure magazine, Jennifer said it hurts her that people think she chose her career over children and that it is wrong for people to assume that women who decide not to have children are somehow perceived to have failed in life.
