Precious was said to have used a blade to fatally slit the stomach of Emmanuel.
She then quickly boarded a motorcycle to escape the scene, but the bike rider drove her to the station and handed her over to the police.
The manager of the hotel where the two lodged for the night said it was the biker who after taking the suspect to the station that informed him of the tragic event.
The manager said: “When I got to the station, I saw the girl; she is a sex worker, and was not remorseful about what she did. Even when she was handcuffed, she was still not remorseful, until when they were transferring the case and she was told that she might never come back.
“The incident did not happen in the hotel, but opposite the hotel and my only saving grace was the motorcyclist who took her to the station and informed me. I learnt that she was taken to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba.”
The Lagos State Police Command is yet to make comment on the incident.
