Man stabs girlfriend to death in Lagos

The Lagos state police command has arrested a man Emmanuel Chukwuma, for stabbing his 45-year-old girlfriend, Bosede Adefehinti, to death.



It was gathered that the man, popularly known as Oliver on 7th Avenue, Festac was sharing his apartment with his girlfriend but not as a married couple.



An eyewitness told Vanguard that this wasn’t the first time the lovers had issues at their shared apartment.



He said, “Yesterday around 2:30 pm, Oliver stabbed his girlfriend, and after stabbing her, he tried to kill himself by jumping into the well, but we stopped him and called the police.



“They are not married, and this is not the first time they have had issues, but yesterday’s was beyond anything before.




“What I believe caused the fight was an inferiority complex on the man’s part because he has no job and helps his girlfriend sell herbal medicines, popularly known as Agbo—a concoction prepared from a variety of herbs.



“So most times, when he’s selling, the girlfriend leaves the shop while he remains there, sometimes receiving banter from the customers.”



Lagos State Police Spokesman, SP Benjamin Hundeyin confirmed the sad incident in a shot statament.



He stated, “At about 3:10 pm, a distress call was received that one Emmanuel Chukwuma, aged 47 years, stabbed his girlfriend, Bosede Adefehinti, aged 45 years, to death.
