A 24-year-old lady, identified simply as Nkechi, has allegedly stabbed her lover to death during a fight in Sagbokoji Island, Apapa area of Lagos State, on Sallah day.

 

A 24-year-old lady, identified simply as Nkechi, has allegedly stabbed her lover to death during a fight in Sagbokoji Island, Apapa area of Lagos State, on Sallah day.

 

Nkechi, often known as Omalicha, was said to have relocated to her lover’s apartment a year ago.

 

The victim, Auwal Suleiman, 26, was said to have always accused Nkechi of cheating.

 

It was learnt that the incident often resulted in scuffles between the two.

 

It was gathered that while some of the residents were celebrating Sallah on Saturday evening, a shout for help was reportedly heard from the lovers’ apartment.

 

A resident, who simply identified himself as John, said, “Those of us celebrating Sallah with our Muslim brothers abandoned our food and drinks, when we heard the shout for help.

 

“We met Suleiman outside the apartment. Perhaps, he crept out of the room. He was bleeding profusely. He said Omalicha stabbed him in the neck.

 

“By then, she ( Omalicha) was running up and down looking for a boat to convey Suleiman to the hospital. But he could not make it.

 

“She shook him, called out his name several times, begging him to wake up. But there was no response from him. Suleiman was a graduate.”

 

According to John, the two lovers started dating in 2018, but she moved in into Suleiman’s apartment last year.

 

He said that members of the community had handed the suspect to the police.

 

State Police Public Relations Officer, Superintendent Bala Elkana, who was contacted for comments, said he only read the story on Instablog, where people were commenting.
